More importantly, I’m honored to join the incredible all-women tribe whose contributions make an impact and influence the achievements of all the brave women in media.  Working in media is an amazing responsibility because it provides me a platform to share my narrative and do what I love so much – tell stories and connect with the community through my humor and very personal perspective.  I’m blessed to collaborate with my incredibly talented Cali Family who provide a platform for me and my morning crew to do what we love doing most – learn and laugh together!”

Meruelo Media’s CEO, Otto Padron added, “Angie truly does it all; and I mean all!… as her ‘plus one’ with a unique front-row perspective into our shared life, she juggles so much… her Cali 93.9 morning show; a television primetime show on Televisa-Univision; performing in multiple live musicals here and Mexico; then loves cooking, baking, and raising our 2 precious kids at home.  She’s every woman, a mom, daughter, friend, and wife.”  Otto continued, “Angie is a true inspiration, passionate about her Mexican heritage, a tireless creative machine, and fearless about telling stories that uplift women, the human spirit, and family values – So proud of her and very deserving of this AWMF recognition.”  

Angelica is an internationally recognized Mexican actor, comedian, impersonator, radio and television host, and singer. She is the daughter of Mexican entertainer legend, Angelica Maria (aka Mexico’s Sweetheart) and the late Mexican-Venezuelan comedian Raul Vale.
