How rich is Sara Cardona? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $3 million, earned through a successful career in sports journalism. She also earned a bit of fame through her relationship with professional American Football player Eric Suabert. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Educaiton
While Sara is from Colombia, very little is known about her family who migrated and settled in Nashville, Tennessee where she would grow up. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga in 2012, and during her time there, she was very active with the campus television station, primarily managed by students.
During her final year with the school, she competed in the pageant Miss Greater Nashville, and reached second runner up position, which led her to compete at the Miss Tennessee USA beauty pageant. The pageant is held to select the representative of Tennessee for the Miss USA pageant and is often held at Austin Peay State University. Only two of the titleholders in pageant history have gone on to win the Miss USA title – Sara reached the third runner up position. Aside from her pageants, she also appeared in the music video entitled “First Kiss” by Kid Rock, which was a part of the album of the same name.
Sports Broadcasting Work
After completing her education, Cardona began to foray into a career in broadcasting, focused on sports. She began working with Nashville’s Fox 17/WZTV as a sportscaster, which is an affiliate station owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group based in Nashville, and one of three stations that share studios along the Cumberland River. She often appeared as a part of “Fox 17 This Morning” which discusses the morning news, and frequently covered sports-related news.
She then started looking for more opportunities, and was seen during a college football game as a sideline reporter working freelance for ESPN, and it was later confirmed in 2017 that the company had officially picked her up as a reporter; the US sports television channel is considered one of the largest sports networks in the world, airing to over 200 countries and available to around 78% of households in the United States. Sara began working for the company as a sideline reporter, covering basketball and football games, and many viewers have noticed her potential, with some even comparing her to Erin Andrews.
Eric Saubert is known for playing in the National Football League (NFL) as a tight end for the team the Atlanta Falcons, prior to which he played college football at Drake. He received a lot of praise for his potential due to high athleticism that even caught the attention of NFL analysts. After a notable college career, he was prospected to be a fifth round pick in the NFL, which proved true as he was selected by the Falcons during the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
He was the first player selected from Drake since 1983, and signed a $2.62 million four-year contract which established his net worth. He became the third string tight end for the team, and made his professional debut during the season, playing in 14 games during his rookie season, and continues to be a member of the Falcons. His position often sees him as a hybrid with roles both on offense and as a wide receiver – tight ends are usually lined-up on the offensive as blockers but can also receive the ball if necessary for the play.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Sara has been linked to Notre Dame Football team captain and safety Austin Collinsworth, who is the son of NFL Network host Cris Collinsworth. During Christmas season in 2017, she confirmed that she was in a relationship with Eric Saubert, as she posted a photo of them together celebrating Christmas on Instagram. According to her, they had been dating for several weeks before making their relationship official.
Similar to numerous sports broadcast personalities, she is highly active online through accounts on social media websites. She has over 90,000 followers on Instagram on which she often showcases a lot of personal photos, involving her travelling to various areas of the world, but also a lot of photos alongside Saubert. She also has a Twitter account on which she posts some of her recent appearances alongside support of her boyfriend. However, she is not very active on the website and often takes time in between her posts. She does not have an account on Facebook, though there are numerous profiles that share the same name as hers, however, she is not associated with any of them.
