(CNN Spanish) — The well-known Mexican presenter Talina Fernández died on Wednesday of leukemia, her son José “Coco” Levy told several local media.
“My mother just continued her journey. You know my mom always went on a journey of love, it was love, she only thought about the good that is in people and that’s how she left, surrounded by all those who love her,” Levy said outside from the hospital in Mexico City, where the presenter died.
Fernández, 78, originally from Mexico City and also known as the “lady of good talk”, was a journalist, producer and television presenter.
The National Association of Interpreters (ANDI) mourned his death. “We send our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” the organization wrote on its social networks.
One of the moments that marked Fernández’s career was in 1994 when he announced the death of then-presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio.
