She worked at the station as a writer in 1997. After a stint in the midwest, she returned to KYW in 1999 as a reporter, anchor, and editor, staying for three more years.
Now, she’s excited for a third go-round at Philadelphia’s news powerhouse.
Marcy grew up in Amsterdam, NY, in the foothills of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains.
She graduated from the Roy H. Park School of Communications, at Ithaca College, with a bachelor of science degree in television and radio, with a concentration in broadcast journalism and a minor in politics. While in college, she spent a semester at Ithaca College’s London Center, completing an internship with BBC Television. She also traveled extensively to many European cities, including to what was then East Berlin, and to the USSR.
Marcy’s journalism career started in high school, when she served as a student editor for her hometown newspaper. She also spent several summers there as a reporter/intern.
Her radio career began right out of college, when she was hired by FSR/PAC 93 radio in Ogdensburg, NY. Next, she worked a reporter and anchor at WILM Newsradio, in Wilmington, Del., and served as a radio news anchor at Metro Networks, in Philadelphia, before joining KYW for the first time.
During a brief move to the Midwest, she was a business and county politics reporter for the Rock Island Argus, in Rock Island, Ill.
From 2002 to 2014, Norton was an anchor for the Wall Street Journal Radio Network, providing network reports for hundreds of stations around the country throughout the economic crisis and recovery, and providing custom reports for stations in major cities.
She returned to KYW Newsradio when the WSJ Network ceased operations late last year.
Over the years, her honors have included “best radio anchor” in 1996 and 1997 from the National Federation of Press Women, and first place awards for public service reporting from the Philadelphia Press Association, Philadelphia Society of Professional Journalists, and Pennsylvania Associated Press Broadcasters.
Marcy enjoys running, cake decorating, and gardening, and lives in Bucks County with her two sons and their cat, Leonidas.
