adidas head office uk Katie DeLong
I feel like this position is absolutely perfect for me, as I am a web junkie! I don think there is a single hour in the day that I not doing SOMETHING online, whether it be at work, at home on my laptop, or on my Blackberry. Also a self described newsie, I so excited to see how we can use technology to help keep you informed!
Originally from Byron, Illinois (a blip on the map 30 minutes south of Rockford, IL), I grew up in a town of around 4,000, watching FOX6 Mary Stoker Smith anchor the news every night on WTVO in Rockford (it was my dad favorite station!)
After graduating from high school, I was anxious to escape my small town, but wasn ready for a big city. After visiting UW Whitewater, I knew with the small town feel, it would be a great fit! I spent four years completely immersed in the on campus television and radio stations, and also did a little bit of writing on the side, for the on campus newspaper, the Royal Purple. With the television station, I was involved in doing live broadcasts of the UWW Warhawk football games, and it was great to see our athletes achieve so much! (And the legacy of Warhawk football continues to this day!) To me, my legacy at U Dub Dub, as they call it,
was my 30 minute live newscast I produced, that won a Wisconsin Broadcasters Association third place award for best newscast. Winning that award was my goal when I stepped foot on campus as a freshman, and it was a great way to go out.
While at UWW, I got an internship with the investigative unit at another station here in Milwaukee. I remember the first time I drove to Milwaukee driving over the Marquette Interchange and feeling terrified at how high up I was! I was definitely not used to the big city freeway system!
I was hired by the station I interned with as an editor before finishing school at UWW, so I would make the hour commute every day between Milwaukee and Whitewater. After a few months of tape to tape editing (which I definitely didn learn in school!) I was promoted to the full time web producer position, and I loved it. I was the sole web producer, and while it meant long hours and lots of stress, I really felt like it was the perfect position for me, in the news field. While I was web producer, the site I worked on saw its highest web traffic in site history. Sadly, I was laid off in 2008 during the terrible recession, and struggled to find work. An MPD spokesman says police took a total of 14 calls regarding the possible lion in Milwaukee this weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). In court on Monday, July 27th, Holt pleaded no contest to one felony count of first degree sexual assault of a person under the age of 13. Two other felony charges were dismissed but read into the court record. EAA Chairman Jack Pelton said about 550,000 people attended the week long aviation convention one of the highest attended shows in at least a decade. Arrivals at Wittman Regional Airport peaked around 3,000 per day twice what occurs at Chicago O Airport on any given day.

Officials held a brief news conference on Sunday morning, July 26th in the neighborhood near 31st and Cameron. The commander on scene spoke briefly about the MPD operation that lasted for more than 12 hours. BREAKING: MKElion update from commander in scene. With that, came the thrill of a lifetime for FOX6 WakeUp Jessob Reisbeck, who got to take quite the ride! WATCH:
