Danielle Trotta is an American journalist who reports motorsport for Sirius XM. She co-hosted the Fox Sports 1 Xfinity Series pre-race show NASCAR Race Hub and NASCAR Race Day.

Trotta departed Fox Sports 1, previously recognized as Speed, in April 2017 to join Sirius XM on the radio, where she supervises NASCAR auto races, after 7 years of professional broadcasting.

Early Life

Danielle was born on March 13, 1981, in Westchester County, New York, where she spent her whole childhood and adolescence. Her kind and caring parents, Phyllis and Dan Trotta nurtured her and her younger sister, Andrea. The Trotta clan had to relocate to Richmond, Indiana, when Danielle was just 10 years old and before she began high school, and then to Carmel for work purposes. She began her work career at an early age.

In terms of education, she attended Carmel High School and worked as a reporter and broadcaster for their 24-hour local tv station from 1995 until 1999. She also participated in three straight national competitions in diving, swimming, and springboard diving simultaneously time. She later attended the University of North Carolina and earned a degree in Mass Journalism. 

During her four years as a bachelor's student, this outstanding journalist also completed some internships. Throughout her stay there, she interned at WBTV in Indianapolis and WBTV in Charlotte, as well as doing photography work. She eventually persuaded management to give her a shot in front of the camera, and in 2007, she made her on-screen debut hosting shows including "Sports Saturday Night" and "The Point After with D&D."


Danielle Trotta is a happily married woman who is engaged in a long-term marital life with her old lover, Robby Benton. On December 9, 2016, Trotta used Twitter to communicate her joy, saying that Benton had recommended she pop the question of marriage while handing her a lovely solitaire ring and the caption is, "Up in the city, alone in the cathedral of Monaco, the man of my dreams asked me to be his wife." Trotta agreed, and the couple went a year afterward to recite wedding vows. On October 27, 2018, the couple conducted a wedding ceremony.

The couple is content with their marriage and cherishes personal moments on social networking sites. Trotta, on the other hand, has yet to reveal the conception of their child. Seems like their fans will have to wait a little longer to hear such information from the pair. Considering their heavy workload, the couple makes time for one other. The amazing couple was often photographed on holiday in exotic destinations. Trotta has several photos of them on her Instagram. The pair is content with their lives and have no plans to divorce.

Who is Robby Benton?

We all know that journalist Danielle Trotta is a NASCAR fan, but you will be amazed to know that her husband is the same.  Robby Benton, like his wife, is heavily active in NASCAR and, as of 2018, serves as team manager for Team Penske's NASCAR teams. He formerly co-owned the Xfinity Series-winning international stock car racing team RAB Racing. He told Speedway Digest at the time, "I'm very thrilled to join an enterprise like Team Penske." I'm pleased to be given this chance, and I hope I can assist the company as it expands its NASCAR activities."

Prior to that, Benton was a founder of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and a professional stock car racing driver in the NASCAR Busch, Truck, and East Series. Benton is a retired NASCAR Busch Series racer. Given that Trotta co-hosted NASCAR Race Hub, we think the duo is a solid match.

Broadcasting Career

Trotta joined the station's athletics department in 2006 because she loves reporting sports stories, especially about high school players' self-empowerment both on and off the field. She worked with WBTV until 2010 when she decided to join Fox Sports after winning a Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas Award. 

She held positions on "The ACC Blizz," the ACC Network's pre-game, and the half-time show. She began to compose football articles for the publication "Charlotte Weekly" in 2011 and was also a per-week commentator on ESPN 730, covering various NASCAR and ACC Football events, working in conjunction with Steve Byrnes, who would become her supervisor. The same year, she co-hosted Speed's broadcast of the NASCAR Sprint Award Show in Las Vegas, which led to her collaborating with NASCAR and documenting MotoGP and Supercross competitions over the next few millennia. She took over as host of the Xfinity Series race "NASCAR RaceDay" in 2015.

Danielle made her Fox NFL debut as a sideline reporter at the same time she hosted "NASCAR RaceDay." She remained in the same position for two years before formally announcing her departure from "NASCAR Race Hub" and Fox Sports to seek other possibilities; she was succeeded by Shannon Spake. She began working for the radio channel Sirius XM shortly after departing, covering motor racing events. 

She later expressed gratitude to Fox for assisting her in pursuing new chances, and she is enthusiastic to continue building her career with new challenges. She also began working for NBC Sports Boston. Danielle Trotta, a former FOX Sports and NASCAR reporter, returns to viewers' homes with My Dream Car! The show follows families as they search for, buy, restore, and surprise their parents with the things they previously owned and loved.

Net worth 

Danielle Trotta's net worth as a reporter is estimated to be more than $2 million by 2022. She has been working professionally for almost a decade, which has greatly increased her net worth. When it comes to income, her present firm, NBC Sports, makes $115,000 a year. She is said to receive roughly $70,000 each month from the network.

Nevertheless, given Trotta's popularity as a sports journalist, we wouldn't be astonished if she receives the aforementioned. She also gets money by presenting as a speaker on a television or radio discussion show and coaching the show. On the other hand, her starring film, The Logan Lucky, grossed $29,000,000.
