I've worked here at Fox19 since the debut of the Ten O'clock News in 1993. I worked my way up the ladder.. starting as a freelance reporter, then a full time reporter, weekend anchor, morning show host and in 1999 was promoted to the main anchor of the Ten O'Clock News.
Prior to television, I worked in radio, anchoring the midday news on 1530 WCKY-AM. There too, I had I wore many hats.. producer, board op, call screener and news anchor. I tell young people every day.. if you want to achieve something in life.. you have to work hard for it! As Abraham Lincoln said, "whatever you are, be a good one." I try.
I've covered a slew of local stories that have made headlines. I've also covered stories around the globe in Israel, Bosnia, Germany, the O.J. Simpson double murder trial, and the return of John Glenn into space. While you have to cover the tragedies that happen.. I've always loved to write stories that make people laugh, feel good or are in some way positive.
The real challenge of my life is juggling a demanding career with raising five children.. Katlynn, Spencer, Piper, Dash and Saylor. Like all you moms out there, I believe in multi-tasking. The four little ones are my biological children.. Spence is 8, Piper 7, Dash 4 and Saylor is 1... my 18-year old Katlynn, who will soon be attending NKU, was a gift from my sister Beth. She lost her battle with cancer in 2005 and asked me to raise her daughter.. I accepted. Katlynn completes the big family I always wished for.
I was born and raised in Newport, Kentucky. I am a 1987 alum of Newport Central Catholic and 1992 graduate of Northern Kentucky University. My husband Chris Macke is also a local guy, graduating from the University of Kentucky and Chase Law School. He is a patent attorney and general counsel.. and a great dad. My parents are still a neighborhood away and are the reason I can juggle everything.. Aren't parents the best?
I love to play sports.. basketball, volleyball, softball, golf, tennis. I coach, am a cafeteria volunteer, a room mom and a member of the PTA. I also am active in my community. I sit on many volunteer boards trying to make a difference where I can. Feel free to drop me an email. I'd love to hear from you.
