The iconic television presenter María Teresa Campos died this morning at the Jiménez Díaz Foundation Hospital, a clinic where she was admitted on September 3 due to acute respiratory failure.
The hospital reported yesterday on Campos' situation and revealed that it had worsened and, after a fateful night, his family confirmed first thing in the morning that the presenter of programs such as Día a día or Qué tiempo tan feliz had left us to always.
Throughout the morning, different public figures from the world of television, acting, politics, etc. They have approached the La Paz funeral home, located in the town of Tres Cantos, in Madrid, to say their last goodbye to the communicator and present their condolences to the family.
One of the people who have come to offer their condolences to the former collaborators of Sálvame has been Ana Rosa Quintana, who has not hesitated when it came to meeting the press at the funeral home door and dedicating some nice words to the deceased.
''As soon as we heard the news we took the car and we came. She is the first queen of the mornings and the one who has opened the way for many others. One of the greats. The fastest woman I've ever met '', she has pronounced emotionally before the watchful eye of dozens of journalists.
The former presenter of The Ana Rosa Program, who will soon begin a new adventure and a new program in the afternoons of Telecinco, has taken advantage of the moment to talk about the historical rivalry between the two: ''We have had our loves and our rivalries , but we have always been loyal.'' As she said yesterday at the presentation of TardeAR, María Teresa Campos considers her new project to be ''one of the greats''.
María Teresa Campos came to the small screen to turn it upside down. With her talkative attitude and her strong character, the one from Malaga connected with the public and showed that television was for everyone, not just for men and for "tall, thin and beautiful" women.
In addition to carrying feminism as her flag and being characterized by her speed and the ease with which she put together the points of the interviews, María Teresa Campos was a pioneer in one of the formats that is most seen today on TV: magazines . Although it has been years since she has had her own program, Alejandra Rubio's grandmother 'walked' so that presenters of our time can 'run' and develop professionally in this type of spaces.
