What my CNN colleagues say about me.
Teresa is a dynamic, hard- working, determined and highly experienced producer with a good eye for telling stories. While working very effectively within the boundaries of a highly structured news machine, she is never afraid to make her own judgements and apply them. That said, she is good at taking advice and using feedback to improve her work. She is a pleasure to work with.”
Charles Hodson, Business Anchor, CNN International.
“Working with Teresa means working with a real professional. She is editorially sound, extraordinarily creative and anchoring shows produced by her inspires confidence. Teresa field experiences are crucial in informing the story selection and understanding the fine nuances of complex but significant stories CNN covers.”
Zain Verjee, Anchor, CNN International.
Owen Thomas, Presenter, Bloomberg Television.
“Teresa is a very focused well rounded television producer, who is involved in every aspect of the programmes. She has always shown a staunch commitment to service the CNN audience’s needs. Teresa’s multicultural professional background positions her at the top in this competitive journalism world.”
Guillermo Arduino, Anchor, CNN en Español and CNN
“I have the best memories from the time I worked with Teresa. She’s always had a vast knowledge of international stories, a good editorial judgement and the ability to look at stories in an analytical way. Her passion for journalism is inspiring. Teresa is also very organised and has a commendable ability to adapt to changing and stressful situations characteristic of our job. Whoever works with Teresa will find in her an experienced, committed, responsible and enthusiastic professional.
Patricia Janiot, Anchor, CNN en Español.
“Teresa is an outstanding journalist, the best I’d known. She was the key person in the production and the success of the documentary we did at CNN on the Missing (Desaparecidos) people in Latin America. The film won the duPont Award from Columbia University in New York for excellence in investigative reporting”,
Jorge Gestoso, CNN en Español anchor for 16 years.
“Teresa is a very well organised and creative producer. She is always able to take the extra mile for fare, balanced and compelling stories. During the years we worked together at CNN Teresa put special care in the flow of her shows with stories the audience wanted to know about. It was a great experience to work with Teresa.”
Daniel Viotto, CNN en Español Anchor for 14 years.
“Teresa is a hard-working self-starter who invariably understands exactly what a project is all about from the outset, and how to get it done quickly and effectively. During her tenure at CNN, I cannot remember an instance in which she missed handling the coverage of a story in a rapid, effective, and calmly manner. Teresa is a resourceful, creative, and solution- oriented person who was frequently able to come up with new and innovative approaches to handling different situations in a newsroom. She will function extremely well as a team leader when required, and she also worked effectively as a team member under the direction of other team leaders. Her bilingual and multicultural background make her a great asset to the World News Network (CNN).”
