The newscaster, who is currently unmarried always has her love life a mystery. There is not much news or gossips about her being involved in a romantic relationship with any boyfriends.
However, as per the article published in 2017, she was in a long-lasting relationship with her professor Mark Bergmann. Her husband-like boyfriend, Mark was the manager of WRMU 91.1 FM at the time, and she was a member of the station.
Mark encouraged her to be self-confident and was the one to motivate her career in journalism. Since then there are no any further details about their relationship affairs.
So, until and unless she opens up about her relationship status it's difficult to say whether she is single or is committed to her boyfriend, Mark.
