Stacy Engebretson is leaving NBC26 (WGBA-TV) after 20 years at the station.

Engebretson is a two-time Emmy award-winning journalist who most recently anchored NBC 26 Live at 5:00 and previously anchored NBC 26 at 6:00 and 10:00. She also served as NBC 26’s Assistant News Director.

Engebretson previously worked as an anchor/reporter for WAOW-TV in Wausau and KSAX-TV in Alexandria, Minnesota.

“I want to thank you for inviting me into your living room every night over the past two decades, whether it was through your television or for a sit-down interview,” Engebretson said during her last broadcast. “You shared your joy with me, your pain, your victories and frustrations. Thank you for trusting me to tell your stories.”

Engebretson plans to continue working with the many nonprofit organizations she developed relationships with through her NBC26 Cares series.
