Andreea Violeta Marin (born 22 December 1974 in Roman, Neamţ County) is a Romanian television presenter, and TV personality.[1]

She majored in Journalism, Public Relations & Advertisement, Computer Programming and Mathematics & Physics during her college years.[2] She debuted in 1994 at TVR Iași as emcee.[3]

Her involvement within the Romanian media seems to have directly contributed to her selection as the most successful female media person in the country.[4] On 2 December 2006, Marin Bănică hosted the 2006 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. She also presented the Romanian votes at the 2000, 2004, 2006, and 2007 Eurovision Song Contest finals.

Since 1999, she has hosted and directed Surprize, Surprize ("Surprises, Surprises"), a long-running show about life stories involving disabled people, people without money, and people with relatives gone away, broadcast on TVR1.[5]

Marin is the communications director of Madrid-based Prime Time World Broadcast, and the editorial director of the Romanian version of Business Woman Magazine.[6]

Andrea Banica is also the only Romanian UNICEF Goodwill Ambasador.[7][8]
