The Grupo Octubre chose Pergolini to lead the project due to its extensive experience in media management and administration, in addition to his participation as a host and presenter of legendary radio and television programs. In this way, it was arranged that the animator and audiovisual producer be the head of one of the research teams.
This incorporation, however, added rejections from the vast majority of the Twitter users, that as soon as the news broke they were not long in targeting Pergolini, who was questioned having associated with Santa Maria, a politician, businessman, trade unionist and sports leader, who serves as general secretary of the Single Union of Rent and Horizontal Building Workers and chairs the Justicialist Party porteño.
For its part, Migue Granados, who hosted “Últimos Cartuchos” for four seasons with Martín Garabal, He also attacked Pergolini although later, perhaps regretful, he deleted the post. His questioning pointed to the three months’ salary that, according to him, he was owed by the former driver of “Which?” of Rock & Pop.
