And it is that Ana Rosa has two faces. The first, and best known, is that of a successful presenter who It has been the leader in television morning audiences for more than a decade. A journalist who gets up every day at six to take charge of her own space, one of the most recognizable on Spanish television.

But he has a face unknown to the general public, that of a businesswoman with a great nose for businesswith a considerable net worth, a handful of companies and investments in different businesses even beyond the world of television.

But none of this economic success would have been possible without his professional success. To assess this impact, just one detail. This week he has returned to his program after the holidays, marking a 20% share and retaking the leadership from the first day. Not even the interview with the President of the Government on Monday in the new mornings of La 1 could overshadow him. Sánchez only obtained a 7% share and Ana Rosa approached 20%.
