Rebecca Ribley joined Wisconsin’s WAOW Newsline 9 team in May 2014 as the Wood County Bureau multimedia journalist. This summer the AU theatre minor made the move to the weekend anchor desk for Wake Up Wisconsin.

From Medina, Ohio, Ribley majored in digital media journalism and minored in theatre. While at AU, she appeared in eight main stage theatre productions and served as a technician as well. She was a reporter, anchor, and producer of the university’s news channel, TV-20, and found herself writing articles for the newspaper and reporting news updates on the radio.

Rebecca had the pleasure of interning with WKYC in Cleveland, Ohio during the summer of 2013. She was able to work hands-on with reporters at the station to bring breaking news to people all over the world.
