Madrid, Jul 30 (EFE) .- The until now presenter of the weekend news of Madrid public television Telemadrid Silvia Intxaurrondo will direct the TVE morning program “La hora de La 1”, replacing Mónica López, have informed to Efe sources of the negotiation.
The Basque journalist (Baracaldo, 1979) was the director and presenter of Telemadrid’s “Telenoticias Fin de Semana” and left the regional channel after new managers were appointed this month by the Government of Isabel Díaz Ayuso.
The Ayuso Government appointed José Antonio Sánchez as provisional administrator of Telemadrid on July 14, a week after the plenary session of the Assembly approved the modification of the law that regulates regional public television, promoted by the PP and which went ahead thanks to the abstention of Vox.
The following Friday, Sánchez dismissed the management team of regional television and public radio, including the general director of Onda Madrid, Ángel Rubio, and the news director of Telemadrid, Jon Ariztimuño.
The members of the so-called Platform for a Free RTVE, who in 2018 criticized the “dismissals and similar appointments” of the new team of which Rosa María Mateo was the sole administrator, have not seen with good eyes the arrival of Silvia Intxaurrondo.
Intxaurrondo was already on La 1 de TVE in January 2018, when he presented the program “Desaparecidos”, directed by Paco Lobatón.
