Marianne McClary</strong> <ol> <li>Where did you grow up? Seattle, Washington</li> <li>What is your ideal scenario for a day off? Spa day! I’ve often thought that if I didn’t end up in TV, I would be a mystery reviewer for the spa industry. I’m very particular.</li> <li>How did you decide to be a reporter/anchor? By accident! I was a business major but needed three credits to keep getting financial aid – and an “Intro to Radio” course fit the bill. My professor talked me into taking the follow-up course, which had us produce a radio special on education – and I was hooked!</li> <li>What was your favorite toy growing up? I loved board games. “Park And Shop” is one of my favorites – it’s seriously all about running errands. My whole life is based on this game. To this day, if I get my errands done in a hyper-efficient manner, I’ll tell my sisters, “GREAT ‘Park and Shop’ day today!!”—and they know exactly what I mean.</li> <li>Where is your favorite local place to eat? Kind of a fan of Lido Café in Carmichael. If hubby’s out of town, I’ll hunker down there and drag out a long breakfast all by myself. Plus, the cinnamon rolls! Oh!</li> <li>Do you have any pets? We have one kitty, Suki – we just lost his brother, Mushi, in March. We sure miss him – but Suki is entertainment enough for a whole litter. :)</li> <li>What is your favorite social media platform?

I have a thing for organizing, and construction projects, so I think I’d be a house flipper, or stager, or something to do with making homes pretty again and decluttering! Don’t get near my toolbelt!</li> <li>What is the most memorable story you’ve covered at CBS13/CW31? One of the most amazing actually came from a friend of mine – her husband donated a kidney to his father, so she decided to donate one – to a complete stranger! She just had to find someone who needed one, who was a match. A friend of hers happened to be on a treadmill at a gym and struck up a conversation with the woman next to her – whose sister needed a kidney transplant. My friend turned out to be a perfect match. Seriously, what are the chances of that?? I just saw them both last month and they’re doing great, six years later!</li> <li>What is your favorite season? Fall. Next question.</li> <li>Who is the fellow reporter/anchor you text the most? Probably Julissa Ortiz only because I’m forced to respond.</li> <li>When do you wake up on a workday? Weekend? Workdays, 3 am. Weekends, about 6:30 or 7 – but I love that time of day – quiet, cool and cozy with a cup of coffee and Suki until hubby wakes up.

Trees, flowers, two rivers, wine country, mountains, what’s not to love?</li> </ol> BONUS QUESTIONS: <ol> <li>Where was your best vacation ever? Scott and I went to the U.S. Virgin Islands about two years ago, before the hurricanes hit. It was beautiful, and the short plane trip to St. Barts is the craziest plane ride you’ve ever taken – but our $35 hamburger at Eden Rock was worth it. We had such a great time. He followed up with our hosts to see how they fared in the storms, and it’s wonderful to hear that they’re rebuilding.</li> <li>Favorite sport to watch in person? On TV? Gotta go with the Seattle Seahawks (sorry, 9ers fans) – I thought I was going to lose my mind during those Super Bowls. Seahawks? In the SUPER BOWL???? At least they won one of them.</li> <li>Favorite TV show? Movie? TV: “Modern Family”. I came late to the party but those guys KILL me. They’re all hysterical. I REALLY want Haley and Andy to get together in this upcoming last season and I know I’m not the only one. Movie: “Miracle on 34<sup>th</sup> Street”, the original with Maureen O’Hara and Natalie Wood. It’s so cute, no one dies, and heck, it’s Christmas!!! I’ve still got it on my DVR from last year – and it’s not going ANYWHERE.</li> </ol>   Email: <a href=""></a> Twitter: <a href="!/GoodDayMarianne">@GoodDayMarianne</a>

See the bright opportunity in each new day.” Dina Kupfer is thrilled to be a part of the CBS13/Good Day Sacramento morning family! <strong>Follow Dina on <a href="">Twitter,</a> <a href="">Facebook,</a> and <a href="">Instagram</a> </strong> Dina is an Emmy Award-winning journalist and a proud University of Oregon alumna (Go Ducks)! She spent most of her younger years in northern California and Reno, Nevada. As a child, her dad's retail management job took their family all over the Golden State, from Shingle Springs to Sacramento to Vacaville, and to Susanville. Most of her family is now in Reno, and that is where she started her journalism career at KRNV as a sports/news anchor/reporter and weather forecaster. Dina spent the last five years anchoring and reporting at another Sacramento station, and she is honored to continue telling the stories of our wonderful Northern California community at here at CBS13/Good Day Sacramento. “I get it, not everyone wakes up in the middle of the night like us! That’s why I work very hard to connect with our viewers on multiple social platforms. I am a firm believer that the story isn't finished when it's posted online – often times that is where the narrative begins. I read every comment, tweet, and message, and I try to respond in a timely fashion. I love telling stories that get you thinking, provide solutions and leave our audience feeling informed.” Dina and her husband, Robbie, love to go on outdoor adventures. When she’s not at work, you can catch her skiing in the Sierra, wakeboarding on Lake Berryessa or hiking and mountain biking the beautiful trails around the region. She also finds gardening and doing the dishes therapeutic. Dina and her hubby have two fur babies, French Bulldogs Brewski and Barley. Yes, they snore…loudly…but Dina says it’s like music to her ears at night. :) If you have any recommendations for adventures or story ideas, send them Dina’s way!

Lemor AbramsLemor Abrams is an Emmy-Award winning news reporter, who has interviewed thousands of people, from key political figures to everyday folks who impact their community. Her very first interview was with a former political prisoner, and her most memorable story tracked the life of a five-year-old boy on his journey to beat a rare form of cancer. Today, Lemor reports on major issues facing Californians, from the state’s water crisis to its combustible wildfire season. Twitter: <a href="" target="_top">@LemorAbrams</a> Email: <a href="" target="_top"></a> Instagram: <a href="" target="_top">LemorAbrams</a> Lemor’s story begins in Southern California, where she was born and raised. It’s also where she got her start in TV News, first “behind the scenes” for the CBS/KCAL duopoly in L.A., and on camera at various L.A. cable stations including Santa Monica Television, Hawthorne, and El Segundo City News. Lemor moved on to continue her journalism dream in Reno, NV., at the NBC affiliate KRNV, where she broke her first big story about a county employee embezzling millions of dollars from the county’s water resources department. She also had the opportunity to interview former President Bill Clinton about the county’s infrastructure, when he visited a small town that was flooded after a levee broke. Lemor soon returned to California, but this time to another avenue of news: online news. Lemor did voice over and field producing work for Yahoo! News and traveled up and down the West Coast for stories. From there, Lemor pursued a new general assignment reporting gig in Fresno, CA., where she covered a lot of agriculture stories! for CBS affiliate KGPE. Lemor is a proud Bruin! She studied political science, communications, and media at the University of California, Los Angeles. She was also a reporter for the University’s television station, Bruin News 29! A school trip to Jerusalem with students from around the world broadened her perspective and appreciation for faith. It also motivated Lemor to sharpen her Hebrew. (She now speaks it fluently). Upon her return from the Holy Land, Lemor helped her family open a House of Worship in Woodland Hills, CA. Beit Avraham continues to provide food and shelter to members of the community in need. Lemor is also a dancer, yogi, foodie, and traveler. She has traveled all over Europe, and the Middle East, and especially loved floating in the Dead Sea, hiking the Masada at sunrise, and getting married in the historic city of Cesaria. But her greatest accomplishment is her son, Matthew. Born in Sacramento, CA. Where Lemor now calls home. #sacpride!
Cambi BrownBorn and raised in Elk Grove, Cambi attended Sacramento State and began her broadcasting career right here. As an intern at Good Day Sacramento, she knew she wanted to someday return as a reporter, and has been able to do just that on Good Day and CBS13. With some help from some amazing people at the station, many who still work here, she landed her first on-air job in Yuma, Arizona. She realized you can take the girl out of California, but you can’t take California out of the girl. Most recently she returned to The Golden State, working on a morning show in Bakersfield. Her “Cambi on the go” franchise there allowed her to do a lot of things from skydiving to joining the circus. Despite Cambi’s mom and dog, Polly Pocket, making frequent TV appearances in Bakersfield, home was always in the back of her mind, so in December of 2012, she moved back to work for the station where she first learned the ropes. <a href="">Twitter: @CambiBrown</a> <a href="">Email:</a> [caption id="attachment_195352" align="alignright" width="300"]<a href=""><img class="size-medium wp-image-195352" alt="Cambi Brown" src="" width="300" height="218" /></a> Cambi Brown[/caption] When not at work, you’ll find Cambi watching "I Love Lucy" reruns, bragging about her brother, who is proudly serving our country, or trying to stop her mom from telling everyone in town to watch her daughter on Good Day! <strong>Getting Answers with Cambi Brown</strong> 1.
