Marlo came to Northwest Louisiana from New Orleans, LA, where she started her broadcast production career at Cox 10/Cox Sports Television, where she was part of the Suncoast Emmy Award-winning team for the lifestyle docuseries LA Verite (Louisiana True). She pivoted slightly from local origination programming to digital marketing as a copywriter and digital video producer at Brock Beauty. At Brock, she contributed to creating national campaigns for marketing, promotions, and industry events. She also crafted the brand’s “Happy Hair Stories,” a campaign centered on the user’s experience with the products.
Always eager to try something new, Marlo switched from private industry to the public sector as a digital communications specialist with the Jefferson Parish Public School System. While in JP Schools, her team was charged with bridging the divides between district administration and schools, creating opportunities for public engagement with district employees, including the superintendent and district leadership team, and increasing transparency. Their work was awarded by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA)
Marlo moved from the bayou in 2020 and is eager to learn and experience Shreveport and other areas served by KTALnews.com. She is excited to be part of the KTAL NBC 6/ FOX 33 / KSHV 45 Digital team and looks forward to hearing your story ideas!
