Rachel Elzufon is glad to be back in Western New York at Eyewitness News, after spending four years in the Golden State.
Rachel considers Buffalo her home, but got a taste of California life while working at KYMA News 11 in Yuma, AZ. During her time there, Rachel started as the bureau reporter for Imperial County, CA, before working her way up to morning anchor.
In 2010, Rachel helped KYMA win an Associated Press award with her coverage of the deadly Easter Sunday 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Baja California, Mexico. Rachel was also nominated for Associated Press Reporter of the Year in 2012. During her time at KYMA News 11, Rachel also covered the murder of Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas, budget cuts in local school districts and got to fly with the Blue Angels
Rachel went to University at Buffalo (go Bulls!), where she graduated with degrees in political science, journalism and dance. She interned at WKBW Eyewitness News, WETM 18 News in Elmira and America’s Most Wanted.
Born and raised in Wilmington, DE, Rachel spent most of her time in the dance studio growing up. If Rachel’s not in the newsroom, you can probably find her in dance class or teaching.
In her spare time, Rachel also loves spending time with her husband and their adorable dogs, Ally and Josi, scrapbooking and finding new restaurants. And of course, as a native of the greater Philadelphia area, Rachel can always be found tirelessly rooting for Philly sports teams!
