Teresa Tomeo speaking at the 2011 Bringing America Back to Life Symposium on: “Bringing the News Media Back to Life” An inside look at what to expect from the main stream media and how to approach the media professionals so as to get your story in the news. Tomeo is a veteran broadcast-journalist with more than 20 years of experience as a radio and TV news reporter and anchor woman mainly in the Detroit area.
Teresa first served as an award winning radio reporter and radio news anchor receiving recognition for her work from the Associated Press, The Detroit Press Club, and the American Women in Radio and TV. After making the move to TV news in 1988, Teresa worked as a reporter/anchor for WKBD-TV 50, covering the streets of Detroit live five nights a week. She then reported for the ABC affiliate, WXYZTV Channel 7. Her assignments at Channel 7 took her across the country covering some of the most significant stories of the ‘90s, including the Oklahoma City Bombing and the 1995 visit to the United States by Pope John Paul II. Despite her success and recognition, Teresa began to become disillusioned and disappointed by the trends in the media toward sensationalism, violence, and liberal bias. In 2000 Teresa decided to leave the secular media to help families and other concerned citizens engage the culture. Teresa Tomeo is now an author, syndicated Catholic talk show host, professional speaker, and media consultant. Most recently, she was invited to Rome to be one of only 260 international delegates to participate in the 20th anniversary of Mulieris Dignitatum, a “Congress on Women”.
