Before the creation of Aztec TV, Imevisión It was the cradle that housed different sports commentators, all under the formation of Jose Ramon Fernandez. As time went by, the current Ajusco television station obtained spaces to empower the reporters and commentators who came to the sports project.

So it happened with Francisco Javier Gonzalez, current editorial director of TUDN. In an interview with Javier Alarcón for his YouTube program Between comrades, Francisco told how working with Joserra influenced his professional training, because when he joined the team of The protagonists, Javier González was barely over 20 years old.

“I recently did the exercise of the 50 most important people in my life and obviously he (José Ramón Fernández) is among them”

He explained that the way of working of Joserra it is very dynamic and demanding. He became the team leader who knew how to direct the direction of the section despite the various conflicts it experienced when the television station was still Imevisión.

One of the qualities that Francisco Javier recognized and that he learned from José Ramón was his way of leading a group and in the commentator’s own words TUDN explained that to Fernández It was learned by “imitating” it.

“He was a leader that you learned by imitation. José Ramón didn’t take you by the hand to do calligraphy, he didn’t. But you saw how he prepared, studied, became passionate, how he was a leader, how he handled meetings “

The time that Francisco Javier González lived was divided into two, the first in Imevisión since it entered the year 1985, and the second when the television station was privatized and became Aztec TV. From what you saw how is that Joserra overcame conflicts of interest on state television.

Many times his enemy was at home, his enemy was in that director of Imevisión which he was using as a political platform for what was to follow. When it is privatized there is a full stop in all that, but many Sometimes José Ramón fought deeper with areas that did not understand what sports were”, He explained.

“He had a hatred for Televisa that many of us did not share. When he greeted, he shook hands, a hug with everyone. José Ramón could not bear to be greeted. I told:’ You are going to have to put up with it because I get along well with everyone‘I had that row. But what about José Ramón was authentic ”, added Javier González.
