Deena Centofanti Biography
Deena Centofanti Career
Centofanti began her TV career in 1990 at WSYX in Columbus, Ohio, making $5 an hour, doing any job they gave her. This is where she became very close friends with a production director, Keith.
As she moved on to slightly higher-paying jobs, Keith did too. At times there was a lot between us, but we always felt like a team. In 1996, we got married- and that was just the beginning of many blessings.
In 1997, she got the chance to work in Detroit at Fox 2 news. Initially her work life here was really challenging; getting to know a new city, new people, figuring out how to generate sources and stories. Her work life was hard and her personal life was rewarding.
In more than 2 decades at Fox 2, she has met so many incredible people, they share personal stories of hardship, tragedy, bad fortune… to help the rest of us learn and grow. She has cried with women facing advanced breast cancer, stood with parents who, with pride and tears, watch their disabled children ride a custom bike for the first time, and she has felt the despair of a family suddenly facing a devastating loss that no one saw coming.
Whether it’s joy or pain, when one is willing to learn about each other’s experiences and share their stories, one starts to realize we are all more alike than we are different.
As she reflects, she is so thankful for 2 things; their Fox 2 viewers and her Fox 2 family, both have given her years of support, wisdom, laughter, and love.
