Christine D’Antonio

Dantonio, Christine WEB 2014Christine D’Antonio joined the KDKA-TV news team as a general assignment reporter in April of 2012. A Pittsburgh native, D’Antonio graduated from Hampton High School and Duquesne University.

With a decade of television news experience under her belt, D’Antonio feels fortunate to tell the stories from her hometown at the station she grew up watching.

D’Antonio started her on-air career at WBOY-TV in Clarksburg, W. Va. She wore several hats at the station as a reporter, anchor, producer and photographer. Some of her most memorable stories include the Sago Mine Disaster where she provided live coverage for the entire state of West Virginia. While in West Virginia, D’Antonio’s work was also featured on MSNBC and The Drudge Report.

From West Virginia, D’Antonio headed south to Greenville, N.C.. She served as the primary anchor for WITN-TV’s 5, 6 and 11 o’clock evening newscasts. D’Antonio also served as the 11 p.m. Executive Producer while at the station.

D’Antonio also earned accolades from the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas for in depth reporting on a family’s fight regarding the detrimental effects of Second Generation Agent Orange Syndrome.

When she’s not digging up stories, you can find Christine taking in a Pirates game with her husband, Luke, at PNC Park and swinging a terrible towel at Heinz Field cheering for the Steelers.

Her passions include spending time with family, travel and golden retrievers.
