Upshur County native Monica Zalaznik is excited to be the newest member of the My Buckhannon team. She joined in January 2018 after graduating from Marshall University with a bachelor’s degree in print journalism and a minor in history.
But Monica’s interest in journalism isn’t limited to the written word. She enjoys delivering information in a variety of formats, including radio and podcasts.
Monica grew up in Buckhannon, where she attended Tennerton Elementary School and Buckhannon-Upshur middle and high schools. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, and some of her favorite authors include Brandon Sanderson, Kevin Hearne and Anthony Ryan. She also loves playing video games – especially “The Legend of Zelda” – and all the Harry Potter books.
