The world of sports journalism is in mourning. This Sunday the news came to light that Pepe Domingo Castaño, one of the most recognizable voices on sports radio, has died suddenly at the age of 80, as announced by Tiempo de Juego, the program in which he worked. . The death of the announcer leaves an immense void in his listeners and colleagues, but also in his family, especially his wife, Teresa Vega, mother of his two children.
The announcer died this Sunday morning at the Zarzuela Hospital in Madrid, surrounded by all his loved ones. As it was later learned, a digestive infection was complicated by septicemia and the announcer could not overcome it. There are many well-known faces who have wanted to send messages of affection to the journalist and his family, among them, the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, or some athletes such as Fernando Alonso or Rafa Nadal, among others.
There are many people who are deeply shocked after the death of the announcer, but especially those closest to him. It will be an especially hard moment for María Teresa, mother of her two children and grandmother of her grandchildren. Her love story is one of those that leaves everyone who listens to it with a full heart. And, despite everything, both have been together and united until the end.
The Game Time presenter has left his entire family in grief. The renowned communicator was married between 1969 and 1981 with the presenter María Luisa Seco, who died in 1988, but the woman of his life, whom he called his "eternal girlfriend" was María Teresa Vega, whom he married in 1985 and with the one who had two children. They both met after she arrived from work in Milan. They were married for 37 years and formed a family of which they were very proud, seeing their two children born together.
Pepe Domingo will be remembered as one of the voices of Spanish sports radio. During his professional career, he achieved numerous recognitions, such as four Ondas Awards, two Golden Antennas, a Golden Microphone, the Joaquín Prat Award or the National Sports Award. A track record that few communicators can boast of and that demonstrates his good work in front of the microphone and how loved and valued he was in the world of communication.
"It is a sad day, a very difficult moment for the entire radio. It has been a very hard night. He was our spiritual leader, without a doubt. But we can rest assured because he has lived life a lot and very well. Every time he feels with friends at a table with friends for dinner, I will remember him. He was always organizing lunches, dinners and celebrations. He was a proud and happy grandfather and a complicit husband," said Juanma Castaño, Pepe Domingo Castaño's partner on his program. Without a doubt, this Sunday will be a very sad and emotional day.
