Reporter/anchor Payton Marshall
Payton Marshall is a nightside reporter who joined FOX19 NOW in December 2021.
She is thrilled to be back home! Marshall started her career as a reporter and fill-in anchor at FOX 45/ABC 22 in Dayton.
Marshall is an Ohio native, growing up in the Cincinnati area where she graduated from Mount Notre Dame high school and cheered for Archbishop Moeller high school (GO BIG MOE!).
She is an avid sports fan, having cheered throughout her childhood and high school years and also at the collegiate level while attending Wittenberg University.
Marshall completed her freshman year of collegiate studies at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles, California. She transferred to Wittenberg University during her sophomore year and graduated in 2017 with a B.A. in theatre and dance.
Marshall graduated in 2019 at the University of Cincinnati with her second degree in Journalism and digital broadcast news. During her time at UC, she completed internships with WKRC-TV in Cincinnati, WRTV6 in Indianapolis and co-hosted “Backstage Live!” for the Ohio Valley Emmy Awards. In addition, she was also nominated for two Ohio Valley Chapter Regional Student Production Awards in 2019.
Some of Marshall’s most memorable stories include covering the 2020 presidential election and her investigation on Ohio House Bill 308.
She comes from a law enforcement family. Marshall’s grandfather was a twice-retired chief of police in Woodlawn. Her father is currently a detective for the West Chester Police Department. Being surrounded by first responders has shaped her as a person and molded her as a journalist.
Marshall has a passion for stories that bring about mental health awareness, especially in regard to accessibility for first responders. When away from the station, Marshall enjoys Yoga, running local races, and dancing whenever the music strikes.
