Elia Rodriguez has left us. A great loss for journalism and for Spain. She was smart, cultured, and funny. She loved and knew Spain and her programs were lessons in wisdom. D.E.P
Elías Rodríguez Varela (Terrabada, Lugo, Spain; January 1, 1937) was a Spanish journalist and businessman who had one of the most used voices in Spanish advertising. He is considered one of the best storytellers and publicity communicators in his country.
Elia Rodríguez presented us with all the suggestions for leisure, entertainment and free time to enjoy culture: theater, music, literature, psychology, philosophy, history, gastronomy, travel, mystery, health … A mixed bag for all audiences and with the testimonies and interviews with the real protagonists.
In 1958 he joined the Youth Radio and in 1963 to the National Radio. In 1968 he became the founder and broadcast director of Radio Centro, and he is already a very important professional in advertising dubbing. In 1981 he founded the Communication Center, and in 1989 he founded Estudios Abaira, S.A., a company dedicated to advertising, dubbing and sound. He served as President of Grupo Abaira (Estudios Abaira, Abaira Publicidad, Matinha Estudios de Son de Portugal, Abrente Soluciones Audiovisuales and Línea de Fuego) and Vice President of Grupo Bosques Naturales (Bosques Naturales, Forestalia, Boscalia, Eurobosques, Adagro) Various companies. As an actor, in addition to speaking on behalf of countless people as a narrator, he also participated in a movie. He also stood out as a presenter, for example at the Gran Casino de la Televisión de Galicia.
The 33-year-old Elia Rodríguez from Segovia graduated in Information Sciences and received the end-of-degree award, as well as the master’s degree in Institutional and Political Communication from Carlos III of Madrid. She is now well known in the program “Libros con uasabi” by Sánchez Dragó, in which she becomes a dialogue partner with two other women, Ayanta Barilli and Anna Grau. Her career is closely related to broadcasting: on weekends she is the presenter of esRadio’s morning magazine “La Mañana del Fin de Semana”. In the same station – this is a novelty here – on Sunday night “esToros” offers a bullfighting program from 24 hours to 1 in the afternoon.
