Mary Dunleavy joined NBC29 as a general assignment reporter in December 2011 and made the switch to sports anchor/reporter in September 2012.
Her broadcast journalism career started at Virginia Tech where she graduated with a bachelors degree in Electronic and Print Journalism and minored in Sociology.
Before working at NBC29, Mary was working behind the scenes in New York City at Original Media, TLC, ESPN, and most recently Bloomberg The Global Business Network.
She's a proud alumni of Virginia Tech Sports and was fortunate to intern with Lindsay Czarniack (now at ESPN), Dan Hellie, Hakem Dermish(now at ESPN) and Brett Feinberg at NBC Sports in Washington, DC.
As a Northern Virginia native, Mary could not be more excited to start her journalism career reporting on the teams she grew up watching. No matter their record, Mary is a Skins fan and takes pride in the art of "Griffining."
As a Virginia Tech Alumni - she's convinced maroon and orange match undoubtedly well (Hokie colors!).
Lacrosse runs in Mary's family and her sister Megan is a 4th year on the lacrosse team at the University of Virginia. The idea of being able to catch her games while working will be too fun.
