Maria Sansone Biography

As a biography, Maria Sansone was born February 26, 1981 in Erie, Pennsylvania, so her age is just a few days shy of 28. Her measurements are 5’1″. She played basketball in high school at Villa Maria Academy and then graduated from Syracuse University in 2003, at the Newhouse School of Public Communications. She currently resides in New York City.

Maria began in television at a very early age. At 11, Mike Gallagher of WJET-TV hired her as a host of “Down to Size”, a sports show for children. As part of the show, she interviewed several famous sports figures, including Michael Jordan, Bill Cowher, and Tommy Lasorda. From there, her television work continued, co-hosting “Regis and Kelly” during college while Kelly Ripa was on maternity leave. After graduation, Maria joined mtvU where she hosted “The Freshman”. She has also worked with ABC Sports, CBS Sports, and TV Guide Network.

In Spring 2006, Maria landed a job as the host of “The 9″, a new web show hosted by Yahoo!. The show was named the best online video show and one of the 50 coolest websites by Time Magazine. Now she hosts “Pop Tub Daily” on YouTube, a daily celebrity news clip. She has been with Pop Tub since Fall 2008.
