“When I emigrated to #USA 18 years ago I always had as a goal to be a TV reporter, to travel the world telling stories. It never crossed my mind to aspire to a #EMMY because it was extremely distant from my reality at the time. Today I found on my desk my 2nd nomination/2018”. It was the message that Ecuadorian Galo Arellano posted this Saturday on his Instagram account to announce the news of his nomination in the 39th installment of the News & Documentary Emmy Awards.
“I didn’t win the #EMMY but I’m already on the map,” said the rest of the statement that the journalist had accompanied with a graph of the notification that the National Academy of Television, Arts and Sciences sent him. His participation in Univision’s newscast granted him this second nomination, which was also granted in 2017.
Arellano’s career began in the United States before the attack on the Twin Towers. He started in the First Impact team -Univision from New York. Then the team of Puerto Rican journalist María Celeste Arrarás took him to Telemundo.
