Jorge Ramos, a popular and well-respected sports journalist known as ‘the historic voice of Malaga sport’ has died after he suffered what has been reported as a ‘sudden heart attack’ while covering a press conference in Antequera.
Spanning a four-decade-long career, Ramos, 60, covered news of the ‘blue and white club’ and Unicaja, and was the voice of Malaga on Cadena SER for several years. In recent years Ramos worked at 101 TV and collaborated with Spanish media source AS for many seasons.
AS reported last Tuesday, that despite the efforts of health professionals nothing could be done to revive him.
Ramos was described by AS as “A good companion, charismatic and with very special people skills,” adding that he “leaves behind a great journalistic legacy, a multitude of experiences and anecdotes but, above all, the affection and respect of those who had him as a companion.”
Among the outpouring of tributes and condolences 101 TV in a tweet, last Tuesday expressed their deep regret and sincerest condolences to all his family and friends.
There were also tributes from Ramos’s former AS colleagues saying, “AS’s family joins in showing condolences to his family and friends.”
Joining the tributes, Malaga CF also paid their respects to Ramos.
Malaga CF tweeted, “The white and blue sky from today has a new star. Rest in peace, friend.”
