Marissa is excited to be a part of the WETM 18 News team as an Anchor, Producer and General Assignment Reporter. She joined the newsroom in June 2012.
Marissa is a Chicago-girl, born and bred. She is thrilled to start her broadcast career in the Twin Tiers, and call it her new home.
Marissa started her reporting career not far from the Twin Tiers at Syracuse University, where she graduated with a B.S. in Broadcast Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. She was News Director of the student run television station and anchored a weekly live broadcast. Marissa also interned for two summers at WCBS-TV in New York.
One of Marissa’s favorite past times is traveling. This includes spending a semester abroad living and working in London, U.K and seeing some of Europe’s beautiful sights.
When she isn’t being a full-time ‘newsie,’ you can find Marissa spending time with family and friends, working out, hitting the Upstate New York ski slopes, rooting for the Syracuse Orange or discovering all the hidden gems that the Twin Tiers has to offer.
