Having grown up on the "frozen tundra" of Green Bay, Wisconsin, Liz Lohuis is happy to call the much warmer Upstate her new home.
Liz joined the WYFF4 news team in January of 2013 as a reporter for the 11pm news. She comes from WICD-TV in Champaign, Illinois where she worked as a "one man band" shooting, writing, and editing her own stories. Liz will never forget the story she covered on a father who in the middle of the night found a python wrapped around his baby boy in his crib. Fortunately the baby was okay, and celebrated his first birthday the next day with only a scratch. Her story made national news, and was picked up by the Huffington Post.
Prior to WICD, Liz worked as a morning show producer for WLUK-TV in Green Bay, the station she grew up watching. In fact, Liz made her debut on the station when she was just three years old. She was in a televised promo for a special report on the dangers of radon.
WLUK was so close to the Green Bay Packers stadium, Liz spent many Sunday mornings after her shift tailgating with thousands of her closest friends before the big game. No matter where she lives, Liz will always be a cheesehead.
Liz graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with a BA in Radio/TV/Film and a minor in theater.
In her spare time Liz likes running, cooking, playing guitar, and walking her dog, Penguin. She's always looking for story ideas, so feel free to email her.
