Since I was old enough to talk, I’ve been asking questions. I’ve always had a passion for getting to know others and telling their stories. Now, I’m blessed to call it my career. 

I am a Midwest girl born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. If you see me wearing red or blue, it’s because I live and breathe for St. Louis sports! Go Cardinals and Blues!

I graduated from Lindenwood University in St. Charles with a degree in broadcast journalism and a Master’s degree in digital content strategy. While in school, I gained hands on experience at our school station LUTV. I started as a sideline reporter for our schools sports network, then found my true calling in news, driven by a purpose to uncover local native stories close to home.

During my last two years at Lindenwood, I took an internship with KMOV News 4 and Fox 2 News in St. Louis. Shadowing reporters, write scripts, and editing video, all while learning from some of the best in the business. I’m so grateful for the experience and memories I gained. 

After graduating from Lindenwood, I spent two years at KCAU 9 News in Sioux City, Iowa. Major events that I was able to cover were historic flooding in 2019, the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 2020 Iowa Democratic Presidential caucuses. I’m excited for the next chapter in my career here at CBS 42.

When I’m not at work, you can find me with a cup of coffee in one hand and an ice cream cone in the other. I’m excited to call Alabama my new home away from home. If you have any story ideas feel free to reach out to me! Mbach@cbs42.com.
