The journalist replaces José Luis Prusén, who is leaving the company after 20 years at the helm of the newspaper’s newsroom
The journalist Teresa Cobo de la Hera (Bilbao, 1967), until now deputy director of El Diario Montañés, will become the first woman to direct Diario La Rioja in its 134-year history from 1 February. Cobo succeeds José Luis Prusén, who is reaching the pinnacle of a career spanning more than four decades of professional dedication to journalism, the last two of which were in charge of the newspaper’s newsroom.
Teresa Cobo, a Journalism graduate and a Masters in Journalism from El Correo-UPV, comes to Diario La Rioja after a long professional career, fully developed at Vocento, which started at the Hoy de Extremadura newspaper. Subsequently, Cobo de la Hera joined the staff of the newspaper La Verdad, where she held various positions until she became director of the newspaper’s delegation in Alicante.
After going through La Verdad, Cobo joined El Diario Montañés in 2008 as editor-in-chief and later became vice president. In the Cantabrian capital, in addition to day-to-day information management, he coordinated numerous editorial projects and paid special attention to the introduction of new forms of multimedia teamwork. The new director of La Rioja is also the author of three books.
José Luis Prusén (1959) leaves the company after leading the editorial team for twenty years. A graduate of Information Sciences from the University of Navarra, Prusén also attended ICADE’s Senior Management Program. Before joining La Rioja newspaper as deputy editor in 1999, he had spent most of his professional career in León, where his positions included director of La Crónica de León and press officer for the Provincial Council. In August 2003, José Luis Prusén took over from José María Esteban as head of the Diario LA RIOJA.
