Gabilondo, who has received the special Ondas, said that this is his “farewell award”, because in 2022 he will be 80 years old and it is time to retire. “I’m already fed up with myself,” he joked, as he offered a piece of information that said a lot about his long career. “Today I realized, very impressed, that my first Waves was received in November 1969!”. The one who has a lot left to retire, and has a lot to offer, is Roberto Leal, the one that was incombustible presenter of ‘OT, that now shoots in Antena 3 with’Pass word‘. “The beauty of the awards is the recognition of the colleagues. Now you just have to think about enjoying it. Because people say: now we have to continue. But you also have to enjoy it, “he commented.
An award for Pau Donés
Another fireproof being, despite the fact that his illness has him bedridden in a wheelchair, is Bop pop, who received the Ondas with double pride for “Lost fag”. “This series only makes me happy. I feel very loved and understood. And happy because voices that have not been heard for many years, are heard ”, he confessed. Jordi Évole, for his part, he said he was going to pick up the Pau Donés award. Because he felt it that way: “It is a recognition of Pau himself, because in ‘That you give me’ I only accompanied him,” said the journalist, for whom this is his fifth Ondas.

Instead, for Carles Porta, presenter of ‘Crims’, in Catalunya Ràdio, this is the first. And highly anticipated: “All my life dreaming of having an Ondas, which is one of the highest awards in communication, and above all it comes to me with a project in which many people are involved, in Catalunya Ràdio and in Catalan”, he valued. Vicky Luengo was also happy to receive his award for ‘Anti-riot’ in his hometown. “A surprise and happy to receive it in Barcelona”, he confessed. Alvaro MorteFor his part, he seemed as elusive as that Professor of ‘The Money Heist‘that Ondas has earned him, since his hair was not seen. But the reason was very different from that of his famous character.
The nicest singer
Pablo Lopez I know has carried a Waves to the musical phenomenon of the year, and another, unofficial, to one of the most sympathetic singers in the history of the Ondas, because from minute 1 he mixed with journalists and talked and joked with everyone. “Upon learning of the award, I had a moment of disbelief, which is in my DNA, but I feel honored. And it is an award shared with the people who have made the 80 concerts possible ”, he said. Aitana, who shares that award with him, has been more protected from the press, but when he has approached her, he has shown that those four years of success have not gone to his head: “I do not feel more than anyone else because I am not. ”, He assured, while acknowledging that he had” freaked out “with the award. And that in a few days has also received a Mtv and an Elle award. “But I have to work hard, because things don’t work out by themselves,” he warned.
Representatives of the other edition
Among the winners of the 2020 gala were Jedet and Daniela Santiago, which showed their happiness, clouded by the announcement of their co-star of ‘Poison’, Isabel Torres placeholder image, that the lung cancer he suffers only gives him two months to live. “I’m sad about that,” Jedet said with tears streaming down her eyes. He will dedicate the award to her tonight at the gala, but also to the ‘trans’ community to which she belongs. “The Javis have changed my life and ‘Veneno’ has changed many lives, because it gives a necessary message when the extreme right is gaining strength,” he said.
