- WBAL-TV Reporter
Deborah Weiner is living proof that the road to achieving journalistic excellence can run through your own hometown.
Since 1991, Deborah has covered Maryland like few others, receiving numerous Emmy awards for in-depth and investigative reporting, along with the prestigious Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.
Born in Pikesville, Deborah attended The Park School. She is a 1986 graduate of Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. Deborah earned her Master's Degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
Deborah's first television job was at WYFF-TV, WBAL's sister station in Greenville, S.C. In 1991, she moved back home to Baltimore to report for WBFF-TV.
In 1994, ABC News hired her as a correspondent, during which time she covered the Clinton administration and Capitol Hill for the network's local affiliates. She also reported for "Good Morning America" and "World News Tonight" weekend editions.
In 1997, Deborah returned to Baltimore as WBFF's main anchor. While she left the station after the birth of her second child, in-depth journalism never strayed far from Deborah's heart.
In May 2002, Deborah joined WBAL-TV 11's special projects unit and the WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team, working on in-depth and investigative reports, as well as covering Maryland politics.
In April 2012, Deborah and her colleagues produced a special documentary, "Rebounding From Loss," which followed a Baltimore high school basketball team after the tragic loss of one of their players.
When not working, Deborah's proudest accomplishment is her family. She lives in Baltimore County with her husband and two children.
