Karina Nova, an Emmy-winning journalist and the weekend anchor for WBNS-10TV News, will be the guest speaker at the 2017 Fayette County Cattlefeeders Winter Banquet at the Mahan Building on Monday, Feb. 27.
Since her start at 10TV in Columbus in 2006, Nova has covered several big stories, including the Chardon High School shootings, the Zanesville animal escape, and the 2012 train derailment, for which she won an Emmy. She also serves as the 10TV spokesperson for the Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks.
The Kent State University graduate spent the early years of her life growing up in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, near the Caspian Sea. At age 8, she and her family moved to Ashtabula, Ohio.
Social hour at the banquet begins at 6 p.m., followed by a welcome and invitation. A prime rib meal will be served to those in attendance.
Following a message from JL Draganic, the Cattlefeeders president, Nova will deliver her speech.
Once again this year, the Distinguished Cattlemen of the Year award presentation will be made and the new Fayette County Beef Queen will be crowned.
This year’s Cattlefeeders’ officers are Draganic, vice president Luke Bihl, secretary Kris Waits, and treasurer Randy Miller.
Tickets for the banquet are $25 a piece and they can be purchased at the local Extension Office or if you are a Cattlefeeders member.
