Mamen Mendizábal spoke this Saturday with Iñaki López on ‘laSexta noche’ to detail the reasons why he stopped presenting ‘Better late’, a format that she has captained since its premiere in 2012. The journalist announced last Friday that on June 30 she will close a stage of almost ten years to face new projects in Atresmedia.
In a video call with the night space of the green chain, Mendizábal explained that it is a very thoughtful decision: “We had been thinking about it for a long time and now the circumstances have arisen”. “This is a personal revolution, a change in the cycle. That means learning, fun, nerves … It is a challenge,” he acknowledged.
When asked what she feels when she leaves her “comfort zone”, Mendizábal confessed that all these years she has had “more loyalty to the audience” than to her own family. A circumstance that has not allowed him to reconcile work and family life: “I don’t know what it’s like to pick up a child from school, to take care of someone when they get sick. I work from Monday to Friday no matter what. It is a way of life that I have chosen, but that also has a great personal cost “.
On the other hand, during her speech at ‘laSexta noche’, Mamen Mendizábal was grateful to the communication group for rewarding her with a new format: “They have given me an opportunity. LaSexta and Atresmedia have hoped to carry out another project by leaving this one, They have given me wings. I am very happy. ”
A project that you still can’t get ahead of much: “I will continue on laSexta and linked to Atresmedia. I’m preparing projects for prime time and I hope they come out in the short term. ”
