Here’s how you can help the victims of Hurricane Michael

Hello fellow Pennsylvanians! My name is Grace Griffaton, but you can call me anything local. I love local stories and helping the community. I began my journey with FOX43 at the start of the new year, 2017. Prior to FOX43, I reported and produced at the beach for WRDE-Delmarva’s NBC station. Although I love the beach, I am a true Pennsylvanian at heart – grew up in a small town near the Poconos and graduated Magna Cum Laude from La Salle University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication where I interned at Fox 29 on Good Day Philadelphia. Following graduation, I worked for WPMT’s sister station, WNEP, researching, writing, and editing stories, shooting, and learning the broadcasting ropes. I am so happy and humbled to be back in my home state and look forward to meeting you all. I love people because everyone has such a unique background and story to tell so feel free to reach out with your story because I want to tell it. Follow me on social media – Facebook: GraceGriffatonTV and Twitter: @GraceGriffaton… or email me your ideas: Ggriffaton@Fox43.com.
