Rachel Menitoff joined the WJZ team in June 2019.

Prior to coming to Baltimore, Rachel was a reporter at KSDK/Channel 5 in St. Louis, MO, and, before that, at WVIR/NBC29 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Her reporting has taken her inside the courtroom for civil and criminal trials and appeals; and to legislative hearings and political investigations.

Rachel is a proud graduate of UCLA where she received a B.A. in Communications, and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism where she earned her Masters degree. She was then one of eight McCormick National Security Fellows, based in Washington, D.C. Her reporting led her to Kiev and eastern areas of the Ukraine where she investigated U.S. involvement in landmine destruction efforts in and around the Former Soviet Union.

In her spare time, Rachel enjoys running along the Inner Harbor, scoping out Baltimore’s dog parks with her malti-poo, Coby, and discovering the area’s coolest antique shops.
