She’s worked for numerous stations throughout the years, increasing her experience, and as she continues her endeavors it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Natalie grew up in Ohio and spent most of her childhood there, the eldest of four siblings. There was a point in her life when she wanted to become a police officer, and also envisioned herself becoming an actress, performing in various Broadway plays as well as other types of stage productions. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at Kent State University (KSU).
KSU includes several regional campuses all around the state, along with a few national and international campuses including one in New York City as well as one in Florence, Italy. It was originally a teacher training school before eventually opening other fields of study. The school is located in 1,000 acres of land and around 119 buildings. It is one of the largest universities in Ohio having an enrollment of over 39,000 students across its eight campus system. It is ranked one of the top 200 universities in the world, with notable programs in journalism, nursing, business, history, and fashion design.
While completing her education, she interned at New York City’s NY1 News, which is a channel founded by Time Warner Cable but now owned by Charter Communications. The channel provides 24 hour news coverage focusing on the five boroughs of New York City, covering events, traffic, weather, and much more. She also did an internship at Walt Disney World, as she also wanted to work there; the entertainment complex is located in Florida, and comprises four theme parks in nearly 25,000 acres – it was designed to supplement Anaheim’s Disneyland with its own diverse set of attractions. However, most of its experimental programs were abandoned after the death of Walt Disney, with construction instead opting for something similar to Disneyland. Today, it is the most visited vacation resort in the world.
Her internships gave her a lot more confidence, and soon after her graduation in 2004, she began working as a news anchor for WTOV-TV. She also served as a producer and reporter for the station, which is known for its news broadcasts, and for being the first station in Ohio to implement 16:9 widescreen enhanced definition. They also offer various syndicated programming.
After staying with WTOV for over three years, Natalie then moved to Charlotte, North Carolina where she would work as a co-anchor for WSOC-TV, which is an ABC affiliate and produces around 32 hours of locally produced newscasts each week. She made regular appearances in the station’s weekday newscasts, and stayed in that capacity for seven years. During her time there, she was able to cover numerous high-profile broadcasts, travelling to Washington, D.C. in 2011 to have an interview with President Barack Obama regarding trade issues locally and internationally. She also did coverage of the Democratic National Convention held in Charlotte the following year.
In 2015, she decided to move to News 4 New York or WNBC, which is the flagship station of the NBC television network. It covers the New York metropolitan area and produces around 40 hours of locally produced newscasts each week. She continued making strides in journalism, providing in-depth investigative stories on the use of black tar heroin and the rise of human trafficking. She also did an investigative report on sex offenders voting in public schools, which earned her honors from The West Virginia Associated Press. Throughout her career, she’s won 4 Emmy Awards for her journalistic work.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Pasquarella married Jamin Pastore in 2014 and they have a child together. According to several sources, the two were together for some time before deciding to marry, and pictures of the wedding can be seen on her social media accounts. She broke the news about her pregnancy online and was later seen working while pregnant with News 4. Her water broke sometime while she was on air, but waited until the show was off air before rushing to the hospital. There are no negative rumors regarding her marriage and her family.
