The Baltimore, Maryland native Sade Baderinwa whose real name is Folasade Olayinka Baderinwa is a well known German American news anchor at New York’s WABC Channel 7.

She is the weekday co-anchor for 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. editions of Eyewitness News with Bill Ritter.


Baderinwa was born in Baltimore, Maryland on April 14, 1969. She is 50 years old as of 2019.


Baderinwa is a daughter to a Nigerian (Yoruba) and a German mother. Her first name, “Folasade”, means “Honor confers a crown”.


Baderinwa was rumored that she had an affair with Martin O’Malley the then-current governor of Maryland, and it pulled her into a big scandal for a long-long time. However, none of them confirmed the rumors.

Baderinwa has managed to keep her love life private and it’s therefore not known whether she is married or not.

For her position as an anchor WABC, Baderinwa receives an annual salary of around $1 million. She has accumulated a net worth of $5 million U.S dollars.


Before joining WABC, Baderinwa was working in her hometown of Baltimore, Maryland, where she anchored the news on WBAL-TV for nearly three years.

At WABC, she was the anchor of the noon broadcasts before being promoted to 5 p.m. with Diana Williams. On October 27, 2006, she appeared on The View as a guest co-host.

Baderinwa became the 11 p.m. news co-anchor alongside Bill Ritter, where she replaced Liz Cho, who left that slot to anchor the new WABC 4 p.m newscast. She continues to anchor the 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. news.


Baderinwa underwent multiple surgeries due to an accident where she was struck by a hit and run driver while preparing a report on location in Hackensack, New Jersey about local flooding on July 23, 2004. Baderinwa later returned to Eyewitness News on December 13, 2004, after months of recovery and physical therapy.
