Maureen Maher's Bio: Age, Career & Parents
49-year-old Maureen joined Bachelors of Arts and graduated with a degree in communication from the Loyola University.
She stepped into the realm of journalism as a news anchor for Chicago based WLUW (FM) back in 1991.
Afterward, she started working with WJBK-TV and WWJ-TV until 1995 and worked for CBS Newspath from 1997 to 2002. After that, she was signed as a news correspondent by CBS in 1999. She served as CBS news correspondent for three years and reported for CBS Evening News.
Later, in 2003, she landed as a host for CBS's widely recognized crime documentary and news program, 48 Hours Mystery. Since then, she has been working on the same program and garnering success.
As for her personal life, Maureen was adopted at birth. So her exact birth date remains unclear. She revealed about her adoption in an episode of 48 Hours that aired on 11th December 2009, where she stated that she was only curious about her biological parents when she was at the age of sixteen.
Her biological parents were high school seniors; she was given to Catholic Charities by her biological mother shortly after birth.
Maureen Reflects On Dreadful Case of 2016
In September 2018, Maureen reflected on a high-profile case that lingered for a long time in September 2016. The case revolved around a man shooting his wife in SUV, and questions were surrounding it being an accident or a murder.
It happened when Tex (the shooter) and Diane (his wife) were heading home after a long day of golfing, and a friend of theirs was driving. Tex says that he had an eerie feeling of being in a bad neighborhood so he asked his wife to hand him the revolver he had kept in the car's console and when he fell asleep, it went off shooting his wife.
Maureen talked with Tex's attorney Bruce Harvey who had the biggest challenge of solving the question whether it was an intentional action or an involuntary action based on an accident.
Maureen went to the extent of getting in contact with Diane's acquaintances to learn about Tex and Diane's relationship. Tex never knew how to explain the gun going off but in December 2016, the Atlantic Police Department concluded the shooting to be an unintentional act and Tex was charged with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.
But just four months after the good news, Tex was back behind bars when CBS 46 uncovered the evidence of Tex owing his wife $350,000 and provided enough evidence to charge him with the murder of his wife. It was surprising for Maureen to learn how the case leaped from an accident to a cold killing.
