Daniel Coronell, Univision's president of news, tweeted that "Jorge Ramos and his team have been released and are on route to their hotel".
According to Univision spokesman Jose Zamora, Ramos and his team traveled to Caracas to interview Maduro. "The equipment and the material of the interview that [Nicolas Maduro] disliked were confiscated", he said.
'They were interviewing @NicolasMaduro but he didn't like the questions.
"We insist on their immediate release; the world is watching".
Editor's Note: The story has been updated to reflect that Ramos and his team have been released from the presidential palace, according to latest reports. The interview kept being postponed and taping didn't start until 7 p.m.
The official social media account for Univision tweeted the report about Ramos. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was seemingly able to call Univision to explain what was happening "when the phone was taken from him & the call ended".
Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) who has been actively following the events in Venezuela and attempting to shape USA policy in the region, tweeted more details about the detention.
Maduro's regime is under increasing pressure from the global community to relinquish power after a disputed election.
