Satcha Pretto is a star journalist, working as a co-anchor for Univision’s morning show ¡Despierta América! Pretto was born in La Paz, Honduras. She performed spectacularly in her studies during high school, and earned herself a scholarship to Angelo State University in Texas, where she received a bachelor’s degree in Communications.
But Satcha first began her career in media while still in high school in Honduras. At age 17, she was hired by Radio Suprema Stereo 99.5, and received three months of intense training prior to her big debut. In August 1997, Pretto first appeared on the airwaves of her home country. She remained with that radio station for a year before leaving her job and country to pursue a college education in San Angelo, Texas.
After college, Pretto performed as a reporter and anchor on a late night newscast in Midland-Odessa, Texas. In October 2003, Satcha moved over to Dallas, where she worked as a co-anchor on Cinco en Punto (Five o’Clock). She also worked as a reporter for Edición Nocturna (Nightly Edition).
On July 13, 2006, Satcha was named the new co-host of Univision’s very popular program Primer Impacto. Less than a year later, Pretto covered Pope Benedict XVI’s trip to Brazil. And in 2011, Pretto moved on to co-anchor the highly rated ¡Despierta América!
