In addition to being a journalist, Cathy Areu is also an English teacher, media entrepreneur, and political activist. Her controversial views on United States politics and system of education as well as Latino and pop culture issues have caught the attention of both the local and global media. While her professional life is obviously open to the public, many do not know so much about her personal life. Read on to have a sneak peek of the latter.

Cathy Areu Bio: How Old is She?

Cathy Areu first came into this world on 15th February 1971 and was born in Summit, New Jersey, United States. Her nationality is American and she has a Hispanic ethnicity. Her parents are immigrants from Cuba, a Caribbean country. The media star spent her early years in New Jersey where she completed her basic education.

Upon graduation, Cathy attended Florida State University where she got a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature. She later went on to the Nova Southeastern University, graduating with a Master’s degree in English. While studying in Nova, Cathy worked as an adult education and Spanish teacher.


Before venturing into full-time journalism, Cathy taught English Language, ESL, and journalism at a Palm Beach County School, Florida. Areu began her media career in 2000 as a column interviewer for The Washington Post Magazine. From 2000 to 2010, Cathy wrote short interviews on the magazine’s column titled, “First Person Singular”.

During her decade-long job with The Washington Post, Cathy had the opportunity to interview many famous and influential U.S. political figures. Some of them include First Lady Laura Bush, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Senator Al Franken, and Secretary of State James Baker.

In 2001, Cathy Areu founded the multi-platform media company, Catalina Magazine. The magazine serves as a medium for breaking stereotypes as well as reflecting the positive image of the U.S. Hispanic community. Cathy has also written a non-fiction inspirational book, Latino Wisdom: Celebrity Stories of Hope, Inspiration, and Success to Recharge Your Mind, Body, and Soul. The book which is a collection of stories by the nation’s best known Hispanic figures was published in 2006 by Barricade Books.

Unlike some of her colleagues in the field, Cathy is a freelance journalist. During presidential elections, Cathy usually appears on numerous news channels for political commentary and topic analysis. As a freelance reporter, she is not working full-time or permanently with any media company but rather makes guest appearances on a number of media talk shows. Prominent among them are Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor, Fox Business Channel’s Stuart Varney show, HLN’s Prime News, RussiaToday’s CrossTalk, CNN’s Cambell Brown, MSNBC’s The Daily Rundown, AC360, The Sean Hannity Show and lately Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Is Cathy Areu Married – Who Is Her Husband?

Having made a reputable name for herself on the media, a lot of people became interested in Cathy Areu’s personal life. Who could be the man behind this daring woman and all that were questions arising? Unfortunately, the exceptional journalist has kept her personal affairs and relationships private. No information is available on whether Cathy is married or not, or whom her husband is.

Many hungry ears heaved a sigh of relief sometime in 2017 when news broke that Cathy’s husband has been unraveled. The reports said she was spotted with her husband at Paul and Dee Dee’s book launch in New York City. Getty Images supported this claim with a photo of Cathy and a man in a romantic pose. This, however, turned out to be false as the Fox News analyst later debunked the claims on Twitter. In her tweet dated 13 May 2018, she warned readers not to believe everything they see or read, saying point blank that she doesn’t have a husband.

Apparently, Cathy Areu is still single and not married. We only know that she has two daughters who were born in the year 2007 and 2009. She has shared photos of the adorable girls on her Instagram account on different occasions. However, she has never said anything about their dad.
