An Iron Ranger has found a place at the anchor desk at WDIO-TV.
Renee Passal has been reporting for the station since April of 2005. A Virginia native, she covers the mining and shipping industries. She also anchors the weekly segment, "This Week in Mining." Renee will continue to report around the Northland, in addition to being the face of Eyewitness News at 5.
"This new opportunity for me to anchor just adds to the way that I deliver news to our viewers. I'm committed to bringing them stories and newscasts they can count on," she says.
Renee studied broadcast journalism at the University of Minnesota. Four years of fun and finals later, she crossed the border to Wisconsin. Renee worked at WEUX-TV in Eau Claire, in their sales department. But news was still her true calling, and she joined the Eyewitness News team.
On days off, you can find Renee curling and reading romance novels. She's also a self-proclaimed email addict.
