Born and raised in the Bronx, Marsha Augustin is a native New Yorker. She graduated from Fordham University with a B.A. in communications and received her M.S. in broadcasting journalism and digital media from Newhouse at Syracuse University in 2020.
Marsha had dreams of becoming a reporter since childhood. She is a news junkie and is passionate about delivering news to the community that is informative and resourceful to people’s lives.
After graduating from S.U., Marsha landed her first job as a reporter/anchor at WENY News. She covered stories in Elmira, Corning and the entire Southern and Northern Tier regions. She won a NYS Journalist Broadcasting award for her coverage on a story where residents didn’t have water for days in Hornell.
Marsha enjoys giving back to the community and volunteered for the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital in NYC.
She also loves to travel, especially to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia to visit family.
Marsha is thrilled to still be in New York living out her dream as a journalist in Rochester, while learning more about her new home and engaging with her audience.
You can catch Marsha reporting weeknights at 11 p.m. and weekends anchoring at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.
