friendship between Jose Luis Repenning Y Priscilla Vargas is the best example that good relationships go beyond gender. In the episode of “Socios de la parrilla” this Thursday, the drivers of the morning “Your day” on Channel 13 shared intimate details of their 20-year friendship.
It all began in the year 2000 when, as practitioners, they were brought together for a New Year’s broadcast, José Luis on Mega and Priscilla on Canal 13. “He strutted around. He had made his first mobile live for the central news program. He greeted me and All she wanted was to tell me that she had made her first mobile, she hadn’t told anyone until that minute,” Priscilla recalled with a smile on her face.
Since then, they have lived unforgettable moments together, such as when Priscilla had her first daughter after a film in José Luis’s apartment or when they both suffered a fall on a motorcycle.
But, without a doubt, the most beautiful television moment they have experienced together was the broadcast of the rescue of the 33 miners, on October 13, 2010. “It was the first time that Chile was the epicenter of world news, and good news” Priscilla expressed with emotion.
However, not everything has been rosy in their friendship. Priscilla recalled the moment when she decided to leave Mega to host “Aquí somos todos” on Channel 13. “For me it was a decision that I made in a very short time. I really liked the project, it was to go from just delivering information to a program that full of energy and gives meaning to what you studied,” she said. And, without a doubt, José Luis was the first to support her in this change.
The question that arose afterwards was whether there really is a friendship between a man and a woman. Priscilla indicated that she has a female friend, and the rest are all men, while José Luis explained that he left a men’s school and his family is only men. “For me the naturalness of the friendship of having a female friend was not something strange,” he expressed matter-of-factly.

She is one of my best friends and I love her very much, ”she assured.
As the talk progressed, the friends shared some fun moments from their 20-year friendship. Another anecdote about this duo was told by Repenning: it was that the birth of Priscilla’s first daughter almost happened while taxiing with him. “I had just gotten married and the inauguration of the department was coming. And Priscilla was pregnant and she told me ‘You have to invite me to ride to your house before the baby is born.’ She felt that a cheese that was there had gone bad, she went home, her wadding hurt. She was in labor, the bus almost had her in the elevator, ”the journalist recalled.
They also talked about a motorcycle crash together, where José Luis hurt his knee and Priscilla broke her arm. “It was a difficult situation, but we were together through it all and helped each other recover,” Priscilla recalled.
