I am closing in on 20 years at
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
Prior to television, I worked in
radio, anchoring the midday news on 1530 WCKY-AM. I tell young people every
day that 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.
When I'm away from the station, I
am with my family. I have five wonderful 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 12,
Piper 11, Dash 8 and Saylor is 6 and my 23-year old Katlynn, was a gift from my
sister Beth. She lost her battle with cancer in 2005 and I am raising her
daughter. Five is a good number… It's like having my own basketball team!
I was born and raised in Newport, Kentucky. I am a 1987 alum of Newport Central
Catholic and 1992 graduate of Northern Kentucky University. I worked my way
through college by juggling three and four jobs at a time and graduated without
owing one penny!
My husband Chris Macke is also a local guy made
good, graduating from the University of Kentucky and Chase Law School. He is a
patent attorney, one of the smartest people I know and he's a great
I love to play sports; basketball, volleyball, softball, golf and tennis. I volunteer at school, work cafeteria. I'm on a slew of
boards and take part in charity events on a regular basis.
In my spare time, I started a
basketball organization called the KY Royals and coach several outstanding
basketball teams. I teach kids hard work, teamwork, self confidence and
the fundamentals but also focus on good grades, community service and
My 5th grade girls KY Royals
basketball team is the 2012 and 2013 AAU Division 1 State Champions and the
Division 1 AAU National Runner Up.
The Royals are the ONLY team in
the state of KY to have ever finished that high in the National Div. 1 AAU
Feel free to drop me a line to
talk news, kids, sports or whatever else is on your mind!
