“Journalism is the first rough draft of history.”
-Philip L. Graham
Ali Bauman puts all of her heart into her work. As a NYC-based reporter, she reports enterprise and breaking news stories for CBS 2 New York. Before, Ali was a one-man-band reporter for News 12 The Bronx and News 12 Brooklyn.
In May 2015, Ali graduated Magna Cum Laude from S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with dual majors in Broadcast & Digital Journalism and Political Science. She speaks Spanish and studied in Madrid, Spain in 2013.
Between classes, Ali worked as a part-time multimedia journalist for WBNG-TV Action News in Binghamton, NY. She pitched daily story ideas and worked as a one-man-band in the notorious Central New York snow.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Ali was the first and only undergraduate student to be accepted to the Newhouse Capstone in Washington D.C. in 2014. She was the Capitol Hill correspondent for WETM-TV in Elmira, NY. As an MMJ in a top market, Ali interviewed notable politicians and lobbyists, attended press conferences and localized D.C. politics for her Southern Tier viewers.
Ali is passionate about telling the stories in her community with credibility and personality.
