Chiu joined CBS back in September 2020 and has already become an important part of their team.

She moderates on-site at major European games including last month’s Champions League final in Paris.

A Mexican and American citizen, Chiu played for Mexico at the 2014 World Cup from youth through U20.

She lives in El Paso, Texas and graduated from the famous University of North Carolina.

Chiu began her broadcasting career performing at the Rio 2016 Olympics and in Australia for Fox Sports.

According to her LinkedIn, she joined Portland Timbers’ digital media team in 2018 as an intern.

She then worked for Orlando City as a reporter for the MLS team.

Her work in Florida landed her a position with CBS Sports and she hasn’t looked back since.

Chiu now has over 28,000 Instagram followers and is friends with another broadcaster, Jules Breach, who works for BT Sport in the UK.

Her Instagram account has a shot with legends Peter Schmeichel and Thierry Henry at the Champions League final earlier this year.

She spoke of her excitement in March ahead of the CBS broadcast of a World Cup qualifier between the United States and Mexico.

Chiu told AwfulAnnouncing, “I’m so excited. I don’t think I ever imagined being on the other side and being a journalist covering it.

“But I feel really lucky to be a part of it in any way. Even if I just went to the game, I would have gone if I wasn’t working on it because it’s a big deal.”

She added: “I think by covering this I should definitely take my journalistic impartiality but my allegiance is to Mexican football.

“I’m always pro-USA when USA is playing anyone, unless it’s Mexico.

“If it’s Mexico, Mexican football trumps the United States simply because I represented them and my upbringing in a very Mexican football culture.

“People think it’s funny because my brothers chose USA, but because I played for Mexico I spent more time there, I fell in love with the culture and the people and I could never beat the Mexico national team line up

“I played with guys growing up in El Paso, which is a border town, and I think that really shaped the kind of player I was back then.

“Playing for Mexico just felt very natural to me because I had played with Mexican or Spanish speaking players all my childhood.

“I think some people have a plan because they have experience or their parents played or whatever, but we had no idea.

“My dad didn’t play football, my mum didn’t play football so we were just trying to be open, if there was an opportunity we would take it. And we were lucky.”
