ConsumerWatch Award Winning Consumer, Business and Investigative Reporting
Julie's ConsumerWatch Reports air locally on KPIX in San Francisco and KCAL/KCBS in LA. They also air nationally on CBS, CNN as well as on various CBS affiliates across the country.
She covers two different stories each evening, ranging in topic from the consumer and business news of the day to undercover investigations and resolving viewer problems.
Julie's reporting has prompted FDA recalls, federal investigations, and has forced national corporations to cease illegal business practices. She also examines consumer trends and the impact of new products.
Her work has earned multiple Emmy, AP and RTNDA Awards. RTNDA judges called a 2011 compilation "a pleasure to watch and judge. It had everything: great production, first rate journalism, and solid story telling. This market is lucky to have this kind of reporting."
One of Julie’s recent investigations prompted a major insurer to reverse its denial of flood coverage. Previous investigations have uncovered everything from lead in consumer products to illegal practices at Public Storage.
On the ConsumerWatch, Julie has also recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for viewers and resolved countless consumer problems. If you have a consumer problem, call the ConsumerWatch hotline at 888-5-HELPS-U.
