Elijah Baker- News Anchor/Reporter

Elijah Baker is from Southfield, Michigan. He believes in building relationships in local communities, focusing on story telling, and delivering informational content via broadcasting and social media platforms. Baker attended Wayne State University.  At first, he believed a life behind the badge was the right career path. Instead, the practice arrests and boot camps inspired him to tell stories instead of enforce the law. That was Baker’s “ah-hah” moment to pursue broadcast journalism.

As a multimedia journalist, Baker had numerous opportunities. He began his journey, studying political journalism through the Fund for American Studies in 2016. He continued his passion as a Special Projects Unit Intern. He logged, interviewed, and shadowed reporters at WDIV-TV in Detroit in 2017. Now, Baker is the Weekend News Anchor/Reporter at WBKB-11 in Alpena, Michigan. Currently, he is producing, editing and filming (most) of his own content in Alpena, Michigan.

Beyond the airwaves, Baker is a cook enthusiastic! He developed a nickname for himself in the newsroom as “Big Hungry.” despite his lean physique. Baker also enjoys outdoor activities, reading and pumping weights at the gym.
