"She has led Clarín since 1969, after the demise of her husband and founder of the newspaper, Roberto Noble. She has continued with his work for over three decades now, keeping alive the newspaper's original spirit. During this period, Clarín has become the newspaper with the largest circulation in the Spanish-speaking world and has expanded into other communication areas resulting in the creation of Grupo Clarín, which is also comprised of Canal Trece, Radio Mitre and other major media companies.

"Mrs. Ernestina Herrera de Noble chairs the Noble Foundation, an institution whereby Grupo Clarín carries out community activities. The Noble Foundation promoted the Postgraduate Course in Journalism that has been delivered at the newspaper for over 20 years now, and the first Spanish-speaking program on the “Use of the Media in Education.” This project was recognized with several international awards and offers free workshops that have been attended by more than 120,000 teachers.

"She is author of the books "Compromiso con el país" (1980) and "La Argentina Necesaria" (1989), and member of several institutions, such as, the International Press Institute and the World Association of Newspapers.

"Since 1997 she has been one of the two Latin-American representatives of the UNESCO’s Advisory Committee for Freedom of the Press, which, among other activities, every year serves as jury for the "Guillermo Cano International Prize.” Since 1998, she has been a member of the New York-based International Council of the Museum of Television and Radio.

"She has been recognized for her track record by the governments of France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Brazil, Chile, and Peru. In 1995, she was the first editor recognized by the World Association of Newspapers (WAN) with the "Editorial Achievement Award.”" [1]
