Krystle joined the FOX6 WakeUp team in June 2013. The move was a big deal for her; it meant that she was finally home.

Krystle grew up in Cudahy; living in the same house her mom had grown up in. After graduating from Cudahy High School, she made her first Midwest move to Minnesota. There she studied Broadcast Journalism at the University of Minnesota (Go Gophers!) before graduating with a BA in journalism and a minor in history.

Krystle landed her first television job in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with the NBC affiliate KDLT. There she not only learned the ropes as a reporter, but was able to try her hand at photography, editing, producing and anchoring. After three years at KDLT, Krystle accepted a job in Des Moines at WHO as a multi-media journalist (a fancy term that basically means “does it all”). Less than a year later, she was promoted to a night-side reporter, and fill-in anchor. After two years at that station, and a first place Eric Sevareid Award, it was time to come home to Milwaukee.

After 10 years away, Krystle couldn’t be happier to be doing what she loves, in the city she loves. It’s great being back around all of her family and friends, but she’s also excited about all the people she is going to meet and the stories she will be able to share. As the morning reporter for FOX6 Wakeup, Krystle has the opportunity to go out every morning and do just that.

When she’s not at work, you can find her out and about getting reacquainted with the city she’s always called home or relaxing with a good book or a couple of good friends.

This isn`t JC Penny`s selling socks. This is teaching the future,” Kim Schroeder, Milwaukee Teachers Education Association president said. Schroeder believes the proposal that would […]
