The Beginning of Her ESPN Career
Following in her mother’s footsteps, Antonietta began her professional career in journalism after graduation in 2007 with her focus being on sports.

While she was working in Miami, she had the chance to work with top producers who produced programs like Nuestra Belleza Latina, Premios Lo Nuestro, Premios Juventud and Primer Impacto. She later got an offer from CBS for the position of a sports reporter in one of its affiliates in St. Petersburg which she accepted.
When the lady moved to Texas in 2009, she worked with a Spanish Channel KNVO TV 48 and Fox news team as a news reporter, a sports and weather anchor. Antonietta has undoubtedly established herself as a fine sports journalist who has reported for Major League Baseball’s ALDS, ALCS and World Series, the Dallas Cowboys, NBA postseason and Finals, FC Dallas and the Dallas Stars.
It was in 2013 that the outstanding journalist caught the attention of the popular ESPN network and by September that year, she was recruited as part of the digital team with her job description involving analyzing videos of sports news alongside anchoring sports news.
As her efficiency in performing her job increased, she was given more responsibilities which included enterprise reporting and interviews.
