Beth Parker joined FOX 5 in August of 1998 as a general assignment reporter. She started her career in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley at WHSV-TV in Harrisonburg. She did a little of everything there, working as a reporter, photographer, anchor and producer. Beth then moved to Wilmington, NC where she was the weekend anchor at WECT-TV.
Next, she worked as a reporter at WGHP-TV in the Greensboro/High Point/Winston Salem market of North Carolina. From there she headed north and became a reporter at WBAL-TV in Baltimore. She's won two Edward R. Murrow Awards for investigative reporting. She has also won eight Emmys — for investigative reporting, feature reporting and daily news reporting.
Beth grew up in a small town in Central Pennsylvania called Selinsgrove. At a very young age she started asking "why, why, why?" and her career plan was set. She studied journalism and politics at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. When she's not asking questions, Beth likes to travel, read, cook, and play tennis. She also volunteers as a tutor with Project Northstar, a non-profit that helps D.C.'s at-risk kids.
