Having joined the KRLD news team in 2010, Marlee brings a lot of versatile experience from her 15 years in radio. She can be heard reporting and anchoring not only on KRLD but also on the Texas State Network News and is a familiar voice to listeners of KRLD’s sister station KVIL as a traffic reporter at times.
Marlee received a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from the University of Texas in Austin where she likes to say she “walked the same hallowed halls as the great Walter Cronkite”. She began her career in advertising, but got her first shot on-air when the owner of a small radio station in Weatherford convinced her that she should be on the other side of the mic. She soon realized it was her true passion to bring the story to the listener and spent the next 10 years as an investigative reporter/news anchor and morning show co-host on 95.9 The Ranch and Country Legends 92.1 in downtown Fort Worth. Marlee has covered important breaking news stories like the 2007 floods in Parker County where she was knee deep in the rising waters right along with the emergency crews trying to evacuate homeowners along the Brazos River. During her career she has covered several high profile criminal trials and was the only reporter granted an exclusive jail house interview with convicted serial killer and white supremacist Johnny Ray Smith. Marlee has also worked as a sideline reporter and co-host for the high school football program “50 Yard Line”.
When she’s not on the road or reporting, Marlee is a true Texas Cheer mom having raised four daughters that participated in school and competitive cheerleading squads in their hometown of Weatherford. Marlee enjoys being involved with her community, having served as a board member for Rotary and other civic organizations and PTA President at her children’s school. Her guilty pleasures are 80’s rock concerts and playing Fantasy Football.
