Michelle Esteban KOMO
Esteban’s professional experience includes stints in Phoenix, Pittsburgh, and Steubenville, Ohio, before joining KOMO-TV. Michelle spent her childhood in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. When Esteban isn’t delivering stories, you can find her out on the golf course playing as much as she can. She freely admits to being a hacker.
Esteban is the proud recipient of ten awards for the Regional Emmys, including two for her work reporting on inflammatory breast cancer (IBC). This type of breast cancer is the most dangerous and potentially fatal one. Michelle found that the majority of patients had never heard of IBC until they were diagnosed with it. Moreover, her stories caused a domino effect of IBC reporting across the country, and in October of 2006, the first IBC Clinic in the nation opened in Houston, Texas. The founder of the Clinic stated that Michelle’s reporting helped to pave the way for the new clinic.
In 2008, Esteban was awarded the prestigious Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for her reporting that demonstrated how software could be used against you to listen in on your phone conversations as well as any conversations that took place in the immediate vicinity of your phone. Her report demonstrated how software could be used against you to spy on your cell phone even when it was turned off. In addition, Esteban was awarded the Regional Emmy for Best Reporter in both 2008 and 2010.
She was awarded two Emmys for her work on the Problem Solver Reports series, which chronicled the tale of James O’Neal, also known as “The Man with Half a Face.” O’Neal was born with a genetic disease that caused tumors to cover half of his face. Her reports told the narrative of O’Neal. James has made the courageous decision to never hide his disfigurement, and as a result, his uplifting narrative has inspired viewers to give money for reconstructive surgery.
As a result of her investigations into the risks associated with a certain toy (magnetic building sets), the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for 3.4 million Magnetix building sets. It was claimed by Esteban that the tiny magnets located inside the plastic building pieces and rods may easily fall out and that the magnets could be ingested or aspirated by young toddlers if they were detected by those young children. The investigation was kicked off by Michelle when she made the initial report that a toddler from Redmond who was only 20 months old had passed away after swallowing magnets that twisted his small intestine and caused a blockage.
Esteban is passionate about the wilderness of Washington and being on the water, as well as about practicing yoga, going on adventures, listening to show tunes and Frank Sinatra, and spending time with her family. She loves to cook and entertain and insists one of her favorite past times is eating good food and exploring Seattle restaurants.
