Since October 2011, Natalie has been out in the field reporting, behind the desk anchoring, and even done her best to bring you the latest weather forecast. She is thrilled to be working so close to her hometown of Pittsburgh and, although not a native of the Youngstown area, she has come to love the Valley as if she were.
Some of her favorite stories she’s done since coming to WKBN/WYTV have been a church pastor surprising a woman and her children with a furnished house on Youngstown’s south side, a massive car pile-up on Interstate 80 during a blizzard, the New Year’s Eve earthquake of 201, a young man paralyzed in a motorcycle accident determined to ride again and a local veteran raising awareness about her service dog. She has also had the chance to talk to First Lady Michelle Obama via satellite.
From an early age, Natalie knew the news bug had bitten her. A graduate of Ohio University’s Scripps School of Journalism, she spent two years anchoring, producing and reporting in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula before returning to the region where she grew up.
While the news business is always uncertain, Natalie definitely wouldn’t mind making this area her permanent home.
