Rosemary Connors joined NBC10 in June 2009 as a general assignment reporter. Before NBC 10, Connors worked as a reporter and anchor in Fort Myers/Naples, Florida and Grand Junction, Colorado. In Florida, she was honored for her work by the Associated Press, Suncoast Emmys, and the Society of Professional Journalists.
Connors grew up in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania and interned with the NBC10 Investigators while she was a student at the University of Pennsylvania. After she interned at NBC10, she made it her mission to return as a reporter. As a Penn undergrad, she also interned at NBC’s Today Show in New York. While in college, Connors was a member of Penn’s Division I field hockey team that competed in the Ivy League.
Connors is the third generation of women in her family to report the news in Philadelphia. Both her mother and grandmother worked as journalists for the city’s newspapers. Sunday night dinners with her family inspired her to become a reporter, as Philadelphia news and sports dominated the conversation.
Connors resides in Philadelphia, near her parents and three siblings, including a twin brother. She is enrolled as a part-time student at Temple University Law School and completed her first year in May 2011.
