Madeline Schmitt Career
Madeline Schmitt joined the KRQE News 13 team in June 2015 as a Reporter. In June 2017, she became the Weekend Evening Anchor/Reporter. Schmitt is a passionate TV journalist currently reporting and anchoring in Albuquerque, NM. Her skills go beyond on-air, though, with prior TV news writing, digital content producing and even some radio experience. She is also currently an aerial videographer (FLIR system, news helicopter). Madeline is an incredibly social media proficient and always eager to get to the next breaking news scene, but equally enjoys storytelling. Proud TCU Bob Schieffer School of Journalism grad!
Prior to moving to the Land of Enchantment, Madeline worked as a morning reporter at KXII-TV in Sherman, Texas. One of her most memorable moments reporting for “Texoma” was covering the annual gathering of roughly a dozen Medal of Honor recipients in Gainesville, Texas. Madeline met and talked with each of the heroes.
Madeline got her start in broadcast journalism working behind-the-scenes at KTVT-TV and as an intern at WFAA-TV, both in Dallas-Fort Worth. She earned her BA in Journalism at Texas Christian University… Riff Ram!
When she’s not on the anchor desk or out in the field reporting, Madeline is likely hanging with her cat, Leo, or trekking around New Mexico in her Jeep. She loves the state’s local cuisine and when it comes to ‘red or green?’ she chooses Christmas! Balloon Fiesta is Madeline’s favorite New Mexico tradition, by far.
