Maggie Newland

After 15 years working at news stations across the country, Maggie is happy to make her home in Raleigh. She anchors the weekend newscasts on CBS North Carolina and reports during the week.

For the past four years she reported at WFOR in Miami, one of the busiest news markets in the country. During her time there she covered numerous crime stories, including when a gunman killed six people at an apartment complex before he was killed by police. Maggie was also the first reporter in any news market worldwide to obtain video of pop star Justin Bieber’s alleged drag race down a Miami Beach street.

Before moving to Miami, Maggie worked for three years at KSTP in Minneapolis where she covered the reopening of the 35-W bridge after it collapsed, reported from the floor of the 2008 Republican National Convention, and spent plenty of time in subzero temperatures for blizzard coverage.

Maggie worked at WBBH in Fort Myers, Fla., from 2004-2008, including the historic 2005 hurricane season. During her time in Fort Myers, the Associated Press honored Maggie for her yearlong investigation that ended with the arrest and conviction of a Cape Coral councilman and his subsequent removal from office.

Before that, Maggie worked as a reporter, anchor, and producer at WVIR in Charlottesville, Virginia.

She got her start in news at WRIC in Richmond, Virginia, where she grew up.

Maggie graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the College of William and Mary with a double major in English and Government.

After the seemingly endless summers in Miami, and extra-long winters in Minnesota, Maggie is thrilled to be back in a place with four “normal” seasons. She and her husband are excited to raise their baby boy in such a family-friendly community. They live in Raleigh along with their two rescue dogs, Spot and Bailey.
