Ramón García is a TV host born on November 28, 1961, in Bilbao, Biscay, Spain. He is also known as Ramontxu or Ramonchu in Spain, which in euskera, the language widely spoken in the Basque Country, is a coloquial form of calling a person named "Ramón".

Professional career

His long professional career and his versatility have made Ramon García an indisputable standard in the Spanish media.

His career started in the radio, after entering a DJ contest in Biscay in 1983 and being proclaimed the winner by the Cadena SER (a popular Spanish radio station) managers. He also worked for other famous stations, such as Los 40 Principales and Radio Euskadi.

He then jumped into the TV scene in 1989, having a small role in a Basque channel. Finally, he emerged as a TV star in 1991 when signing for the number one TV station in Spain, TVE.

Hosting very popular TV shows and presenting various radio programmes, his role in the Campanadas every 31 December night for more than a decade made him a well known star in Spain. He has fronted that night every year since he was first chosen to be the host. He has won several prizes in Spain, including 5 TP de Oro, one of the most important Spanish TV prizes.

In 2007 and after 15 years working for TVE, he signed for Antena 3 to host the Spanish version of Are you smarter than a 5th grader?. The announcement of his presence on the Campanadas night for Antena 3 has been a nationwide shock in Spain, as his role on TVE was seen as a Christmas tradition.
