Therese Vinal, a former Division 1 volleyball player, is joining WNWO in Toledo as the station’s weekend sports anchor.

“Therese is a sparkplug! Her energy is infectious,” WNWO news director Amulya Raghuveer said, announcing the hiring.  “She’s bright, hard-working, and extremely personable.”

Vinal comes to WNWO after several years reporting and anchoring for Cal-Hi Sports Bay Area, a high school sports show that airs on Comcast SportsNet California.   She played volleyball for four years at the University of Colorado, where she was named to the Big 12 Conference’s All-Academic First Team.
