Cameron O’Brien is a Multimedia Journalist and Anchor at NEWS CENTER Maine in Portland, Maine specializing in emotional, community-centric stories.
Before coming to Portland, Cameron worked as a Multimedia Journalist/Anchor at WKBN-TV in Youngstown, Ohio.
In June of 2018, Cameron covered an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid in Salem, Ohio that resulted in the arrest of over 100 suspected undocumented workers.
In November 2016, Cameron reported on The Ohio State University stabbing that left one dead and eleven injured.
Cameron covered Ohio’s heroin crisis in depth; in September 2016, she reported on a picture that went viral out of East Liverpool: two parents who overdosed in their car with their child in the backseat.
Cameron anchored, reported, and co-produced two half-hour specials on black history in the Mahoning Valley called “Hidden History”.
Cameron is a graduate of Cornell University. She majored in sociology, with a specialty in inequality studies.
Cameron is a massive foodie with a nasty set of food allergies (gluten, dairy, and soy). So, when she’s not working, you can probably find her trying out allergy-friendly food spots around town or cooking up something at home. She loves being active- so you might spot her hanging outdoors (wearing sunscreen, of course), in a boxing ring, or in a yoga class. She loves to travel, too.
Cameron lives in Portland with her fiancé, Alex, and their three cats: Malcolm X and Nina Simone, the black cats, and George Harrison, the deaf, mute, and toothless tabby.
