Her landing on radio came from the hand of her friend Cacho Fontana, who added her to his Fontana Show on Radio Rivadavia and his Videoshow on Teleonce. At that time she was working as a mobile worker on Channel 7, when her radio reference “discovered” her.

In recent weeks, he had been absent from his program on Radio Miter due to his health condition. “Together with Miguel and Nicolás Wiñazki, in his last years he was at the helm of ‘Magdalena and the desired news’. Previously, he had hosted ‘Magdalena Tempranísimo’ (1987 – 2006) and had also been part of ‘Lanata Sin Filtro’ in its return to the radio in 2014”, detailed from the station.

Winner of the Konex Brilliant and Platinum awards, it was a active human rights defender. He was a member of CONADEP, which prepared the Never Again report, with the aim of clarifying the events that occurred during the military dictatorship established in Argentina in 1976.

In the interview published in May in Clarion, took a moment to describe the enormous passion that united her with her profession that she embraced since her youth. “journalism is my life. Who cares what year I was born? To nobody. The important thing is what I’m doing, look at Mitre’s measurements, we’re still in the lead. What matters is having a good time. I don’t stop to think how old each one is. Whoever is not satisfied with his age must have a hard time. I am very satisfied, I am over 90, “he said in May.

In the profile published by the Konex Foundation after awarding it, it is highlighted that “in 1980 he was awarded the Polish Order of Merit for his coverage of Pope John Paul II. In 1984 the Republic of France awarded him the Knight of the Order of Merit of France for his defense of human rights and freedom of the press, then in 1994 the Legion of Honor of that same country and the Order of Merit of Italy, both in the rank of Officer”.
