Christie Duffy is an award-winning reporter for PIX11.

Duffy follows in the footsteps of family, many of whom have worked in the TV business, beginning with her Grandfather.

She earned a team Emmy nomination for her Superstorm Sandy coverage. Duffy has also received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and the Garden State Journalists Association.

After a massive fire destroyed the Seaside boardwalk, she uncovered that most businesses on the block where the fire started never had their electrical wiring inspected after Sandy flooded the area. Investigators found that salt water had badly corroded wiring beneath the boardwalk, sparking the fire.

Duffy also uncovered the biggest federal crackdown on jitney buses in the region in 10 years. The exclusive story followed a freak accident in West New York, New Jersey, where a bus accident killed an infant in her stroller.

She also covered President Obama during a visit to New Jersey after Tropical Storm Irene; Governor Christie’s re-election in 2013; and the internationally-watched trial of former Rutger’s freshman Dharun Ravi.

Duffy joined PIX11 from New Jersey’s PBS affiliate, NJTV. Prior to that, she reported for Verizon FiOS1 News, and covered the financial markets. She began her career at Fox News Channel.

Duffy grew up in Bergen County, New Jersey. In the summer, she spends as much time as possible down the shore in Long Beach Island, NJ.

On her days off, she loves spending time with her family, friends and her dog Ted!
