María Salazar joined FOX 26 News in February 2018 as a reporter. Raised in Georgia, Maria is delighted to be back in the South and feels at home in Texas. She comes from Reading, Pennsylvania where she worked for two years as bilingual reporter for WFMZ. While at WFMZ, she covered the impacts of increased immigration enforcement in Reading and shed light on the city’s drug trade problem. Maria was also sent to Washington, D.C. to cover President Trump’s inauguration and the women’s march. Previously, María was a reporter at Telemundo Atlanta where she worked in partnership with the local ABC affiliate in Atlanta, WSB-TV, to uncover abuse and fraud at a local private school for troubled teens. The school closed due to loss of enrollment after the investigative reports aired in August 2015. The school's director was later arrested on multiple fraud and theft by deception charges. Moreover, at Telemundo Atlanta, Maria worked on a four-part Southeast Emmy-nominated political special during the 2014 elections. Maria interviewed the front runners for Georgia Governor and U.S. Senate. She also produced in-depth reports on the electoral process for first time voters. María is a three-time Southeast Emmy award-winning reporter including one for a report on sex trafficking in the Atlanta area. Born in Chicago to immigrants from Mexico, Maria is proud of her Mexican-American heritage. She holds a BS in Public Policy and a MS in Social Foundations of Education from Georgia State University. When Maria isn't reporting, you can catch her pretending to be a mariachi singer and trying a new recipe.
