Fannon joins CBS 58 in Milwaukee

Emilee Fannon is joining CBS 58 (WDJT-TV) in Milwaukee as the station’s Capitol Bureau Correspondent.

Fannon will join the station in January and will be based in Madison. She spent the last three years as the Capitol Bureau Chief for WKOW-TV in Madison. During the 2020 Presidential election she interviewed President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Mike Pence, along with other prominent figures from both campaigns. Before coming to Madison, she covered politics in the Illinois capitol of Springfield as a statehouse reporter for three years.

“I strive to cover the political stories that have the most effect on people right here in Wisconsin,” Fannon said. “I’m excited for the opportunity to take that passion to a larger stage and reach even more people.”

“Emilee brings a wealth of Capitol experience to CBS 58,” said Kent Harrell, News Director at CBS 58. “She knows the players and knows how to get the whole story. She will strengthen our commitment to fair and balanced political coverage that our viewers deserve.”
