Madison Marquardt grew up right by Buffalo in Kenmore, New York. She moved to Rochester in 2017 and lives right in Center City. She is a SUNY Buffalo State graduate (go Bengals!). Starting as an intern, Madison joined the Spectrum News Team in 2016. Grateful for the opportunity, she thinks it's important to share the community’s stories, and believes Rochester is the perfect place to report because of how lively and diverse it is.

Madison’s favorite place to grab a quick bite is Wegmans. If you're looking for the best garbage plate she recommends South Wedge Hots & Subs. When Madison isn’t running around reporting her stories, you can catch her spending time with her family and friends.
