Rebecca came to Hartford Hospital from Fox Connecticut in April 2010.
She worked at Fox for more than seven years. There, she helped launch the Fox CT Morning News, was a veteran reporter for the News at Ten and anchored the top-rated News at Ten on weekends. But perhaps Rebecca is best known for her favorite role, Mom. In her last year at Fox, she spear-headed the highly successful “Mommy Minute” column in the Hartford Courant, producing columns in print and stories for broadcast. As she chronicled the ups and downs of life as a working mom, readers followed along on her adventures with her son. Many readers have asked if she would continue writing it.
“Mommyhood” is the answer to all those questions. It is a forum for moms, by moms.
Before coming to Connecticut, Rebecca worked at WSLS Newschannel Ten, the NBC affiliate in Roanoke, Virginia. There, she anchored both the top-rated morning show and Newschannel Ten at Noon.
Rebecca started her reporting endeavors in print, thousands of miles away. In Buenos Aires, Argentina– Rebecca was an assistant editor at the only English daily there, The Buenos Aires Herald.
Rebecca returned to the United States to pursue her Master’s at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. As part of the Medill program, she had a chance to work for several stations across the country– all while based at the school’s Washington D.C. bureau. She filed stories for KNOE-TV8 News in Monroe, Louisiana, for WHO-AM Radio in Des Moines, Iowa, and also for NY1 News in New York City.
Rebecca holds Bachelors degrees in both Communications and Theatre Arts from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master’s Degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. She and her husband (Newschannel 8 reporter) Jamie Muro live in West Hartford.
Rebecca is also adjunct professor at Quinnipiac University in Hamden. She teaches a course to Master’s students every Spring.
