Myrka Dellanos went to the University of Miami, from where she graduated with a BA degree in journalism in 1986. She started her journalistic career in 1992 as a co-host of “Primer Impacto”, under an American Spanish-language broadcast television network called Univision. The news program focuses on stories that are not usually covered on the evening news; Dellanos worked there until 2004. The success of the show and its popularity increased her net worth significantly; reportedly, Dellanos had a $3 million annual salary while at Univision.

In 2000, Dellanos appeared in TV movie “Salud! A Guide to Good Health for Latinos”, and in 2001, the Direct Marketing Association of America named her the Hispanic of the Year. In the mid-2000’s, Dellanos played in numerous Latino movies, and also in five episodes of a daily celebrity gossip news show in Spanish called “El gordo y la flaca” (2004), and thanks to the readers of the magazine “People en Español”, Myrka was named a ‘Star of the Year’ in the same year. Then President George W. Bush appointed her to the Freedom Corps, a group of 25 who work to promote charitable giving. Also in the prolific 2004 for Myrka, she hosted celebrations of Hispanic Heritage Month at the White House.

In 2006, Dellanos served as a guest co-host of “The View”, a panel of four regular women discussing everyday issues, sharing their opinions and engaging in interesting conversations on a variety of topics. After an 8-year absence from broadcast journalism, Myrka returned to television in 2013 as a contributor and host for the American-based Hispanic network Estrella TV and also its news-magazine “En la Mira con Enrique Gratas”. Her net worth was still rising.

Additionally, Dellanos has published several notable books including “Succeed and Be Happy: Things I Learned Thanks to God”, “My Mom”, and “Life”, which have also contributed to her net worth.

Regarding her personal life, Myrka Dellanos was married to Dr. Alejandro Loynáz from 1991 to 1998 and has a daughter named Alexa Carolina with him. She then married David Matthews in 2000, but the marriage lasted for only two years. From 2004 to 2006, Dellanos dated popular Mexican singer Luis Miguel, but later she married pharmaceutical representative Ulyses Daniel Alonso in 2008, although that marriage lasted for less than a year before and the couple divorced, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason. She is an accomplished pianist and ballet dancer and is active in charitable work.
