Mary Bubala

Mary Bubala 175x131Mary Bubala joined WJZ in December 2003. She now anchors the 4-4:30 p.m. newscast with Vic Carter and 5 p.m. newscast with Jessica Kartalija and continues to report on a daily basis.

A native of Chicago, Mary has made Baltimore her home and has great industry contacts. She first came to Maryland in the summer of 1997 as a general assignment reporter for a local Baltimore competitor, who saw her talents and soon moved her to that station’s weekend news in an anchor position.

Mary began her career in upstate New York at WENY-TV after graduating from Ithaca College with a journalism degree. She stayed in this section of New York State for a number of years, working her way up to successively larger television markets as weekend anchor for WBNG, the CBS affiliate in Binghamton, and for WOKR-TV in Rochester.

While in Rochester, Mary competed against reporters from television stations in New York City to win Best Series from the New York State Broadcasters Association for her reports documenting the plight of residents in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and the incredible efforts of local doctors to revolutionize health care in this impoverished city.

Mary also has been recognized for her reporting and anchoring by the Associated Press in other cities, including Harrisburg, Pa. where she anchored the noon and 5:00 p.m. news for ABC affiliate WHTM-TV before settling in Baltimore.

She lives with her family in Baltimore City and is fond of such outdoor sports as tennis, running and golf.
