We're so excited to announce Maarja Anderson as our new Good Morning Northland Anchor! Brittany and Ben gave Maarja some rapid fire questions on our Thursday show to get her warmed up for the anchor desk. She'll be in the anchor chair next Monday.

At the same time, we're sad to see Brittany go, but wish her the best of luck in Green Bay. She'll be joining WFRV-TV Channel 5 as their morning show co-anchor. Brittany says she had a fantastic two and a half years at WDIO and will miss the Northland, but she's looking forward to her future in Wisconsin.
