Renee arrived at Channel 11 in January of 1995. Renee is a native of Greensboro, North Carolina. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in Communications. Renee came to Channel 11 News from WEAR-TV in Pensacola, Florida, where she anchored and produced the morning news show.
She is a supporter of the March of Dimes, and the American Cancer Society.
Renee feels the most memorable stories she's worked on are the rescue of the Quecreek Miners, and the Baumhammers murder trial. She got the first interview with convicted murderer Ronald Taylor after his arrest. Renee received an award for her Street Smart Series.
Renee says, "We, as reporters, are often touched by the stories we cover. As a reporter I often cover crime, and on a daily basis it can be difficult to check my objectivity and emotions at the door." She adds, "Just like you, we are equally appalled and sickened by the stories we have to tell-- not to mention the gut-wrenching tragedies with which we are afforded an uncomfortable front row seat. That said, I would not trade this job for any other. This career offers the opportunity to witness the region's colorful history, report on it, and be touched by it as well."
