OKLAHOMA CITY–KFOR NewsChannel 4 is excited to welcome Marianne Rafferty back to Oklahoma. She returns to the Sooner State to join Lance West on the anchor desk weekdays at 4:00, 5:00 and 6:30 p.m.
Rafferty studied at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky and got her first break in television at KZTV-TV in Corpus Christi, Texas. She moved on to the ABC station in Oklahoma City for three years before joining FOX News Channel as an anchor and reporter.
“I left Oklahoma City to be a network correspondent. Now, I feel like I’m coming home,” said Rafferty.
Marianne grew up in Beeville, Texas ranch where her parents moved after her father retired from the Air Force. There, Marianne helped raise cows and horses. She was even a member of the 4-H club. She loves animals, but her passion is journalism.
Rafferty is married to Ian and they have a three-year-old son named Devin.
“Oklahoma is a great place for families. I love it here, the people are so friendly. I know my husband and son will enjoy it as much as I do,” said Rafferty.
