Early life

At an early age she realized she loved entertaining people, she would mimic Libertad Lamarque, a famous Argentine tango vocalist, and she would passionately recite poems by García Lorca, her favorite writer and one of the most influential Spanish writers of all time.

She studied Communications at the University of Buenos Aires, thinking that she would be able to showcase her many talents through this career. At age 18, she began working in a local TV show called Domingo Total (Total Sunday), which was broadcast live every weekend. She also worked as an entertainment reporter for the show De Boca en Boca (From Mouth to Mouth) at ATC Television and collaborated as host for the very popular game show El Juego de la Oca (Snakes and Ladders) on Channel 13 in Argentina. For two years she anchored a show focused on women’s issues, current events and celebrity interviews on ‘Utilísima Satelital,’ also in Argentina.


In 1999, Ferro traveled to the United States with the aspiration of becoming a journalist and a TV presenter. And in the year 2000, Candela’s life took a spectacular turn for the best, when she was approached by Telemundo to work as a writer, producer and presenter for the network. Since joining Telemundo, now part of the NBC family, Candela has had the honor of hosting the Latin Billboard Music Awards in 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2006, an event that is watched by millions of viewers throughout the world. She hosted for 4 consecutive years the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for Telemundo (simulcast by NBC) and the Miss Universe Pageant from Panama in 2003, from Ecuador in 2004, Thailand in 2005, Los Angeles in 2006 and from Mexico in 2007.

In 2002, Candela presented the INTE Awards (Spanish Television Industry Awards) in Miami, the Golden Globe Awards in Spanish and the Red Carpet pre-show to the Tribute to Celia Cruz.

In 2003, she was nominated as Best Female Presenter of the Year in the INTE Awards.

In 2004, she hosted the Hispanic Heritage Awards and has been the host of Premio de la Gente in Los Angeles three times.

In 2005 she hosted the live special of the Wedding of Charles and Camila for E! Entertainment Latin America. As part as her collaborations with the cable network, she recently interviewed Ricky Martin in the special entitled “Ricky Martin en Candela.”

Since October 13, 2007, Candela has been host of the new weekend edition of Telemundo's Al Rojo Vivo called Al Rojo Vivo: Fin de Semana con Candela Ferro.
