Born in Northern California but raised in Hollywood, Gigi Graciette got her first taste of journalism when "La Opinion", Los Angeles' daily Spanish-language newspaper, published her first editorial.
She was only 12 years old.
Gigi's TV career began at the Telemundo Network, where she was a feature and entertainment reporter for two national shows. She then went on to produce and host her own television specials, such as "The Hispanic Family of the Year".
She then moved over to the competition, the Univision Network, where she became the Los Angeles Bureau Chief and Reporter for Sábado Gigante, one of the network's highest-rated programs.
In 1995, it was back to Telemundo for Graciette where she was the Co-creator, Executive Producer and on-camera Host of her own daily talk show "El y Ella".
Off camera, Gigi managed a staff of more than 30 people, working simultaneously in two countries where the show taped: Hollywood and Mexico City. Seen in over 15 countries, "El y Ella" became the highest rated afternoon show for the network.
Fulfilling a personal dream, Gigi Graciette then went to work for Televisa in Mexico City, the largest producer of Spanish language programming in the world.
There she solo-anchored three one-hour newscasts a day for Televisa's cable news network "ECO", seen in over thirty countries.
Graciette also created and executive produced a daily political program called "Eco Expediente" and co-hosted a daily talk radio show for Televisa Radio.
Back in Los Angeles, Gigi Graciette can now be seen nightly on the FOX 11 and MY 13 Newscasts.
She is also the host of "Ella Es Gigi Graciette", a nationally syndicated radio show.
