WREX Anchor Dani Maxwell Joining WKOW

Dani Maxwell, the evening anchor and assistant news director at WREX in Rockford, is leaving the station for an anchor position at WKOW in Madison.

Maxwell, who co-anchored the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts with Eric Wilson, signed off from WREX last week after 10 years. Starting today, 10 p.m. anchor Katie Nilsson will add the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts to her duties.

Starting January 18, Maxwell will be an anchor and reporter at WKOW. Both WKOW and WREX are owned by Quincy Newspapers.

“We’re sorry to see Dani go, but at least she is staying with the company,” WREX vice president and general manager John Chadwick told the Rockford-Register Star.
