JAIME MACÍAS

Sports Analyst

After trying to be a mechanic, a pilot, and a professional football player, the world of television knocked at my front door. My first opportunity arrived when I was just 15 years old to commentate on Formula 1 and the rest is history.
I started my professional television career with TC Television in 2006. There I was able to do a variety of things, from presenter of the Sport's Segment, to being a correspondent in Europe and perform analysis of CONMEBOL qualifying and local competitions. I covered numerous international events including the World Cup in 2010 and 2014.
