Hillary Howard

Afternoon Anchor (2pm - 7pm)

Hillary Howard is an award winning Radio and TV reporter who has worked in Washington for more than 20-years.

Originally a radio newsperson in suburban New York, Hillary jumped to television as a weathercaster and reporter in the Catskills. She was a weekend weather forecaster at WAVY-TV in Norfolk, Va., and again at WTTG until taking over the weekend anchor slot. At WUSA she was the morning weather forecaster from 2000 to 2004.

Before her Regional Murrow, SPJ and AP awards at WTOP she won a handful of Emmys for writing, reporting and even weather casting in DC. A story on a local environmental crisis landed her a finalist spot in the NY Film and TV festivals. She was also honored with a national Imagen Award for a story impacting the Hispanic community.

Outside of work, Hillary enjoys volunteering with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation — an organization that sweeps in and supports surviving families after a line-of-duty death. Each year she and husband Dave Statter anchor coverage of the weekend event. Dave is a former Prince George’s County firefighter and dispatcher.

Originally from New York, Hillary now calls the Washington DC area home. Hillary and her family live in Northern Virginia.
