Marissa Sulek joined WQAD as an MMJ in July 2018.  Since then she’s had the opportunity to fill-in anchor as well.

She graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as an advertising major.  

Born and raised in Park Ridge, IL – a northwest suburb of Chicago – she loves that the Quad Cities are close to home for some Lou Malnati’s and a visit to Sally, her family’s Great Pyrenese and Lab mix.  

She is happy to call the Quad Cities home. While at WQAD, she covered the flood of 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic, and of course some fun “feel-good” stories to brighten viewers days.

Catch her on News 8 Monday through Friday on the 5PM and 6PM newscasts, or running around the QC – she ran her first marathon in the QC last September and is looking forward to the Chicago Marathon in October 2020.
