Vlasta Jeseničnik

RTV Slovenija

novinarka / Journalist

Dolgoletna RTV dopisnica iz Moskve in dopisnica iz Washingtona. Pravi, da je v tujini že tako dolgo, da domotožja nima več, se pa vedno z veseljem vrne. Poročala je iz Čečenije, kot edina Slovenka je vstopila v ameriško vojaško oporišče Guantanamo na Kubi. Poročala je tudi z bojišč v Afganistanu. Sicer pa politologinja mednarodnih odnosov ter predvsem predana in večkrat nagrajena novinarka, ki zgodbe najde na vsakem koraku. Rada reče, da je novinarski poklic pač specifičen, kamorkoli greš, iščeš v ljudeh, pojavih in dogodkih potencialne zgodbe, nekaj, kar ti spodbudi misel, spomin, ti da idejo, zgodbo. Pogosto se tudi na izletu ali dopustu zaloti, da ni le Vlasta Jeseničnik, temveč novinarka Vlasta Jeseničnik.

 

A long-time correspondent from Moscow and Washington. She likes to say that she has spent so much of her time abroad that she no longer feels homesick, but still likes to return home. She was reporting from Chechnya and was the only Slovene who has set foot in the American military base Guantanamo in Cuba. During her time as a correspondent she was also reporting from the battlefields in Afghanistan. A dedicated and repeatedly awarded journalist, who finds stories at every step of the way. Her formal education includes Political Science – International Relations. She likes to say that journalistic work is specific, because everywhere you go, you’re constantly in search for something that sparks an idea for your story – let it be people, happenings, events or memories. Even while vacationing, she often realises that she is not only Vlasta Jeseničnik but Vlasta Jeseničnik, a journalist.
