—Pame is my friend, what’s more, she’s one of the first people I told and asked for an opinion. She told me ‘don’t hesitate’ and she was very happy. She told me ‘you have worked for it, you deserve it, you have achieved it on your own; Don’t mess around, recognize that it has been your merit’.
—And with Magaly?
-Not. Friendship is a very big word. We have been companions under the same house. I appreciate him, I respect him. I have interviewed her several times on the channel, at her house. And it has always been ‘hello, hello, how are you, and that’s it’.
—What do you think of the pronouncement of some artists in the middle of the demonstrations?
—The artists are Peruvian, they are people. They have a position, they have a policy. Sometimes we believe that because they are artists they do not have the right to comment. No, first of all, you are a citizen, and they don’t do politics all the time. Or they also say ‘journalists can’t dance’. No. The journalist is also a human being. They are labels and you have to remove them.

– Do you care much about the rating? —Yes, I care, but it doesn’t make me lose sleep, because I know that this is being built. We are building it. Successes are not born from one moment to another. In the morning, with Ali, we started from scratch, which beat the newscast here (Latina) many times, which scratched the newscast of América Televisión, and also passed over other spaces. The rating is built, and in a responsible manner, without disrespecting anyone, without lacking professional ethics, without doing everything for the rating.
—How were you received in Latina? They even made you dance on your first day
—The reception was very warm. He was very nervous because he had to come down the stairs. I said ‘I’m not going to fall for it’, but they put on music, one of my favorite songs from Grupo 5. I like cumbia, my family does too, and I let go. This public of “Arriba mi gente” also needs to smile for a moment.

—What do you expect from “Up my people”?
—I hope to compete with my colleagues, with my team, add and make it an alternative to what already exists, a different alternative to “América hoy”, to “Préndete”, an alternative where there is truthful, well-managed, well-grounded information. , for that supported by the tremendous platform that Latina has, but also with a quota of entertainment, of relaxation. Not everything has to be drama.
Have you worked with any of your colleagues before?
—I coincided a lot with Mathías, each one with his own profile. Mathías always with the funny note of him. He put the funny quota in the program, the trips, the human notes too, and then he left to be a conductor. I stayed doing reports and doing my thing. And now this is presented (“Up my people”), and I did not look for it, I did not knock on Latina’s door. They called me, and I said ‘it’s an option’ and I jumped in.
