Antoinette “Annie” DelBel is a western New York native, born and raised in Buffalo. Before joining the WHAM team in January, Antoinette worked in politics as a communications director for a New York State senator. She is excited to have made the decision to follow her true passion and jump back into television news.
Antoinette began her broadcast career in 2011 as a reporter/MMJ for Spectrum News in Buffalo (formerly Time Warner Cable News). An intrepid reporter, Antoinette covered Buffalo’s historic 2014 November snowstorm “Snowvember,” and several stories on daredevil Nik Wallenda. For two years, she singlehandedly reported news across Niagara County out of the Niagara Falls newsroom.
Antoinette holds a Master’s Degree in Communications/TV Broadcasting from New York Institute of Technology. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in English at Daemen College where she also served as a reporter and editor-in-chief at her college newspaper.
When she’s not working, Antoinette loves to travel, work out, read and spend time with family and her Yorkie Bella. An audacious personality, she also enjoys hitting the waves on her surfboard. Antoinette is thrilled to call Rochester home.
