Christie Ileto
Christie Ileto joined the 6abc Action News team in the fall of 2015.

She is an AP and Emmy Award winning journalist.

Before arriving in the City of Brotherly Love, Christie was a reporter for WJZ-TV in Baltimore, Maryland. There, she was one of the first journalists to extensively cover the arrest of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old who died from spinal injuries while in police custody. She was on the ground moments before riots broke out following his funeral. For 12-hours of live breaking news coverage, she gave Marylanders and the nation an up-close look at the unrest fueled by his death. Christie's coverage continued with citywide protests for police reform, the sweeping changes to police brass, and the undercurrent of violence that gripped the city in the months that followed.

Prior to Baltimore, Christie worked at WAFF in Huntsville, AL and KOAT-TV in Albuquerque, NM, where she appeared on CNN for breaking weather coverage to show the nation how New Mexicans were struggling with the barrage of inclement weather that shut down a major interstate from the Texas state line to Arizona.

A native of the Washington, DC metro area, Christie is happy to be back on the East Coast, closer to family and friends.

Christie is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, and a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.

In her spare time, you can find Christie at a ballet barre class, traveling or attempting to master her father's recipes ... hoping to show her family back in Manila, Philippines that she can make the perfect pancit.
