An avid cyclist, Monica Marachante is a highly respected Spanish sports journalist working for Movistar +. Now she finds herself at the other end of the line and answers our questions in anticipation of the awards jury’s verdict:
What was the most interesting project that you worked in the past eighteen months?
The most interesting project I have worked on recently has been my section in “El Día Después”, tv show of Movistar + about La Liga. The section is called “La hora Marchante” and we do this show every Monday night the most curious and interesting images about la Liga day.
In your opinion, what is a mission of a sports journalist?
I think that a mission of a sports journalist is to transmit the values and passion of football to the fans, the work and sacrifice behind the soccer stars.
What was the most memorable interview that you made in the eighteen months year?
I am particularly attached to an interview that I did with Iker Casillas for “El Día Después” a few months before suffering his heart attack. He seemed to be happy and enjoying football with serenity and the same old passion.
