ABC 7 Chicago’s Diane Pathieu will be our master of ceremonies. Diane joined ABC 7 Chicago, the Number One station in the market, as a reporter in December, 2011. She reports for the ABC 7 weekend morning newscasts and fills-in throughout the week with news and traffic reports.

Prior to joining the ABC 7 team, Diane was a reporter/anchor at WTMJ4 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She reported for their morning show, “Live at Daybreak” and also served as anchor of “Live at Noon.”
Diane got her start at KFXB-TV in Dubuque, Iowa after graduating Columbia College Chicago in 2001, and has worked at various stations in the Midwest over the years. She even dabbled in radio, both on-air and behind the scenes!

Diane is a native Chicagoan, born and raised in Rogers Park. She is a first-generation American; her family comes from Lebanon and Syria, and they are all fluent in the Assyrian language. Diane is happy to be back home and looks forward to helping serve her community.
