Christie Battista is an Emmy award-winning journalist coming to Champaign from Madison, WI. There, she anchored the top-rated weekend morning show and was also a multimedia journalist. Before that she was a morning reporter in Rockford, IL for two years.
She’s clearly not new to mornings (although she doesn’t consider herself to be an early riser) and is excited to be on the desk with Anthony for the morning Show.
Being originally from Chicago and attending Michigan State, Christie considers herself a Midwesterner through and through and believes the people here really are the greatest; it’s not just a myth. She can’t wait to get to know the people in the CU community and share their stories.
When not at work, she enjoys cooking (but especially eating) and spending time with her pup, Lola. Please feel free to email story ideas her way or just say hi!
