Adriana Duran Leaving Teletica After 18 Years

The journalist and sportscaster will be joining the Costa Rican Soccer Federation

After 18 years of an uninterrupted carrer at Teletica, the charismatic Adriana Duran is leaving the La Sabana based television station.

The journalist, originally from Cartago, resigned on Monday. She will finish the week doing her sports news reports, but come next Monday, she will assume a position at the Federación Costarricense de Fútbol (Fedefútbol) – Costa Rican Soccer Federation – in the area of corporate image and public relations.

Adriana Duran has been the face of sports at the La Sabana television station since 2016, and the first woman to cover soccer games from the playing field

Fedefútbol president Rodolfo Villalobos confirmed the addition of Adrian to the organization that is getting ready for its second consecutive World Cup presentation, said, “Adriana will be joining January 22 the department of corporate image, public relations and protocol, as well as social responsibility and protocol programs.”

For his part, Jorge Martinez, Director of Teletica Sports, said on Twitter “With much regret, for whom we love and admire, but with equal joy, for the new work challenge that she will face. We will miss her very much, but we wish her the best in her new adventure.”

After years of work in morning program Buen Día, Adriana assumed in 2016 a position in Teletica Deportes and was the television station’s face on sports, breaking the stereotype of a man presenting sports.

Although for some it was seen as an odd move, from a morning variety and talk show to sports, Adriana began her career in sports, being the first woman to cover soccer from the playing field. In addition, Adriana has worked in radio.

A few weeks ago she launched her latest project, a blog called “Entre vos y yo” (between you and I), sharing her life experiences about work, children, family and how to survive.

On Sunday, January 21, Adriana celebrates her 48th birthday.

Replacing Adriana at Teletica Deportes (Sports) will be Melissa Alvarado from at ExtraDeportes.
