She has become one of the most award-winning reporters in the state of New York.

Rosenblum's passion is diving into breaking, political, and investigative news stories and she has traveled the county, state, and the country to tell them. She has covered the Virginia Tech Massacre, the 2008, 2012 and 2016 presidential races, and Hurricane Katrina. Rosenblum's coverage of the ravaged Gulf Coast led to sizable donations from across the Hudson Valley and prompted a local village to adopt a church in Algiers. Months later, Westchester County recognized Rosenblum's efforts by naming a day in her honor.
To date, Rosenblum has had 8 days named in her honor in communities across New York. In addition, she was honored by the Guidance Center of Westchester, the Rockland Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, The Alliance for Safe Kids, and the New Rochelle chamber of commerce for her in-depth coverage on the heroin and synthetic marijuana outbreak.

One of Rosenblum's stories even won the New York Festivals International 'Grand Award.'
Rosenblum was a 2005 Walter Cronkite political fellow and spends much of her time producing, writing and reporting News 12's political coverage. Rosenblum has interviewed presidents, governors, and reported live from state and national political conventions.
