Javier Capitán Narvión
TV presenter, comedian and master of ceremonies
La jerarquía sólo puede ejercerse desde el respeto ganado y no desde la imposición de una visión de las cosas
Javier Capitán Narvión quit his job at Repsol as marketing manager and decided to try his luck in the media as a radio presenter. It turned out he had quite a knack for it. The listeners of the Spanish radio company SER became rapidly acquainted to his voice, or perhaps we should say his voices, as he impersonated several celebrities. He later changed to RNE (the Spanish public radio), where he continued his career with renewed success.
However, it was in 1998 that his career would really take off with El Informal, a sarcastic 30 minute television airing during prime time on Tele 5. The program achieved a staggering 20% audience share, being second only to the main news program: RTVE’s Telediario. The format was very similar to his radio contributions, but allowed the audience see his peculiar face and honest smile. Capitán, along with Florentino Fernández, treated political, social and sport news with a handful of humour and a big dose of imagination. The program was such a success that they captivated the audience and, in 2001, they received the Ondas Award.
Prestigious companies such as Banesto, Deloitte, Océ or Larios have counted on him as a presenter for their annual conventions. His intelligence, versatility and sense of humor make him great choice. This journalist has a long career behind him and has given many conferences combining humor and information with fantastic results.
