My name is Ana Maria Montero and I am an international TV, radio and print journalist with 20 years of experience with CNN (CNNMoney Switzerland, CNN International, CNN Español and CNN domestic), in English and Spanish.
During this time, I hosted 'Escenario', a daily entertainment news show focused on all things arts and entertainment: Hollywood, premieres, celebrity interviews, set visits, film festivals, concerts, etc., including live coverage of the Academy Awards®, Grammys® and other high-profile events.
Rounding out my experience, I worked as a news correspondent covering a wide variety of political, environmental, and social events.
While Los Angeles was officially home, I was often on the move, working out of Atlanta, Manhattan, Miami, Chicago, Buenos Aires, and Mexico City to name a few.
Currently I work as an anchor for 'The Swiss Pulse' on CNNMoney Switzerland.
My toolbox includes live, pre-recorded, in-studio or in the field presenting, interviewing, writing, reporting, and producing. A natural curiosity and sense of humor also come into play, as do the ability to listen and know what I don't know.
I received a Bachelor in Business Administration specializing in Marketing and Advertising from Georgia State University in Atlanta. Additionally I completed 3 minors in Spanish, French and Broadcast Journalism.
I speak English and Spanish fluently, French conversationally, and study German semi-intensively.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, I currently reside in Zurich with my husband and two daughters.
