From this anomalous situation, at that moment “Cambiemos” decided to do without the experienced sports journalist, who for several years also disappeared from privileged positions in terms of comments and media prominence in his historical area, that is, soccer.
In recent months, the return to some visibility in professional terms has returned Fernando Niembro to places with greater exposure on radio and TV, commenting on first division matches for ESPN Premium, although not in the most prominent matches or in international cups, such as He will do it for years together with Mariano Closs.
THE PRESENT AND FUTURE OF “DON NIEMBRO”
After the World Cup, the journalist identified with Juntos por el Cambio agreed to participate in the place of Juan Manuel “El Rifle” Varela, who traveled to Qatar, and is temporarily serving as a sports columnist for Eduardo Feinmann, although he is also involved in issues political and economic.
Perhaps the ideological closeness to this communicator, who is already a member of the ranks of La Nación Más as a driver during the afternoons, has helped to announce the arrival of Niembro, but not as a sports specialist, but to take charge of a time slot during the next year.
A few days ago it was learned that the arrival of Viviana Canosa at La Nación forced the channel’s executives to rearm their programming schedule, which brought about significant changes. And despite the fact that the conflict with Alfredo Leuco seemed to have been resolved, the new schedule assigned to him would not finish convincing the journalist from Córdoba who would once again be “repatriated” by Grupo Clarín’s TN signal.
