Some of her most memorable stories include the Sago Mine Disaster where she provided live coverage for the entire state of West Virginia.

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.
