S í, es el reportero. Do you know who that man is?.. That one? Yes, hes the reporter. Aquella reportera es del canal dos. That reporter is from Channel 2 Aquélla Aquélla es del canal cinco. That one is from Channel 5 *Aquélla replaced the noun reportera* Add an accent to make it a pronoun!

Demonstrative pronouns take the place of a noun: É ste es interesante. This one is interesting. *In order to distinguish the two (adjective or pronoun), you must include a written accent over e. e ---> é
