Maxine Rose joined the CBS21 News team in June 2023 as a Weekend Multimedia Journalist.
Like Joel D. Smith, Maxine is a Terp! She graduated from the University of Maryland in 2023 with a degree in Multiplatform Journalism and a minor in Law and Society.
During her time at UMD, she worked for several different student-run digital media and radio news organizations. She also had the unique opportunity of working right on Capitol Hill, just a short walk away from the Supreme Court, U.S. Capitol and Library of Congress, as a digital news reporter for Capital News Service, a news wire affiliated with the University of Maryland. She was an MMJ and anchor for Capital News Service’s TV news station as well, where she was able to hone her skills in broadcast journalism.
Maxine is also a member of NPPA, the National Press Photographer’s Association, and was a member of the UMD chapter.
Before going to Maryland for school, Maxine grew up in Needham, a town located right outside of Boston, Massachusetts. There, Maxine was a competitive dancer and a reporter for the high school’s newspaper.
In her free time, you could usually find Maxine either writing or reading. Her love of storytelling is what led her to knowing at a very early age that she was going to be a journalist. She knew that through her writing she would be able to help communities grow, be the voice of the voiceless and hold authoritative figures accountable.
Having been a dancer, Maxine understands the importance of working as a team to attain a common goal. She is thrilled to not only be working with the team at CBS21 News but also the local community, with the goal in mind of creating a place where everyone feels heard and understood.
