Courtney Pomeroy works as a Web Content Editor at All-News 99.1 WNEW and CBSDC.com.

Raised in nearby Howard County, she opted to attend the University of Maryland, College Park for the in-state tuition. The prestigious journalism program didn’t hurt, either.

She worked in newspapers for three years after graduating in 2009. Looking for a more fast-paced environment, she turned to the world of radio in early 2013.

When she’s not in the newsroom, she’s usually skating as a member of her roller derby team in Frederick, Md.
