Rachel is no stranger to Central New York. As a reporter at WUTR in Utica, Rachel had her eye on investigative journalism. From exposing the high cost of housing sex offenders at the taxpayers’ expense, to uncovering discriminatory practices in the city’s hiring process, Rachel is always digging deeper to tell the stories YOU want to know about.

Rachel is a 2012 Penn State graduate. While there, she covered the local and school angles of the Jerry Sandusky saga. Although it was a tough time to be a Penn Stater, Rachel says it was an incredible time to be a reporter.

Her work has been recognized and honored by the Associated Press and Society of Professional Journalists.

When she’s not reporting, Rachel enjoys yoga, drawing and painting, and spending time with her family and friends. If you see her, make sure you say hello! Have any story ideas? Rachel can be reached at rachelpolansky@localsyr.com.
