Marissa Kargas is happy to now call Northwest Arkansas home.
She joined the KNWA team in October 2011, after graduating from San Diego State University with a degree in journalism and completing two internships with the NBC affiliate in San Diego.
Her passion is people and her desire to explore new places and learn new things is what keeps her motivated. Every day holds a different story, and that is something she truly loves about her job.
Marissa loves to slalom ski in Lake Chelan, sing and perform on stage, work in the yard, is a classically trained pianist and DIY-er! She loves date nights with her husband and going on adventures with their dog, Griffey. You will find her wearing Razorback red and Calling the Hogs here in the Natural State she loves. #WPS
Be sure to wake up with her weekday mornings starting at 5:00 a.m. on KNWA Today for your first look at Northwest Arkansas headlines! Follow her on Twitter, too!
