KX News Wishes the Best for Marci Narum

Posted: Updated:

She has been in broadcasting for 21 years making a name for herself in North Dakota, her home state.

Now, The KX news team says goodbye to a real class act.

Our treasured producer and anchor, Marci Narum.

Marci is following her dreams to pursue her own business.

As the KX family wishes her well we take a look back at her career and the many people she has touched through the years.

"Good evening, I'm Marci Narum, thanks for watching, I hope you're doing well."

She's been producing and anchoring the five o'clock news at KX for 10 years, but she has been in the TV news industry for the last 21.

"This has been a part of my life for a long time."

Marci pursued broadcasting at Minot State where she got her first part time TV job at KX behind the scenes.

"I never wanted to be on this side of the camera, this was never my plan or my goal or my dream job, but because I had people who believed in me who said, we'll help you, we'll teach you, you can do this Marci, I learned and I kept trying."

The college student who never thought she would be an anchor turned into one of the most beloved local news anchors in North Daktoa.

"What I did learn is that it's not about me, it's about delivering those important stories, important information to people at home."

Marci covered many different events in her career.

She used to have the education beat and loved interviewing kids.

 "Kids would say the darndest things, but they would be so honest, and so real!"

Marci has interviewed all ages during her noon show segment, a way of reporting about upcoming events or causes while making people feel at home.

"What I'm going to miss the most is the people that I've met and my co-workers, you become family."

The people she works with will miss her even more.

From her creative writing and thoughtful producing, to her skilled interviewing, Marci has made an impact on the quality here, something the news team will miss dearly.

But it's who Marci is as a person that we will miss the most.

"What won't I miss about Marci Narum, is the better question." says Sarah Gustin.

"There's so much that I will miss about Marci Narum." says Lauren Kalberer.

"She's a very special person, always so nice to everyone" says Jared Piepenburg.

"She comes in with such a bright attitude and smile." says Jody Simmons.

"She puts out this aura of love." says Juan Thomas.

"She's by far the most thoughtful person that I've had the chance to work with." says Tom Gerhardt.

"I think that she makes us all strive to do better because she does set the bar that high." says Sarah Gustin.

"Her contagious positive attitude, her work ethic, and her down to earth friendliness, I've actually become friends with her, off the camera as well, I'll miss her height as well too." says Tom Szymanski.

Yes Marci, definitely stands out as one of the greats.

Along with her talents on air, and in the newsroom, she is known to those close to her, as a lover of animals, and a co-worker who will always bring you a special treat on your birthday.

"It used to be ice cream cakes!" laughs Marci.

"Why, because I care, I care about people, I love to bake, I love to give, drives my husband crazy..."

And her last message to TV viewers is just as sweet as her cookies and her disposition.

"I end the newscast with, make it a great night, which is a simple way of saying, make it a great night for yourself or for someone else, because I really think we have that power, we have the power to choose." says Marci.

"One of my favorite sayings is, if you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours..."

She has made us smile and now she makes us cry!

But we wish her the best of luck in her new business inspiring others.

You can follow her on her new path on this website:

Our staff also had a lot to say about the hundreds of birthday cookies Marci has made over the years.
