Being a news star is certainly in the blood of the young ESPN presenter Antonietta Collins, and like her mother María Antonieta Collins, she knows how to bring out the magic of her profession as a journalist.
Antonietta Collins Bio
This talented journalist was born in Mexico City on November 22, 1985, under the birth name Antonietta González-Collins, the daughter of her mother, María Antonieta Collins, who was a powerhouse during her time as a journalist. Her mother is also known as an award-winning journalist and writer with some 7 bestsellers. Almost nothing is known about her biological father, as her parents were supposedly divorced sometime in 1992.
Her mother later married a naval architect named Fabio Fajardo, who became her stepfather, but unfortunately, he died of kidney cancer in 2006. The journalist is said to have an older sister, who is apparently her only sibling, as no other siblings have been linked to her.
Antonietta spent her childhood days in Mexico City, where she completed her high school education. As an athlete, she was so good that she earned a spot on the Mexican U19 national football team. After high school, Antonietta was accepted at the University of Mount Union, Ohio, USA, where she majored in Communications.
The Beginning of Her ESPN Career
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Antonietta began her professional career in journalism with a focus on sports after graduating in 2007. Since she has a flair for language – it is said that she has been bilingual since the age of 9 – it was an advantage that she got her first job at Univision in Miami, where she worked as a production assistant.
While working in Miami, she had the chance to work with top producers who produced programs such as Nuestra Belleza Latina, Premios Lo Nuestro, Premios Juventud, and Primer Impacto. She later received an offer from CBS for the position of sports reporter in one of its St. Petersburg branches, which she accepted.
When the lady moved to Texas in 2009, she worked for the Spanish channel KNVO TV 48 and the Fox News team as a news reporter, sports, and weather presenter. Antonietta has undoubtedly established herself as an outstanding sports journalist who has covered the ALDS, ALCS, and World Series of Major League Baseball, the Dallas Cowboys, the NBA postseason, and finals, Dallas FC, and the Dallas Stars.
It was in 2013 that this outstanding journalist caught the attention of the popular ESPN network, and in September of that year, she was recruited as part of the digital team, where her responsibilities included sports news moderation and analysis of sports news videos.
As she became more efficient in her work, she was given more tasks, including corporate reports and interviews. Antonietta even served as a guest host on Baseball Tonight and hosted the Spanish show One Nación on ESPN Deportes. She is currently part of the team for the morning line-up at the Sports Center, which she joined in February 2016.
Antonietta’s Net Worth
As an ESPN employee, Antonietta is certainly well paid for her work, as ESPN has a proven track record of paying its employees very well. Sources say that the young lady earns about $200,000 per year, but she has not yet disclosed her net worth.
Is Antonietta Collins Married?
There has been much speculation about the romantic entanglements and even the marriage of this TV star, but she has not been associated with a boyfriend or spouse. All her energy so far is said to have been invested in her career. Some of her fans, who follow her social media sites like Instagram in the hope of digging up one or two things about her love life, are frustrated. Most of the information they get and the pictures of her on the platform are job-related.
Antonietta Collins can be officially declared unmarried and may not be looking until she reaches the peak of her career.
Height and Body Features
This beautiful journalist has an amazing size of about 5 ft 8 inches, carrying her slim body which weighs about 54 kg. As a sports lover and active athlete, Antonietta has a beautiful body frame that is well shaped and sexy legs that she shows off most of the time in short dresses. She has also known for her shiny black eyes and beautiful smile.
