Closings & Delays

Hello! Born and raised in Harrisburg, I am thrilled to be broadcasting in my hometown market. Keep in mind, it took nearly 11 years and 5 states to make my way home to Central Pennsylvania…

In 2002, I graduated from Susquehanna Township High School and traveled to the state of Indiana where I quickly adapted to being a ‘Hoosier!’ At IU, I studied Broadcast Journalism and Theater and Drama. While in college, I interned in the Big Apple for Fox 5 “Good Day New York” and “Inside Edition.” After earning my Bachelor’s degree, I headed to the Northwoods of Wisconsin where I made my first mark in TV News. In addition to anchoring and reporting, I hosted a memorable segment called, “Reservations with Rebecca,” featuring popular restaurants and tempting foods within the area. From Wisconsin, I broadcasted in Toledo, OH, Knoxville, TN and most recently, Elmira, NY.

Some fun facts about me as a Journalist: I interviewed Brian Williams, Dr. Oz, Alex Trebek, and country stars Dierks Bentley, Eric Church and Little Big Town (to name a few). I am also a proud member of the National Federation of Press Women. I won a first place NFPW award for my exclusive interview with Dr. Oz on Male Body Image.

Some more fun facts about me: My pet child, Rizzo, is a spoiled rescue dog! She’s a 10 pound mini poodle crossed with spaniel and even some lab. I am a firm believer in helping to find homeless animals forever homes. I live a gluten free lifestyle which is actually not as hard as you may think because many chocolates are GF certified!! My hobbies include cooking, shopping, traveling, diving into a good novel and watching the latest hits on the big screen and stage. Running, spinning and circuit training are my favorite fitness activities. I ran a half-marathon in Rochester and hope to run more in the future! I am also an avid philanthropist who enjoys volunteering in spare time.

Now, I’d love to hear from you! If you’re wondering why I interviewed Brian Williams, want to find out more about Rizzo, or if you know of any tasty GF venues or recipes, feel free to email, tweet or facebook me!
