BUFFALO, N.Y. - Teresa Weakley comes to News 4 Wake Up from Youngstown, Ohio, where she was the evening anchor at the LIN Media owned local CBS affiliate.
Teresa is no stranger to mornings. Prior to her time in Youngstown, Teresa worked for WKRN Nashville’s News 2 This Morning, reporting live from the scene of every breaking story or special event in town. She covered the historic flood of 2010, where thousands of people lost their homes and belongings. Being on the scene of nearly every overnight crime also gave her special insight into the police department and gang culture in Nashville. She put together an Emmy Nominated news special on the subject in 2009.
Teresa earned a Broadcast Journalism degree from New York University, and started her career at CNN's American Morning.
While in Youngstown, Teresa met and married her husband, who was the Sports Anchor for the station. They now have a young daughter together.
Music is Teresa's earliest passion. She has played the violin since the age of 9, but also sings and plays guitar. She played a lead role in the musical "Annie" at the DeYor Performing Arts Center in Youngstown in 2012.
Besides the Arts, Teresa also loves to cook, play tennis, and explore the outdoors. She looks forward to the many opportunities to do so in Western New York.
