Marlena joined the KETK news team in January 2013. She was raised in Orange County, California before attending the University of Arizona, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and minored in both Political Science and Psychology.

While at UA, Marlena developed her trade on a morning talk show called the Tucson Morning Blend. She also interned at three news stations in Tucson covering breaking news stories such as Congresswoman Gabby Giffords' tragedy, immigration issues on the border of Arizona and Mexico and Occupy Tucson.

She started her TV broadcasting career in the Northeast Michigan town of Alpena. During her time there, Marlena anchored, reported, produced and even did a little weather on the green wall.

Marlena is excited to be back in the warm weather delivering the news to East Texans. If you have a story idea or just want to get in touch, email Marlena at
