His career has been always defined by the launch of journalistic projects in an effort to create new formulas and spaces that have subsequently endured throughout time. He has pioneered radio formats and structures, and designed, directed, and introduced the first morning magazine in Catalan, “El matí de Catalunya Ràdio”, for the Catalunya Ràdio station, where he also served as programming director and authored their schedule design, a structure that is still used nowadays. Ten years later, he traveled to the United States to retrain and study new audiovisual and technological trends.
Upon his return, he faced new professional challenges that prompted a fresh start in other media companies, COM Radio (1995-2000) and Ona Catalana (2000-2003), combined with a series of forays into television.
In 2004, and after more than 20 years in the radio industry, he decided to focus on television, tasked with turning TV3’s morning slots into information reference programming. Inspired by the great morning shows in North America, the new format for TV3’s “Els Matins” was born, turning it into an audience favorite for 7 years.
Cuní, who is a natural maverick, then opted to abandon his comfort zone and start a new project from scratch: “8 al dia”. This was a new informative format for prime time, and it was shortly entrenched as a reference program, bringing in the best audience numbers in the history of Grupo Godó’s television station, 8TV. From his position in the aforementioned channels and programs, he has covered national, international, and autonomous regional elections, and he has traveled all over the world to explain and report on election events, refugee crises, terrorist attempts, and political processes.
Throughout his career, he has earned various distinguished awards, such as “Creu de Sant Jordi” (2017), “Premi Nacional de Comunicació” (2010), the “Premi Quim Regàs” for Journalism (2016), and six Ondas awards, among others.
