The New York native began her broadcasting career during her years at SUNY Oswego as a Broadcasting major and News Anchor at the college TV station WTOP. She also interned at WTVH-TV in Syracuse, and at a television marketing firm in London, England.
After graduation, Tina started working as an assistant producer for CBS News Productions in New York City. There she contributed to several documentary projects for the A&E Biography series and the Travel Channel.
A year later, she moved across 57th street to join the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. In that role, she helped producers and correspondents from bureaus across the globe gather video for their stories. Her most memorable projects included extensive coverage of Operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Washington D.C. sniper shootings, and most significantly, the September 11, 2001 tragedy. Tina's work on that story earned her an Emmy Certificate from the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Tina then took a leap in front of the camera, when she accepted a job as a Reporter at the CBS affiliate KFDA in Amarillo, Texas. While in that role, Tina flew with the Thunderbirds at Cannon AFB, and traveled hundreds of miles in a week to cover the massive wildfire outbreak that burned over a million acres in the Texas Panhandle. She then transitioned to morning television, becoming the station's Early Show co-anchor.
