My name is Brooke Buford and I am a multimedia journalist at WGME-TV (CBS) in Portland, ME. I joined the news team in December 2012. I connect with viewers through broadcast, social media and the station website.
Prior to reporting in Portland, I was a weekend anchor/producer and multimedia journalist at KALB-TV (NBC/CBS) in Alexandria, LA. Although I was a general assignment reporter, much of my time was spent focusing on city politics and crime.
I came to Maine from Baltimore, MD, where I was born and raised. I'm a graduate of Towson University in Towson, MD and have a bachelor's degree in mass communication.
In college, I gained hands-on experience as an intern for both local news (WJZ-TV in Baltimore) and national news (ABC News "Good Morning America" in Washington, DC and "World News with Diane Sawyer" in New York City).
