Marie Cusick is a reporter with StateImpact Pennsylvania and WITF in Harrisburg.
She joined WITF from Albany, N.Y., where she worked as a multimedia reporter for WMHT. Her work was broadcast by public stations across New York as part of the Innovation Trail— a reporting collaborative between six stations. She appeared regularly on WMHT’s award-winning, statewide public affairs TV show, New York NOW. She also traveled throughout the state to cover some of New York’s biggest stories, including the devastation caused by Superstorm Sandy in New York City in 2012, the flooding from Tropical Storm Irene in the Catskills in 2011 and the debate in Albany over New York’s moratorium on fracking.
Marie was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and has previously worked as a reporter and anchor for television stations in Lancaster and Casper, Wyoming. Marie holds a degree in political science and French from Lebanon Valley College.
