Growing up in Medellin, Colombia, WBTV 3 News Reporter, Astrid Martinez, saw first-hand the civil and political unrest that plagued her country. It was this type of upheaval and the people's lives it affected that first ignited her passion for storytelling and a career in journalism.  

After moving to the United States, Astrid and her family settled in New Jersey, where she graduated with top honors from Montclair State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a concentration in Latin American Studies.  

A natural in the spotlight, this former Miss Colombia USA 2000, began her broadcast career with a stint in New York at HBO followed by roles as a fill-in-host at Azteca America in Naples, FL and as a co-host on the Fox 4 Morning Blend. Prior to landing in Charlotte, this working mother of an eight year old daughter, tackled border issues as the anchor for the KGBT 5 p.m. newscast in south Texas.  

Astrid and her daughter Jolie are excited to be back on the east coast and they look forward to exploring Charlotte.
