As for abandoning political journalism issues, the journalist highlighted: “I was always clear that I liked entertainment more and speaking from another place.

On a commercial level, the program also worked very well. But one day I told my partner that we were leaving, and he asked me: “How are we leaving? If it goes well for us ”. And I told him that it no longer gave me satisfaction. My dad (alfredo leuco), ions (Avenue), which makes it spectacular, they have that passion and that drive. I don’t have the motor, and if I don’t have the passion I can’t do it. This is very transparent: it is very noticeable if you are not in the mood, happy, enthusiastic. It seems to me a very toxic environment where I feel that there are fewer and fewer positive things to rescue. And it seemed to me that as a communicator there were other places where I was going to be more fulfilled, but when I made the decision I had no idea what they were”.
