Emmy Award-winning journalist, Delaine Mathieu, co-anchors News 4 WOAI at 5 p.m. weekdays with Randy Beamer.
Delaine comes to San Antonio from Miami where she co-anchored the top-rated morning newscast at WSVN. During her time there, she covered some of the nation's biggest news stories including the Elian Gonzalez saga, the 2000 Presidential Election debacle, the September 11th attacks, and the deadly 2004 hurricane season.
Delaine has received several awards, including four Emmy's, for her investigative reporting. Since she's been with News 4 WOAI, Delaine has been nominated for nine Emmy's and has won three Texas Associated Press awards for her reporting and anchoring. In 2009, one of her reports about a rotating bed used to help save H1N1 patients was featured on the NBC show, "The Doctors."
Delaine is passionate about news, but even more so about children. She serves on the board for ChildSafe
, a comprehensive clinic that helps young victims of sexual abuse in the San Antonio area and several surrounding counties. She is determined to raise awareness about San Antonio's child abuse problem. Her blog, Hell Is For Children
, has garnered national attention. She launched a county-wide child-abuse awareness campaign called All4One
. News 4 WOAI partnered with ChildSafe, Family Service Association, CASA and Christus Santa Rosa Children's Hospital to try to reach abused and neglected children in schools all over Bexar County.
During Delaine's senior year at the University of Texas at Austin, she was chosen for an internship at CNN's Washington D.C. Bureau. She also interned at News 4 WOAI. She landed her first job at KRBC in Abilene, then KEYE in Austin where she won a Best Reporting award from the Texas Association of Broadcasters. She also picked up a Best Anchor nomination from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters during her time at KAKE in Wichita, Kansas.
Most people don't know this, but Delaine is half Venezuelan. Her mother is from Caracas, Venezuela. In her spare time, Delaine loves to workout, cycle and run. She and her husband, Shad, have two daughters and are thrilled to call San Antonio home!
