Christian Heilman joined the WTAJ News Team in June 2014 as a reporter.

Christian grew up in the Pittsburgh area and graduated from Freeport High School in 2010. He attended Penn State University and completed internships with WPXI in Pittsburgh and ABC News in New York City.

During his time at Penn State, he was a part of the on-campus television station and the college’s Emmy award-winning Centre County Report. While there, some of Christian’s work placed seventh nationally in the Hearst Journalism Awards. His reporting also took him to Cuba with Penn State’s International Reporting class. There, he reported on the lack of internet connectivity on the island.

Christian is thrilled to call Central Pennsylvania home! If you have a story idea or just would like to say hello, feel free to email ( or visit his Facebookand Twitter.
