Catalunya Radio

novinar / Journalist

Ricard Ustrell je radiu predan že od rane mladosti. Pri komaj 13 letih je začel delati na Radiu Sabadell, zdaj pa je že več let novinar katalonskega javnega radia. Sobotni in nedeljski dopoldnevi na radiu so njegovi. Kot voditelj in urednik programa El Suplement (Dodatek) ob koncih tedna izpostavi najbolj aktualne teme tedna. El Suplement je ob vikendih najbolj poslušana oddaja na katalonskih radijih.

Pred nekaj meseci je Ustrell radijskemu ustvarjanju dodal še televizijsko; postal je voditelj aktualnopolitične oddaje Preguntes Freqüents (Pogosta vprašanja), v kateri gosti številne politike in odgovarja na pereča vprašanja gledalcev, ki jih ob zdajšnji politični krizi ne manjka. V zadnjih tednih je v svoji oddaji gostil na primer nekdanjega katalonskega predsednika Arturja Masa in ustanovitelja Wikileaksa Juliana Assangea.

Ustrell, ki je letos izdal tudi svoj prvi roman Sense tu (Brez tebe), v Kataloniji velja za enega izmed najperspektivnejših novinarjev.

 

Ricard Ustrell has been devoted to radio from a very young age – when he was 13 years old he started working for Radio Sabadell. He has spent the last few years working for Catalan public radio. Saturday and Sunday mornings are his slots on Catalunya Radio where he points out hot weekly topics as the presenter and editor of El Suplement programme. It has the highest ratings of all Catalan radio stations during weekends.

Additionally, Ustrell started working for Catalan public television TV3 a few months ago. He is the presenter of the evening politics talks show called Preguntes Freqüents where he interviews politicians and answers viewers’ questions. There are plenty of them in the current politically complicated times in Catalonia. Ustrell recently interviewed former Catalan president Artur Mas and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Ustrell, who also published his first novel Sense tu in 2017, is said to be one of the most promising Catalan journalists.
