Manda Barger

Manda Barger has called the Local 6 area home since 2010.

She is from Central Illinois and studied to be a newscast producer while working at WEEK/WHOI/WAOE before moving to Paducah.

As a producer, Manda crafted daily newscasts and worked with her colleagues to tell your stories. She became the station’s first Evolving Media & Content Manager in 2017. Instead of content for television, she now produces for our web channel and social media. She loves the challenge of finding the best way to tell a story whether it is going on interviews, creating graphics, or coding for a project page.

When not at work, Manda is making memories with her husband, young child, and their pets. She enjoys traveling while learning about history and culture.
