Katie Kuba

Katie Kuba

Editor Extraordinaire

Katie may have been born in a suburb of Philadelphia, but she moved to Buckhannon when she was just four years old, so Upshur County has always felt like home to her. She’s got a bachelor’s degree in English, a master’s in American Studies, and she loves cats. Katie has watched – and once owned on VHS – every single episode of the “I Love Lucy” show.


Monica Zalaznik

Rad Reporter

Upshur County native Monica Zalaznik is the newest member of the My Buckhannon team. She graduated from Marshall University with a bachelor’s degree in print journalism and a minor in history. In her spare time, she enjoys reading (a few favorite authors: Brandon Sanderson, Kevin Hearne and Anthony Ryan) and playing video games – especially “The Legend of Zelda.”

Beth Broschart

Beth Broschart

News Correspondent

Growing up in Randolph County, Beth started her reporting career the old-fashioned way: tapping out articles on a 1931 Underwood manual typewriter. She studied journalism at WVU and worked as a staff writer and correspondent for The Inter-Mountain and The Parsons Advocate. Beth enjoys the Buckhannon area and is excited to share people’s stories. Her favorite color is purple.
