Carl attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated in 1993 with a degree in political science. During his time there he would intern at Westword Magazine in Denver and was also a columnist for the Boulder Daily Camera. He then worked as an editorial assistant for National Public Radio in Washington D.C.
In 1994, Carl became part of The Wall Street Journal, and would write for the newspaper covering a variety of topics, which included economic issues, airlines, and manufacturing. He also wrote on workplace issues in a weekly column of the Journal, handling all of these tasks for the next five years; during this time he would start to build his net worth significantly. In 1999, he would become a correspondent for “Business Center” and several other CNBC programs. He also worked as a special correspondent for the Fox News Channel program “Fox X-Press”, and then served as the co-anchor for the CNBC morning program “Wake Up Call” before joining NBC.

Among important events, in 2006, Quintanilla covered the Israel-Lebanon conflict, and a year later worked on “Big Mac: Inside the McDonald’s Empire”., for a CNBC documentary. Four years later he would become the anchor of “NBC Nightly News”, though mainly covering for Lester Holt and Brian Williams when they were away. He was also a substitute co-host on the “Today Show” during weekends. Thanks to these opportunities, his net worth continued to elevate. Around this time he was already working as part of “Squawk Box”, but would leave the show to join the “Squawk on the Street” team. In 2014, he then worked as a correspondent on HBO Real Sports, and one of his latest works was during the Republican presidential candidate’s third debate, for which he was the moderator. His work was criticized by some for allegedly being rude to the candidates, and unprepared for the event.

Regardless, Carl has won several awards over the course of his career, mainly for his coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. For that, he won a Peabody Award, Edward R. Murrow Award, and an Emmy Award.

However, Quintanilla drew the ire of many media commentators and satirical TV host Jon Stewart during 2008, for allegedly not asking tougher questions in his interview with Allen Stanford. This came at the time of the 2008 global financial crisis, when Stanford and his company would be revealed as a part of a large Ponzi scheme which subsequently brought him a 110-year prison sentence.

For his personal life, it is known that Carl has been married to Judy Chung since 2005.
