Danielle Trotta: Bio, Parents, Siblings, Ethnicity
She was born on March 13, 1981, in Westchester County, New York State, USA. She was previously a co-host of Fox Sports 1’s “NASCAR Race Hub.”
Danielle grew raised with a younger sister in Westchester Country. Her family moved to Richmond, Indiana, when she was ten years old, and eventually to Carmel, Indiana, because of the family company.
Danielle Trotta attended Carmel High School, where she acquired an interest in broadcasting while working as both a host and a reporter for the school’s 24-hour local station. She was also a competitive swimmer and diver, having competed in three state championships.
She attended four different institutions throughout the East Coast after matriculating before settling at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she earned a degree in mass journalism.
All about Danielle Trotta’s Career
Danielle Trotta did internships at television stations in Indianapolis and Charlotte, including WBTV, during her stay there. She went on to work for WBTV as a weekend news editor and photographer after graduation.
She eventually persuaded management to give her a shot in front of the camera, and in 2007, she began hosting shows including “Sports Saturday Night” and “The Point After with D&D.”
Trotta went to the sports department of the station in 2006 because she loves reporting sports stories, particularly about high school players overcoming hurdles on and off the field.
She remained at WBTV until 2010, when she was awarded a Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas Award, before deciding to join Fox Sports. She later worked on “The ACC Blizz,” an ACC Network pre-game and half-time show.
Trotta began writing football pieces for the newspaper “Charlotte Weekly” in 2011, and was also a weekly contributor at ESPN 730, where she was heard covering numerous NASCAR and ACC Football events, working closely with Steve Byrnes, who would later become her mentor.
She went on to co-host Speed’s coverage of the NASCAR Sprint Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas the following year, which led to her continuing to do NASCAR-related work and covering MotoGP and Supercross events for the next few years. She took over as host of the Xfinity Series events “NASCAR RaceDay” in 2015.
Danielle made her debut as a sideline reporter for Fox NFL about the same time she was anchoring “NASCAR RaceDay.” She lasted in the same position for two years before formally announcing her departure from “NASCAR Race Hub” and Fox Sports to pursue other possibilities; Shannon Spake took her place.
She began working for the radio station Sirius XM, covering motor racing events, shortly after she left. Danielle Trotta later stated that she is grateful to Fox for assisting her in pursuing new chances, and that she is looking forward to continuing to grow her career with new challenges. She has also begun working at NBC Sports Boston.
Net Worth and Salary
Danielle Trotta’s net worth is unknown. According to sources, he has a net worth of over $2 million as of mid-2018, which he obtained from a successful career in sports broadcasting.
She also worked for Fox, where she covered the NFL and the Xfinity Series. It is believed that as she progresses in her job, her fortune would grow as well.
Relationship Status: Divorced?
Trotta is engaged to Robby Benton, a former co-owner of the professional stock car racing team RAB Racing, which won one race in the Xfinity Series but never qualified for a Cup Series race during his career there.
Later, he worked as a NASCAR team manager for Team Penske. He reportedly proposed to Danielle in 2016 at the Cathedral of Monaco, according to reports.

Danielle, like a lot of other sports journalists, is quite active on social media, with accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
She primarily promotes her recent work and projects, including as her NBC Sports Boston broadcasts, as well as keeping her followers up to date on NASCAR news. Her Instagram feed is full with photos of her with coworkers and friends, as well as pictures of her attending sporting events and snapping pictures of her dog.
Her Facebook profile is the least active of her social media sites, with the most recent post being in early 2017. Since quitting Fox Sports and posting thank you messages to her fans, there has been no activity on that account.
