Maddie McQueen

Maddie joined the CBS 42 team in March 2023, coming from her hometown of Lexington, KY where she worked at WTVQ as a multimedia journalist and anchor. Maddie is a 2021 graduate from the University of Georgia with bachelor’s degrees in journalism and sociology.

She had the honor of covering stories like the historic flooding across eastern Kentucky, exclusively riding along with an all-women’s Honor Flight from Lexington to Washington D.C. and providing 24-hour coverage of an officer involved shooting in eastern Kentucky.

When she’s not at work, Maddie loves cheering on the Dawgs, being outdoors hiking or kayaking, trying new restaurants and exploring the city, and binge-watching reality shows like The Circle, Survivor or the Bachelor/Bachelorette. She’s thrilled to be settling into the Magic City and can’t wait to meet more people in the community and tell their stories.
