BiographyEdit

Born in Barcelona on 14 March 1978.[1] After earning a licentiate degree in Journalism from the University of Barcelona, she started working for the public radio broadcaster Radio Nacional de España (RNE) in 1999,[2] as editor in Ràdio 4.[3] After a brief spell in the Catalan public radio broadcaster Catalunya Ràdio as producer of El matí, she returned to RNE in 2003.[4]

She entered TVE's newscast service in 2005.[2] She became the anchor of the weekend edition of the Telediario in 2006 and co-hosted Informe Semanal from 2007 to 2009.[5] She joined the political debate program 59 segundos [es] in 2009 (she had already hosted its Catalan-language equivalent 59 segons in the TV blocks of the Spanish public broadcaster in Catalonia).[6] After the latter Globomedia-produced program was axed because of its costs in 2012, Casado briefly continued as host of its successor El debate de La 1 [es],[7] as she soon became the presenter of the breakfast television news program Los Desayunos de TVE in that year, replacing Ana Pastor.[5][3] She left Los Desayunos in 2016 to replace Mariló Montero as host of the morning television show La Mañana.[8] She became the chairwoman of the Spain's Academia de las Ciencias y las Artes de Televisión [es] in 2018.[1][9] In 2020, after 4 years hosting La Mañana, she was replaced by the meteorologist Mònica López as presenter of the show, which was renamed as La Hora de La 1.[10][11] She subsequently left TVE and joined Antonio Banderas' Málaga-based production company Soho TV.[12][9]

In 2020, Casado was the presenter on the Banderas-directed music web television series Escena en blanco y negro, released on Prime Video.[13] On 6 March 2021, Casado and Banderas will direct and host the 35th Goya Awards ceremony.[14]
