Christina Aguayo grew up on a farm in the small town of Elizabeth, Colorado. Her parents instilled in her the importance of hard work and raised her with a strong foundation that she could build her life upon.
Growing up on a farm, Christina spent most of her time outdoors developing a love for animals and nature. It was then that she began to see the world through a different set of eyes, coming to the realization that everything and everyone has a heart and a story.
Christina got her first job in Greenville, Mississippi at WABG where she covered the SEC, SWAC, GSC, and local high school sports.
She continued her career in Indiana starting as the Weekend Sports Anchor and was quickly promoted to Sports Director. in Indiana Christina enjoyed covering The Big Ten, The Indianapolis Colts, The Indiana Pacers, The Cincinnati Bengals, ECHL Hockey, Minor League Baseball, and the NBA D-League Champion Mad Ants. She also continued her in-depth focus on local community sports focusing on the local boxing community.
She exclusively covered local champion Robert Easter Jr. on his journey to becoming the IBF Lightweight World Champion. She also covered four-time world champion Adrian Broner, world champion Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis, and Rau’shee Warren.
It was while she was in Ohio that Christina decided to make the switch from sports to news. Although she was excited about her new journey it was difficult to leave such a great love behind. Even so, she jumped right into the news and learned that she was a natural.
In her first year with KVIA in El Paso, Texas Christina covered The Border Crisis of 2019, A Presidential visit, and everything in-between. Her greatest success came with her special reports as this is where her storytelling abilities and creativity had the opportunity to shine.
After just one year in news, Christina was offered a position to create, produce and host her own 30-minute political news show in Denver, Colorado for WeatherNation TV. A new challenge she was thrilled about. Christina created the show concept, secured A-list political guests, mediated on-air discussions, was the Executive Producer, and Anchor for the show. She also wrote each show herself giving her an opportunity to highlight her in-depth writing skills. The show was quickly expanded to one hour and the company was able to sell it on Satellite television and numerous cable outlets.
After spending time at the national level, Christina wanted to get back to local, where she could personally connect, and form relationships with the community she serves.
When Christina made the trip to Northern Michigan and spent time with the team at 9&10 news, she knew this would be her new home.
From the scenic drives, to the endless shorelines, from the warm welcome to the integrity of the newsroom it was a perfect fit. She now looks forward to providing the community with the best possible news coverage while enjoying everything Northern Michigan has to offer.
