María Teresa Campos reigns again in the mornings after her death

María Teresa Campos is again this Tuesday, much to her regret, the queen of the mornings. She said that she was an agnostic and it would be fair to remember that her religion was Journalism, and her faith, love for her loved ones, her viewers and listeners and her profession.

Impossible not to imagine the deceased, resurrected thanks to archive images, seeing herself reigning today again in the mornings of all the big chains (and in the rest of the day), laughing for making her colleagues work, or covering the news of her death, as she did so many times with other greats who left and made the news as she is today. Tomorrow, Wednesday, she would shout first thing in the morning to demand the audience data, getting very angry (but only for a moment) if her share did not seem enough to her.

María Teresa worked with the ingenuity, the incredible speed, the cunning and the immense ability that we knew her, but also with her subordinates she exhibited an unusual generosity, not to mention in her personal life, towards her family and towards people in general.

Since Sunday, the newsrooms of all the media were preparing to give the news of the end of her life, as she would have done. The official communiqués, the broken-voiced statements by her daughters and those who visited the Jiménez Díaz Foundation were the prelude to the inevitable outcome that we feared.

The cuché magazines, which go on sale on Wednesdays but close on Mondays, awaited with a heavy heart the painful confirmation that the communicator had left us. They will not carry the news of his death in their printed editions, but they will carry his image. The radio and television programs, since Sunday, had also collected archive sounds and images, so abundant in the stations and in the three main chains as to fill centuries, because María Teresa played all the styles in many media, outside of politics, events, social chronicle or whatever current events forced to address and it was prolific as few professionals.

He worked with the best and produced great professionals who today follow his teachings and innovations. Because she was a pioneer. She was a news director in the early 80s, when she, as a woman, was unusual and exceptional. the deceased jesus hermida and other sacred monsters of journalism like Iñaki Gabilondo o louis del olmo, who worked with her, agree that she was an immense communicator. The man from Leon, who shared a microphone on Punto Radio with her, and praised her natural gift for connecting with people on the street, remembered with sadness the deceased “soul companion” and repeated this Tuesday in the media that she was a “reference “for the profession.

He started to die when he lost his window to the world

The doctors will determine the formal cause of the journalist’s death, but María Teresa began to die when she lost her window to the world, a channel to communicate. She literally begged for a job, but not for money but because she was a vocational addict to the profession that established her as a goddess of journalism, very loved, very human and very close. She physically touched, she still wanted to talk to the audience about her, interview, tell what happens. She always wanted it, and this Tuesday, and probably for more days, she has appeared again, already lifeless, to win the battle of her last morning, of her last day. Susanna Griso on Antena 3, Patricia Pardo on Telecinco and Jaime Cantizano on TVE fight to win the battle and today the weapon to gather viewers is called María Teresa Campos. She would be there telling it if she could. She rest in peace.
