American television station WGN-TV is lucky to have Lourdes Duarte as its employee. This is so because Lourdes undoubtedly is a sincere, talented, dedicated and fully committed personality. Really, what can one ask for more? She is very passionate when it comes to her work and enjoys to the fullest of being a television journalist. That is the very reason why she has won some prestigious awards and made herself renowned among the viewers; thus setting herself apart from the rest of her contemporaries. Currently, she is working as an investigative reporter and co-host of the WGN News Evening News at 4 pm.
It was in the year 2007 that she joined the WGN-TV. At that time she joined it as a general assignment reporter. She got to anchor for the network in 2009 via a program called WGN News at Five. In this endeavor of hers, she was helped by her co-host Mark Suppelsa. Not only this show, but she also hosted a bi-weekly public affairs show called Adelante Chicago. Then in November 2012, she again added new changes to her life, that is, she began delivering news briefs in Spanish on weekday News.
However, her career in WGN-TV didn’t start right away after passing out from the college. She didn’t land in this station shortly after her graduation. For this, she had to gather experience from other stations too. Her professional journey began as a freelance reporter from Telemundo which is a Spanish television network. Then she also headed to other radio stations such as WLRN-FM and WTMI-FM in Miami. After working in those stations, she went to other stations to do the television news jobs at WHOI-TV in Peoria, WXIN-TV in Indianapolis and WJBK-TV in Detroit.
No matter how hard she had to struggle to reach where she is today, her hard work paid her back. Bitter were the days of her hardship, but equally sweet is the success that she is enjoying today. Her hardship paid her off in the form of the awards and the love, support she has experienced from her audience. Talking about the awards that she has bagged, she is the winner of the Emmy awards. Plus, she has also received Society of Professional Journalists Award.
When we scour her personal life, sadly we won’t find much information. Is she married is a question that many have been asking, but the answer to it is unknown. People are curious to know about her more up close. For this, they want to dig into the information concerning her wedding, husband, and children, but they are unsuccessful in this attempt.

Looking into her bio, one can find out that her date of birth is not provided anywhere. So we can't tell for sure what her age is. Also, the information leading to her height is missing. However, we can say that she was born and raised in Chicago to parents who belonged to Cuban roots. And she graduated from DePaul University.
