Anchor Promoted to News Director at WSAW

Mikel Lauber has been promoted to news director at WSAW. Lauber, who joined the station in 2007, currently anchors the CBS-affiliate’s 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.

“I’m excited and fortunate to lead this veteran newsroom,” Lauber said, “and look forward to elevating the level of news coverage for the viewers in Northcentral Wisconsin.”

Last year, Lauber, a Wisconsin native, was named assistant news director to Susan Ramsett, whom he replaces. Ramsett left WSAW this spring after leading the newsroom for four years.

During his time with WSAW, Lauber has been honored several times for his investigative reporting, receiving a Murrow award in 2008 and Emmy nominations in ’08 and ’09.
