Raquel Harrington joined KY3 News team in September 2018 as a Multimedia Journalist.
She loves snow and is no stranger to the crazy weather in the Midwest. Raquel was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, where her love of journalism sparked. She followed that love and graduated with a bachelor's in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Multimedia Design, Production & Technology from Central Michigan University.
Raquel is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and the National Association of Black Journalists. She has a passion for storytelling, volunteering, helping underserved youth, and making people smile.
From conducting live interviews on rollercoasters to holding pythons on live television, Raquel will try or do anything. You can catch her on your screens saying good morning twice on Ozarks Today Thursday-Sunday.
Although she hates bugs, you can find Raquel exploring trails when she's not on screen. You'll also probably see her at the movies, shopping, or trying new foods around Ozarks.
