Julia Fello is the Weekend Daybreak Anchor for TODAY'S TMJ4, which airs Saturdays and Sundays from 5:00 - 7:00 a.m. She joined the station as a reporter in October 2014.
She is a graduate of Elmhurst College in Illinois with a B.A. degree in Communication Studies. She also attended DePaul University's Journalism Master's program in Chicago.
She comes to TODAY'S TMJ4 after reporting for more than two years for WWMT-TV in West Michigan. There she worked as the Battle Creek Bureau reporter.
Julia is not new to the Badger State! She reported in Wisconsin for more than four years. She began in 2008 at WSAW-TV in Wausau. There she was a reporter and anchored the Sunday morning show. Two years later, she moved down to the state capital in Madison to work for WKOW-TV. She was a reporter and weekend morning anchor. During that time, she covered the controversial Budget Repair Bill. She reported on the union protests at the Capitol, and multiple recall elections, including state senators and Governor Scott Walker.
Her first break into news was working for CNN as a runner at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City. The experience inspired her to pursue a career in broadcast journalism.
Julia kept busy throughout college, interning in Chicago for NBC 5, WMAQ-TV, and Fox Chicago News, WFLD-TV. She worked for both stations after the internships. First, she worked for WMAQ as a production assistant. Julia then worked for WFLD as a production assistant, field producer and live web talent for the Fox-owned website LiveNewsCameras.com.
She is proud to now call Southeastern Wisconsin her home, and works hard to report stories affecting our community.
