Steven Dilsizian is a reporter for WAAY.

Title: Reporter

I am excited to be joining the WAAY 31 team as a reporter and helping serve the Tennessee Valley.

I grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, right outside of Washington, D.C. and graduated from the University of Maryland. In college, I studied Broadcast Journalism as well as Criminology & Criminal Justice During my time at the University of Maryland, I had the opportunity to be a student anchor and reporter for Capital News Service.

I also interned at USA TODAY, WJLA-ABC7, and NBC Sports Washington where I was able to enhance my broadcast and writing skills. I spent time working for the sports department at some of these internships so if you want to talk any sport, I'm here!

For me, meeting the people in the community and telling the stories that otherwise wouldn't be told are what I enjoy about this job. I look forward to experiencing both of those things here in the Rocket City.
