Miquel Calçada (Catalan pronunciation: [miˈkɛɫ kəɫˈsaðə]) (born August 13, 1965 in Sabadell, near Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain) is a Catalan journalist and communicating entrepreneur.

Career

At age 15, he started participating in a local radio show (Ràdio Terrassa). At 18, he became the voice that announced the return of the Catalan Public Radio (Catalunya Ràdio) since the Spanish Civil War. He is a content producer and talk show host. On TV3 his Mikimoto Club aired daily was a talk show. When the show went on prime time and live he was the very first talk show in Spanish TV. Persones humanes became known for its ironic sometimes absurd but always incisive humour on different issues. A whole generation remember his speeches as well as legendary appearances from the writer Quim Monzó. He quit TV during seven years focusing on its two recent born radio stations, Flaix FM and Ràdio Flaixbac, set among the three most tuned into musical stations. Resuming his TV career on 2003 has achieved greatest audience figures and recognition during five seasons with Afers exteriors, a sociological TV project that led him travel on around 60 countries introducing expatriates life to its audience.

As an independent producer won the bid from the Catalan Government to produce a series of 70 chapters on environmental issues: El capità Enciam. After quitting smoking in 2005, he was so impressed by the method he used that he created the two-part special program El mètode Larson.

Devoted to public issues and history, he has been writing as a free columnist in newspapers such as La Vanguardia and Avui. He is a founder member of Club Riva de Catalunya from the Riva Historical Society.

Calçada currently holds a Executive Master Public Administration degree at Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
