A member of the publicity teams for both Investigation Discovery and American Heroes Channel, Baker has relentlessly pursued—and subsequently scored—press coverage for ID’s celebrity crime series “Is OJ Innocent?: The Missing Evidence” and the “American Murder Mystery” specials, all the while forging fruitful relationships with production partners and on-camera experts. At AHC, she has exhibited skillful management and support of the Red Bandanna Hero Award, a national contest to find an everyday hero who embodies the spirit of 9/11 hero Welles Crowther. The latter is something Baker’s especially proud of. “It is truly humbling to work so closely with the Crowther family, the incredible hero winners and our numerous partner organizations to celebrate his legacy,” she says.

Best piece of professional advice you’ve received?
The best piece of professional advice that I received was to listen! Be a sponge, take in everything. You can learn so much by listening and observing your peers.
What is your favorite app these days?
My favorite app is Instagram—I love seeing photos of my friends and family near and far! I follow a fair number of food bloggers on Instagram as well, so it’s a great way to scout new restaurants to try.
