The merit of these people and of those who are no longer here, to the previous presenter of Sonsoles, I have already named her, but also to Marc Calderó and others.

How the signing of Sonsoles Ónega by Antena 3 came about
During a visit to ‘El Hormiguero’ by Pablo Motos, Sonsoles Ónega elaborated on his departure from Telecinco, giving all the details and how his new career on another of the most prestigious television networks was developed: “I was wearing a girdle in my Mediaset dressing room. I received a call from a number I did not know and I put the speaker because I thought they were calling me from the children’s camp. It was July 1st. She was with a stylist and we heard that she was the secretary of the CEO of Atresmedia. That day we closed ‘It’s already 8’ and a week later we had a meeting in a hotel. There I met the CEO of Atresmedia, Carlos Fernandez Alonso and He told me 5 words: ‘We have a plan for you'”, the journalist commented.
Although at first it was clear to him, Sonsoles gave himself a period of 48 hours to really decide which chain he was going to choose: “With a lot of heartache, I told my bosses that I was leaving. It’s almost harder than a divorce. They were the two most distressing days of my life. I told Paolo Vasile, whom I thank for the opportunity he gave me because otherwise he would not be here, “he settled.
