Belizeans have been making their mark on the international scene as of late. Rebecca Stirm sewed her way to Caribbean stardom on Mission Catwalk, Chantae Guy strut to the Top Model Finals at Miss World 2013 and more recently, the Jaguars made a roar at their first appearance at the Gold Cup.

He made his debut on the network last week, after he broke the story of the first criminal charges filed in the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Here is portion of his appearance on OutFront With Erin Burnett.
