Ecuadorian journalist holding more than 20 years of experience in broadcast journalism and a Master’s degree in Political Management from the George Washington University. Andrea is the anchor of RCN Television’s primetime newscast “Noticias RCN” and recently worked at “La F.M.”, Colombia’s leading radio station, as journalist and political analyst. Andrea has also worked as a correspondent of the Ecuadorian network, Ecuavisa, in Washington, D.C. and currently holds the position of Director of Specialized shows at NTN24. She also directs her own opinion show, “Zoom a la Noticia”.

She has also been a reporter in relevant events worldwide such as the Americas Summit, the U.S. Presidential Election and the inauguration of President Barack Obama. Throughout her career, she has interviewed high-level officials and relevant world figures such as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President of Ecuador Lenin Moreno, former President of Ecuador Rafael Correa, former president of Colombia Andrés Pastrana, former president of Panama Ricardo Martinelli, former president of Paraguay Fernando Lugo, Nobel Laurate Mario Vargas Llosa, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and former IMF President Cristine Lagarde, among others.

She has also featured as moderator in relevant forums and summits worldwide, including the Annual CAF Conference, the UNFPA world report and WEF summits.

For Andrea, journalism has to follow three premises: honesty, accuracy and passion. Without these values, there is no journalism. “To be honest when delivering information, with the only goal of informing the citizens. To be precise in order to avoid mistakes or harm any person’s image. One should always speak passionately and truthfully, since passion is what drives all journalists to question facts, research and be creative”.
