Natalie Kucko joined the news team as a reporter in May 2017.
Natalie was born and raised in Rochester, New York. She graduated from St. Bonaventure University with a B.A. in journalism and mass communication in May 2017. At Bonaventure, Natalie was involved with the student-run television station, SBU-TV, where she served as an anchor, reporter and producer.
