Fort Wayne NBC Appoints New Morning Anchor

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WPTA has promoted Julian Teekaram to weekday morning anchor. Terrkaram has been the weekend anchor-reporter for the Quincy Media sister station in the Fort Wayne market, ABC21.

She’s held that role since 2016.

“Julian’s enthusiasm for broadcasting is exceeded, perhaps, only by her enthusiasm for her hometown,” said WPTA news director Jonathan Shelley. “We’re thrilled to have her take on this new role and join our outstanding morning team.”


Teerkaram will join anchor Pauleen Le and meteorologist Yasser Kishk effective immediately.
