The veteran journalist made the decision after celebrating his last birthday: "You need to remember that you can live"
«Dear Fernando: you need to remember that you can live, the radio is very beautiful, but the radio was very slave, very permanent and I am a tiresome worker». This is how the veteran journalist, Fernando Ónega, has announced that he is retiring from the microphones after more than 30 years of profession. He has announced it on the morning show 'Más de uno' with Carlos Alsinas on Onda Cero, his house during these years, where he has said goodbye to the listeners and his colleagues, assuring that it is a "sweet and sad" moment at the same time".
It was a decision, as he has told in the program he had been part of since 2015, that he made after celebrating his last birthday and reflecting on the song by Julio Iglesias 'I forgot to live'. There she realized that "I have forgotten that there were extensions of the weekends, I have forgotten that there were bridges, I have not enjoyed a single bridge in my entire life."
Ónega participated in other broadcasts of the house, such as La Brújula, in which he put an end to the broadcast giving his point of view on the most outstanding events of the day.
Even so, during his professional career he has not only dedicated himself to the radio. Apart from directing news programs on Spanish Television and being deputy director and director of other written media such as 'Ya', the Galician journalist was press director of the Presidency of the Government of Adolfo Suárez as well as the author of a large part of his speeches .
