She is perhaps best known for her significant screen presence on television as the ESPN news anchor on “SportsCenter.” She has held a number of other positions across various TV channels throughout her career in the sometimes lucrative TV journalism profession, over the last decade.
Early Life and Education
Antonietta’s parents were originally from Veracruz, but later moved to Mexico City, where she was raised with her older sister. Her mother is the award-winning journalist and the author of seven best-sellers – Maria Antonieta Collins. Her father’s identity and profession are unknown, but he and her mother divorced in 1992. Maria later married a naval architect named Fabio Fajardo, who sadly passed away from kidney cancer in 2006. As per her education, she attended high school in Mexico City, where she also excelled at soccer, and was selected for the Mexican Women’s U19 national soccer team. After her matriculation, her parents moved over to Miami, Florida USA; having already visited her sister in Canton, Ohio, where she toured the University of Mount Union, she enrolled there as a media studies major, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in communications and a minor in sports management in 2007. One of her college professors is known to have been Mark Bergmann, the manager of WRMU 91.1 FM, who encouraged her to pursue her current career.
While still in college, Antonietta interned for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the CHL team Youngstown SteelHounds, interviewing players before and after the match. Her first real job was that of an assistant at Univision based in Miami. She was later hired by a CBS affiliate as a sports reporter in St. Petersburg, remaining there until 2009, when she moved to Rio Grande Valley in Texas as a news reporter for the Spanish channel KNVO TV 48 Univision, as well as Fox2 News. She would also fill-in as a sports and weather anchor, reporting in both Spanish and English. Later on she passed on to the Univision’s Dallas-based affiliate Deportes 23, where she was an anchor and reporter, and also produced the Univision 23 local sports show entitled “Accion Deportiva Extra”, which she anchored as well. She was eventually promoted to the position of the morning show host of “Despierta America”, meanwhile also serving on the shows “Primer Impacto” and “Contacto Deportivo.” In 2013, ESPN made her a better offer, and she moved over as a member of the digital media team, rising through numerous promotions until finally becoming the anchor of “Sportscenter” in February 2016, where she remains today.
As for Antonietta’s romantic involvements, not much can be said with certainty. Thus far, there hasn’t been any controversy surrounding her sexuality, in spite of the fact that she hasn’t been known to be in a relationship with any man, and that she hasn’t even be seen attending any event in male company. The star herself chooses to keep the fans in the dark on this matter, and until she decides to reveal more, her relationship status remains unknown.
