Denise Sawyer is a two-time Associated Press award-winning television journalist, who now works as the Treasure Coast beat reporter at CBS12 News.
Sawyer formerly served as the Director of Communications for Ocean Pines, Md., where she had daily oversight of the municipality’s public relations, community relations, its websites, government access television channel, social media, and e-community with more than 50,000 subscribers. She had positioned Ocean Pines as a premier residential and resort community. Under her efforts, Ocean Pines had been named one of the “Best Places to Retire in 2017” by Forbes Magazine, a leading source for business news and financial information in the nation.
Before working with public relations, Sawyer worked television and radio.
At WBOC-TV, Sawyer worked as the Worcester County beat reporter. She ‘broke’ a story of a Maryland man who swam five hours to save his family who was aboard a sinking boat. Her story was picked up by Good Morning America, Inside Edition, CBS Evening News, World News with Diane Sawyer, WJLA, WUSA9, and Yahoo News. Her work with WBOC-TV landed her a regional award.
At WRDE-TV, she worked as the second-in-command at the NBC affiliate in Rehoboth Beach, Del. From anchoring the Evening News to delivering a series of investigative work within the Cape Region, Sawyer had her hand in every facet of the newsroom. Her aggressive yet compassionate reporting over the past years captured the attention of the Associated Press. She was recently named “Best Reporter” in the region at the 2017 Chesapeake Region AP awards ceremony.
In radio, Sawyer worked as an on-air talent for WZEB-FM and WOCQ-FM. She was able to ‘let down her hair’ and have a little fun. Sawyer led a five-hour live radio broadcast.
- She graduated from Howard University’s School of Communications.
- Sawyer was born in Miami, Fla., as the youngest sibling with five brothers. Now a Floridian, she is thrilled to call the Treasure Coast home.
