While in her teens, Maria was an aspiring swimmer, and won three medals at the Central American and Caribbean Swimming Championships. She also qualified for the Summer Olympics in 1976 held in Montreal, Canada; unfortunately she didn’t participate due to mononucleosis. Two years later, she left Puerto Rico for the mainland USA, and enrolled Loyola University in New Orleans, graduating with a degree in Communications.

Her career began in 1986 when she joined the local TV station in Puerto Rico, Channel 24, in news anchor and reporter positions. While working for the station, Maria traveled throughout the world, covering numerous events, and was rewarded journalistic awards for her work.

Two years later, Maria became co-anchor of the show “Primer Impacto”, alongside Myrka Dellanos. The show became extremely popular over the years, increasing her net worth by a large margin. She served as the co-anchor until 2002, when she decided to leave the station and join Telemundo, which is an archrival of Univision. She immediately took several positions, including the co-host of the “Today” show, and as host and managing editor of the show “Al Rojo Vivo con Maria Celeste”. Little by little she expanded her presence to English language shows, and in 2004 she co-hosted the Brown-Black Democratic Presidential Debate in Iowa for MSNBC, and has also contributed to numerous shows on NBC, including “Dateline” and “Nightly News”, among others. Her appearance in shows has increased their popularity, and cemented Maria’s place in the entertainment industry. In 2012 Maria was appointed as co-anchor of the Noticiero Telemundo, with Jose Diaz-Balart, where she worked for the next four years, but in 2016 she left the show to fully focus on her own show “Al Rojo Vivo con Maria Celeste”.

Most recently she was a panelist for the Republican Party presidential debate held in Houston.

During her career, Maria has received numerous prestigious awards, including three Emmy Awards, the first Emmy in 2005 for her career achievements, and then in 2014 and 2016 her second and third Emmy awards. In 2013 she was the recipient of the Silver Circle Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for her outstanding career in journalism, among many other awards.
