Kristy Breslin joined WJZ in May 2011 after serving several years as the fill-in traffic reporter. She is now seen every weekday on WJZ for the 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. newscasts, reporting up-to-the-minute traffic conditions for the evening rush hour.

Kristy is a Harford County native who grew up in Bel Air and studied at Towson University.

She got her first taste of broadcasting as the host of “Harford MagaScene,” a showcase of notable people and programs that are happening in the communities of Harford County. This gave Kristy the opportunity to support local charities like the ARC Northern Chesapeake, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Boys and Girls Clubs of Harford County and Habitat for Humanity. Kristy has held several on air positions throughout the Baltimore region in radio and television before coming to WJZ.

She lives in Harford County with her husband and two children. When she is not out navigating the roads she enjoys bike riding, rollerblading, and playing lacrosse. Most of all, Kristy enjoys being a mother.
