Zoraida Sambolin
Anchor/Reporter, NBC5 News

Zoraida Sambolin is the Weekday Edition co-anchor of NBC5 News Today. She rejoined NBC5 in 2014 after spending two years at CNN. The morning news anchor originally joined WMAQ in 2002 and began reporting for Telemundo the following year.

As the first Chicago on-air broadcaster to work at both English and Spanish language stations simultaneously, she has broken new ground for Latinos in the No. 3 market in the country. Prior to joining NBC5, Zoraida was the creator and Emmy award-winning host of “Small Talk for Parents” on WYCC-TV and “Nuestros Ninos” on WSNSTV. Prior to that, she was the director of broadcasting for the Chicago City Colleges.

Zoraida is committed to helping Autism Speaks raise awareness about the growing epidemic of Autism across the country and has volunteered her time and talents to the cause. She also volunteers her time for a number of Chicago-area organizations like the Anti-Defamation League, where she recently moderated a panel on the crisis in Darfur; and the Puerto Rican Alliance where she serves on an advisory Board.


The Abby Foundation was named after the late first lady Abigail Adams who realized the great potential of women. She understood that women should have a voice in decisions regarding this great nation. A proponent of the passage of women's right to vote, she made great strides in the pursuit of women's fundamental rights - liberties that we often take for granted.

A nonprofit group, the Abby Foundation’s goal is to raise yearly funds that benefit women and children in the South and Southwest Suburbs of Chicago. For 29 years, the grassroots group has hosted an August luncheon that raises more than $50,000 each year. That money is distributed in two ways: college scholarships to south suburban women and grants to local existing organizations that assist women and children.
