Antonietta "Toni" Gonzalez-Collins is a Mexican-American sports commentator and a football (soccer) player who is the daughter of the television reporter María Antonieta Collins. She became known to the Hispanic public in the United States, and to readers in Latin America, when she revealed, in her mother's book titled "Cuando el Monstruo Despierta" ("When the Monster Awakes") that she had been a victim of domestic violence and psychological abuse by a former boyfriend. She currently works for ESPN.


She was born in Mexico City, Mexico, to Mexican parents. She grew up in a bilingual home. Spanish was her first language and she learned English when her family moved from Mexico City to the United States in 1992. She has been bilingual since she was nine years old. She majored in Media Studies and minored in Sport Management at University of Mount Union.

While on campus she was a member of WRMU 91.1 FM and the Purple Raiders women’s soccer team. Following graduation, she became a reporter for KNVO TV 48 Univision in Spanish and at the same time was a reporter for Fox2 News in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.[1]
