Julie Dunphy joined the WTAP News team in March 2017 as the Marietta Bureau Reporter.
Her fiery passion for news started when she was just a child, from reading the newspaper with her grandparents to watching the news every night during dinner. That flame continued to grow through high school as she had her first experience anchoring on PATV while she attended Padua Academy in Wilmington, Delaware.
Julie graduated cum laude from York College of Pennsylvania in May 2016 with a degree in Mass Communications and minors in Photography and Visual Communications.
During her college career, Julie was active in her love for sports, playing both field hockey and club lacrosse for the Spartans. She was also an active member of Lambda Pi Eta, the National Communication Association’s Honor Society.
She furthered her interest in journalism interning at WHP CBS 21 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where she was able to learn hands on all aspects of the newsroom.
When she is not reporting, Julie loves to be outdoors and around water. You may find her out jogging by the Ohio River, feel free to say hello!
Julie is excited to call the Mid-Ohio Valley her new home, ready to pursue her dreams and can’t wait to see what new adventures it has to offer.
