Michele returned to broadcasting after spending nearly 3 years as Individual Giving Manager of the Hunger Task Force food bank and farm in Southeast Wisconsin.
She’s enjoyed returning to local news and working alongside legend Tom Zalaski.
Michele has distinguished herself in Northeast Wisconsin with a series of groundbreaking reports including the surge in crime related to Methamphetamine drug use in Brown County and the exclusive interview with the man who survived getting shot in the head while tubing along the Little Wolf River.
While born on the east coast and a graduate of Pepperdine University in California, Michele calls Wisconsin home.
She earned her reporting stripes at WGEM in Quincy, Ill., where her live reporting on the Great Flood of 1993 garnered an Edward R. Murrow Award. Murrow is a personal hero of Michele.
From there, Michele served the viewing public as a reporter at KWCH in Wichita, Kan., a weekend anchor/reporter at KMBC in Kansas City, Mo., a reporter, and a fill-in anchor at WPVI in Philadelphia, Penn. and an anchor/reporter at WDJT in Milwaukee.
Michele was recognized at the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association for her anchoring on the best 10 p.m. newscast of 2013.
She is most proud of her son, Sean, who is a senior Airman with the United States Air Force.
