Iconic GIRL To Know: Carolina Bermudez

In Iconic GIRLS on December 23, 2011 at 5:00 pm
A lot of New York City women can talk for four straight hours a day. The truth is, not many people listen – unless you’re Carolina Bermudez. As New York’s number-one female radio personality for nationally syndicated “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show”, she’s the City’s on-air babygirl, a pop-smart icon for a town built around culture. Now, with regular national TV spots as a pop culture expert, she is sitting pretty at the top of the entertainment world. Manhattan may move quickly, but Carolina moves faster – taking the spotlight with her as she goes.
After graduating from Arizona State University, Carolina traveled to Miami for a freelance PR job at the 2003 Latin Billboard Music Awards. At the awards, she secured a huge opportunity for a recent graduate with little experience- a radio internship with “The Baka Boyz,” on Miami’s 103.5 The Beat. Shortly after, she was offered a position on Y100, Miami’s top station, doing entertainment reports and club broadcasts. It was there that Carolina found her “media girl” style, covering fashion and gossip on celebs and sports stars. The station’s ratings reached a peak after she joined the team, with wide audience approval. The station’s program director caught on and made the decision to move her to the morning show, “Kenny & Footy in the Morning,” where she officially came into her own.
Carolina’s signature sexiness and her expert news and advice made her a radio celebrity in Miami and brought her lots of attention. With only a year’s experience, Carolina was offered a job working alongside Elvis Duran on the Z100 morning show, New York’s number one radio show for many years standing. It didn’t take her long to accept. In 2005, she signed her first contract with the station and entered into the country’s largest radio market.
The big move wasn’t without challenges. To accommodate the empty position at Z100, execs slotted Carolina on the news and traffic portion of the morning show – a big change from her in-the-know, media girl persona. But her smart, sassy, and driving attitude wasn’t going to let her idle. Eager to reclaim her natural character, Carolina pitched her own fashion-forward, pop-culture segment called “The Rage Page.” The name spoke for itself – since her pitch, the segment has been one of the hottest radio benchmarks and a staple on the show. That idea also led the NYC television channel, My9, offering Carolina a six-month, on-air segment called “My Hot Picks,” which ran Monday-Friday throughout 2005 and began her jump into television.
In addition to waking up each morning at 4 AM for the morning show, Carolina held a position as a Senior Editor and on-air television correspondent for InTouch Weekly, appearing on channels like CNN, E!, VH1, MTV, and MSNBC to discuss breaking celebrity gossip and entertainment news. She covers everything from Lindsay’s latest mishap to Brangelina’s newest adoption, offering her take on the Hollywood scene. Aside from her professional career, Carolina is an active member for various charities, including Bridges to Community which raises funds for families in need in her parent’s native country, Nicaragua. She also raises money for the Humane Society, breast cancer awareness, multiple sclerosis, autism and works closely as a host with organizations like the David Wright Foundation and the Eric Trump Foundation. You may also hear her guest announcing in Spanish for the NY Mets on their “Fiesta Latina” and “Merengue Nights”. Carolina one day hopes to have her own morning or late night talk show, to bring the same energetic, informed celebrity and fashion news to a national audience.
