Carlos Franganillo in conversation with Aurelio Martín

When the News is a Protracted Crisis

Segovia 2020, 

The world of information is always hectic, by nature, but when the news is a protracted crisis like the pandemic whose effects continue to linger, the challenges for information increase. Some professionals have to face the public on a screen day in and day out putting their own credibility on the line. Such is the case of Carlos Franganillo, presenter of Television News 2 of La 1 on Televisión Española. Before becoming the news anchor, he had become a popular face of the state TV station as the correspondent at various international destinations such as Moscow and Washington. During his stint in America he covered the end of Barack Obama's presidency, his official visit to Cuba in 2016 after the restart of relations between Havana and Washington, the 2016 electoral campaign, the victory of Donald Trump and the beginning of the new administration.

He speaks of all this and of the challenges that the Covid-19 crisis has posed for journalists with journalist Aurelio Martín.

In case of rain, the event will take place at the same time inside the Torreón de Lozoya
