Sad to report we’re losing Casey Wonneberg, WDAZ andÂ (more selfishly) me.Â After thirteen years as a solo anchor @5, since February, Casey and I have been co-producing and co-anchoring WDAZ News @5 together.Â
Casey isÂ leaving us toÂ reportÂ for KELO-TV in Sioux Falls.Â Â Our lose is their gain, to be sure.Â Â The moveÂ willÂ Â make her husband Dave’s work as a pilot easier.Â And, Casey will be closer to her family (whom she is very close to) in South Dakota.
I’ll missÂ Casey terribly.Â We all will. She was theÂ first co-producer and co-anchor of WDAZ News @5, and she’s been a good one.Â We’ve only worked togetherÂ on the five for a few weeks, but she’s made my life easier and we’ve had a lot of fun together.
It’s very hard to see people leave.Â (I’ve seen more than my share go in my time at WDAZ.)Â We all wish Casey and Dave the very, very best.Â They deserve it.
