Rebecca has wanted to be in television news for as long as she can remember. She recalls watching the news every morning before school and in the evening around dinner time.

Growing up along the shore of Lake Michigan in Manitowoc, WI she started her broadcasting career in high school as an intern at WCUB/WLTU Radio in Manitowoc and eventually promoted to an on-air DJ.

Following high school, she moved to southwest Wisconsin to attend the University of Wisconsin-Platteville where she received her Bachelor of Science in Media Studies with an emphasis in Video and Audio Production and a minor in Journalism.

While in school, she was a news intern at WLUK-TV in Green Bay, WI.

Rebecca loves living in the Upper Peninsula and is proud to be a transfer Yooper!
