Carlos Calderón was born in Mexico City, he is fluent in English and Spanish. Carlos studied acting in Los Angeles and Miami and has worked with the most important studios and networks like Sony, USA Networks, Univision and Telemundo. He also holds a bachelor degree in architecture and urban design and is currently exploring another of his passions, art, with the first major solo exhibit of his paintings in Miami.
Carlos is currently
the anchor for Acceso Maximo, his own show where he writes his own opening
stand up routine, interviews personalities and does comedy sketches. He also is
the substitute anchor and reporter for Gordo y Flaca, one of the most
popular gossip shows in the U.S. and the highest ranked show in its
time frame among Latin viewers. Furthermore, he hosts his own national radio
show, El Colmillo, where he tackles every theme from his very particular
point of view. Carlos’ fresh and extroverted personality has gained him, over
the years, the recognition of the audience, who is always entertained by his
witty sense of humor and razor sharp questions while conducting his interviews
and giving his opinion.
In his work one clearly sees how he has brought together the elements that have made his career so successful: sense of humor, professionalism and good looks. He will go to any extreme in order to bring a new side of the news onto public light while taking advantage of his deep understanding of both the American culture and the diverse latin heritage to deliver clean, multicultural and humorous content. He has been part of many of the most important shows in Univision Network as talent and as a producer and writer. In 2001 and 2002, he co-wrote Premio Lo Nuestro, the latest being sent to represent the network in the Emmy Awards in its category.
Carlos Calderón is definitely giving a new face (a happy face) to the news and entertainment business for the Latin community and is eager to conquer other markets with the same positive energy that characterizes his work.
