Bret Lemoine is thrilled to be reporting in Wisconsin's Fox River Valley. He comes to WFRV from the CBS affiliate in Peoria, Illinois (WMBD) where he was a Weekday Reporter and Weekend Anchor/Producer.
Before his stint in Illinois, Bret called Wisconsin "home." Bret lived in Waukesha and interned at WTMJ while attending the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point (UWSP). Bret has been recognized twice by the Illinois Broadcasters Association - once in the category of Best Hard News story in 2007, and again in 2008 for his weekly franchise series, "Streets of Speed." In 2011, he was recognized by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association for his work covering the Chestnut St. fire.
At WFRV, Bret has covered some of the biggest stories in our state. He was in Madison for daily updates during the collective bargaining debate in 2011. He also covered the Kaukauna tornadoes, the Marinette High School shooting and was stationed in Dallas as the Packers won Super Bowl XLV.
Bret currently serves on the Board of Directors for Fox Cities Online, a local non-profit that hosts community organization's websites. "FOCOL" also serves as an online database for all businesses and organization in the Fox Cities.
Bret enjoys traveling the world. Some of the places he's visited include Turkey, Germany, Jamaica, Ireland, England, Finland, Estonia and half-dozen others! In his spare time, Bret enjoys working out, watching TV and talking with people. He is also a big Superman fan.
