“I am very grateful for the almost 25 years I spent as a reporter and editor for La Opinión. It was a great place to work for me, I got to do what I loved and be challenged every day to do even more of it,” Pilar tells Media Moves.
“I feel like I’m leaving a part of my family behind but I am ready for the new challenge ahead. For me, being in communications and journalism is always about serving the larger public and I will always feel that way.”
Pilar began her journalism career in the United States as a reporter for La Opinión in 1990. She is currently senior political reporter.
A prolific television commentator, in 2012, Pilar released her first book, “El Despertar del Sueño Americano” (also published in English as Killing the American Dream), which covers the last 25 years of U.S. immigration policy.
