Reporter/West Dakota FOX Anchor

Connect With Me


Hello! My name is Molly, and I'm very excited to be in the great state of North Dakota, which according to Yelp, is one of two Dakotas.

I hail from right outside Washington D.C., where I developed a love for politics at a young age. I spent a summer working on the hill, learning the ins and outs of our system of government.

My TV career began in high school, with a cable access talk show that only my grandma watched.

During my college years at American University, I worked as a web reporter for NBC Washington, covering restaurant openings, protests, and other things my grandma found interesting.

After graduation, I moved to Montreal, Canada for a year where I worked as a correspondent for a music podcast.

I then packed my bags for Europe, and became an elementary school English teacher in Paris, France. The kids were adorable, and very bad at English, which I now realize was probably my fault.

When my VISA ran up, I moved to San Francisco, California. There, I worked as a web producer for KRON 4 News, before accepting a writing job at KPIX 5.

While in San Francisco, I met the love of my life.
It's the oatmeal cookie ice-cream sandwich called It's-It. Forget the bridge and Alcatraz, go to San Francisco just to eat one.

I left the Bay Area to pursue my dream of being a reporter, which landed me here in Bismarck. I'm extremely excited to be here, and am grateful for the wonderful people I've met so far.
