  • How to fly drones for journalism in the U.S.
    About six months ago, we bought a drone to help us cover stories at the Yakima Herald-Republic, a daily newspaper in Yakima, Washington. We’d seen other people’s drone footage of fires and floods and protests, and wanted to get our own. We knew that a drone had a lot of potential to contribute to our […]
  • Don’t call Steve Stephens ‘The Facebook Killer’
    We in the media love nicknames for notorious people. Often, these names are associated with a place or thing that has a random connection, like The Boston Strangler, The Green River Killer or The San Bernardino Shooters. This time it's "The Facebook killer," the shorthand description for the actions of Steve Stephens, who killed an […]
  • One last lesson from Don Murray, America’s greatest writing coach
    There were five huge boxes sitting at the loading dock of The Poynter Institute yesterday, waiting for the FedEx truck to pick them up. They are filled with more than 125 file boxes containing the literary effects of Donald M. Murray, in my opinion the most influential writing teacher America has ever known. The precious […]

Maureen Green

WTVH-TV
WIXT-TV

Like a lot of Central New Yorkers, Maureen Green came here for the educational opportunities and then never left. A native of Worcester, Massachusetts, Maureen came to Syracuse for graduate work at the S.I. Newhouse School of Communications.

Upon graduation Maureen took a job with hen WIXT, channel 9 as  reporter. Not long after that first job, Maureen was hired by WTVH, ewscenter 5 as it was known then. Maureen’s ability to communicate with an audience, and her pleasant, easy-going style led management to put Maureen in the anchor chair next to the legendary Ron Curtis for the Newscenter 5 News at Noon. She was part of a broadcast that at times pulled 50-60 percent of the audience in those days in the early

and mid 1980’s. A time before cable’s reach became so pervasive.

Soon after, Maureen was promoted and joined Ron Curtis on Newscenter 5 at 6. As the local news content of WTVH expanded to an hour, then 90 minutes, Maureen’s role ion the broadcast did as well. With Ron Curtis, she became the face of Newscenter 5. She was one of the constants at a station that changed its direction and branding several times over the years.

In 1993 she went to WIXT for three years as an anchor, before returning in 1996 to WTVH. When Ron retired in 2000, she became the
senior anchor on WTVH.

Maureen has proved to be an excellent communicator and ambassador for her station. The best examples of Maureen’s relationship with the audience can be seen during channel 5’s many live ‘remotes’ from communities around Central New York and a favorite of viewers when they visited the TV5 broadest
at the New York State Fair.

She was a fixture on election night coverage, numerous specials, and a comforting presence on the air in time of tragedy. She traveled to Northern Ireland for a special on Project Children, which sent kids from that troubled region to spend a summer in Central New York. Maureen was also on the anchor desk delivering the news on such stories as he Labor Day Storm, 9/11, economic booms and busts, and SU trips to the Final 4.

Maureen has garnered numerous awards from the state Associated Press Broadcasters Association and the Syracuse Press Club. In 2006 she received the Press Club’s Gus Bliven-Joe Ganley-Mario Rossi Career Achievement Award in 2005. Maureen has also been recognized for her efforts within the community, named one of the Syracuse Newspapers Movers and Shakers of 1987, Women in Communications Communicator of the year in 1993.---Lou Gulino
