Natalie Kucko

Natalie Kucko joined the News 8 team in June 2022 as an anchor and reporter. After a few years of reporting in Rochester, Natalie is excited to continue telling the stories of her hometown. 

Natalie’s love for news emerged at WROC, where she spent much of her childhood shadowing reporters and anchors as they put together the nightly newscasts. 

Natalie is a graduate of Our Lady of Mercy High School and a 2017 graduate of St. Bonaventure University with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication. While at St. Bonaventure, Natalie helped lead the news departments for the campus radio and TV stations. 

Prior to moving back home to Rochester, Natalie spent three years at WWNY-TV 7/Fox 28 in Watertown, New York as a reporter and weekend anchor. There, she earned a NYS Associated Press honor for “Continuing Coverage” on 2019’s Lake Ontario flooding. 

When she’s not in the newsroom, Natalie enjoys spending time with family and friends, listening to live music, and rooting for the Buffalo Bills and Boston Red Sox. If you have a story idea or just want to say ‘hello,’ email Natalie at or follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
