WRAL-TV Anchor/Reporter Renee Chou wrapped up 2019 by sharing her career with an aspiring newscaster, helping mentor the next generation of anchors. On Monday, December 30, 2019, she welcomed a young fan to the newsroom.
It all started with a letter about a month ago. When sixth-grader Valentina (wearing yellow) from Henderson wrote the sweetest letter as a big fan of WRAL’s AM news and that she wanted to be a news anchor one day, I knew I had to meet my eventual replacement. Her parents took me up on an offer for a tour of the station today. After the tour, Valentina says she STILL wants to do this when she grows up! Success! Her future is bright.
