Teresa Dufour is the morning traffic reporter for WTNH News 8’s Good Morning Connecticut which has over 650,000 viewers per day. WTNH is the top-rated news station in the New Haven marketplace (28th in the United States).

When the morning newscast is over, Teresa switches gears and hosts CT Style, a lifestyle program featuring guests ranging from authors to accountants to artists. Teresa leads cooking segments, features musical groups, explores fashion and design trends, and covers hot topics that affect our communities.

Teresa has been working in the news and entertainment industry since 2003. She started off behind the camera, and worked her way up from the assignment desk to the news desk.

After Teresa graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2001 with her bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism, she worked at a variety of radio stations throughout the state. She anchored and reported daily newscasts for KISS 95.7 and Westwood One Radio Network. 

In 2004, Teresa got her big great break when she was offered a job in Monroe, Louisiana. She packed up her bags and moved to the Pelican state to become a reporter and anchor for KTVE and KARD.  She became the quintessential Louisiana reporter, enjoying the culture, lifestyle and even hosting the local Mardi Gras parade. But she also covered some very serious news stories, including the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina that devastated the area.

When she was offered a job back in her home state in 2006, Teresa jumped at the chance. WFSB Channel 3 hired Teresa as their morning traffic reporter and correspondent on Better Connecticut, a daily lifestyle show. Then in 2010 Teresa made the career move to WTNH where she is today.

A native of Middlebury, Teresa is very proud of her close-knit Italian family. She is very close to father (a local podiatrist), her mother (an elementary school teacher), her younger brother (a youth social worker) and younger sister (her best girlfriend!). On New Years Eve of 2013, Teresa said yes to her husband, Brandon Dufour. Brandon is an award winning entrepreneur, leading companies like All-Star Driver and All-Star Easy Marts.
