Marcel Clarke joins the KFOX 14 Morning News team as the overnight reporter. She will be out in the field while you are sleeping to get you the latest updates on what is going on in your community.
What piqued her interest into the news world? When she lived in California, she and her family went through a small earthquake and she noticed that everyone turned to their local news for more information.
Since that night, Marcel was amazed by how one news team could help so many people with information during a time of need.
Marcel is not new to the borderland. She attended Hornedo Middle School and graduated as a T-bird from Coronado High School. She later took her first steps into her journalism career at the Missouri School of Journalism.
In Columbia, Missouri, Marcel grew as a reporter, anchor and multimedia journalist for three years at NBC affiliate KOMU-TV. She used her multimedia journalism to dig deeper into the community and help share people's concerns, injustices and heartwarming stories.
In those three years, her stories varied from covering political stories in Jefferson City to health and education in schools and, of course, investigative stories.
Marcel joined the Target 8 Investigates team during her last year at Mizzou, where she got to dig deeper and expose corruption in Columbia and even in Saint Louis County.
Marcel is constantly on Twitter or Facebook and would love to hear your feedback and story ideas you would like to share.
She looks forward to getting in touch with the growing Sun City once again and getting closer to her community.
