I am a big fan of Pedro Andrade, an anchor of Fusion Live TV, who was born in Rio de Janeiro and has a real carioca style, even though he lives in United States for a long time. He is very smart and a multi-talented journalist, model, lecturer, speaker, writer, television host and not to mention a very handsome and charming man! In Brazil, he is part of a team of ‘wild’ and very respectful journalists in a TV show called “Manhattan Connection”, exhibited weekly on Globo News Channel. In the program he comments about culture, art, movies and gives tips of some U.S. cities, specially New York.
As he lived for a long time in NY (now he is living in Miami, if I am not mistaken) and knows each spot of the Big Apple, such as great restaurants, he transformed his local experience in a travel guide that became a best-seller in brazilian market. He also has a blog and there you can know more about him and his projects >>> www.pedroandradetv.com
