Marisa McKay joined 9 & 10 News in June of 2013 as a general assignment reporter out of the Traverse City Bureau. Originally from the Chicago suburbs, Marisa's family relocated to the Ann Arbor area 10 years ago, and Marisa has since called Michigan home.

Marisa attended the University of Michigan, and graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Communication Studies with a focus on journalism. During her college years, Marisa cheered on the Wolverines, worked for her student television station, and interned in the investigative unit at Chicago's NBC 5. 

After graduation, Marisa took a job at the CBS, FOX, and ABC affiliate in Alpena, Michigan. After a year on the Sunrise Side, Marisa made the move to Traverse City and is excited to be working for Northern Michigan's News Leader.

Marisa is thrilled to be living in one of the Midwest's most beautiful cities, and looks forward to life on Lake Michigan!
