An adventure that would change TV news and information. Cristina Parodi, the journalist who hosted the first edition of Tg5 at 1pm, on January 13, 1992, thus remembers talking with AdnKronos, the emotion that accompanied the launch of the Mediaset newscast. “It seems incredible that thirty years have passed since that day – he says – but I remember perfectly all the emotion and enthusiasm we had. We were all aware that we were starting an adventure in the world of information that would change the TV news. And so it was “. “The first private television news program that was created to be the direct competitor of state TV information – explains Parodi – was something that changed the face of information. We were all very young, we were led by Enrico Mentana who was full of ideas. With his new language, with the image he gave us and with the speed with which he wanted to characterize this new news program he really gave a turning point. I have a beautiful memory of that day in particular because I was the one who inaugurated the first edition of the Tg at 1pm on January 13, 1992. And all those exciting years of very tiring work. We worked a lot, we all did everything. But always with great determination and enthusiasm “. Compared to state TV, remembers Parodi , that of Tg5 “was a completely different language and way of informing. We were aware that we were doing something special in the way we addressed the viewer, in the language of services. Back then we did a lot of news and we were very fast on the facts. The political services were totally different from those that used a little bit of the politicese of the institutional news. We didn’t use the hunchback, we were more conversational with the viewers “, he concludes.
