Reporter left the station after 35 years; according to him, the coronavirus pandemic was a key part of his decision
Reporter Tino Marcos said on Tuesday, 2, that he will retire after 35 years covering sport in Rede Globo. “Knowing that he would arrive, turn and move, I thought of him: the day he would leave Globo. It should be planned to then be celebrated. And it came that way. With a great feeling, just what I most wanted: gratitude ”, he wrote on his social networks. The reporter started his career at the station in 1985. He spent 30 years covering the Brazilian team and collecting catchphrases. “Galvão”, said the journalist. “Speak, Tino,” replied the narrator. “We lived together experiences that I had never imagined. Globo is my story, my home for almost 35 years. ”
In an interview with Globe Sports, Tino said that the pandemic influenced his decision. The reporter stated that he was at a different pace of work, focusing on big stories and the pandemic “summed up” this type of work a lot. According to him, the distancing took away much of what he liked to do in the profession, such as “capturing, looking at images, writing and producing”. “It is a decisive variable in this process,” he said of the pandemic. “It has now made it impossible for us to do what we have been doing. I don’t know when we will have fullness again. And when are we going back? We don’t know how the world is doing. ” For him, the context also weighed on the decision. With the family forming, the woman retiring and the loss of her parents, Tino decided it was time to stop and stay home.
