He began work at ABC as co-host of “Good Morning America/Sunday,” while also serving as a contributor to “Good Morning America” (1994-95). He is one of the only Hispanic males to anchor a regularly scheduled national broadcast news show.
Most recently, Antonio anchored various newscasts for CBS4 News in Miami from January 2008 until December of 2012, following six years at its sister CBS station WBBM in Chicago. Mora was the first Hispanic to serve as a lead anchor at a network-owned station in Chicago and the original host of “Eye on Chicago,” CBS 2′s multiple Emmy-Award winning public affairs program.

Antonio is fluent in Spanish and worked as an anchor for Telemundo’s New York station, WNJU-TV (1991), after beginning his broadcasting career as a sports anchor and reporter for Univision’s New York station WXTV (1989-91).
Antonio has been recognized for excellence throughout his career, receiving awards for reporting, anchoring, breaking-news anchoring, interviewing and commentary. His many honors include two Peabody Awards, a national Edward R. Murrow Award, three national Emmy Awards, nine local Emmy Awards and a Silver Dome. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and is a former Vice President of Broadcast for the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

Antonio began his career as a corporate attorney for Debevoise & Plimpton in New York. He received his L.L.M. from Harvard Law School and a J.D., summa cum laude, from the Universidad Catolica Andres Bello in Caracas, Venezuela.
