CW 14 is pleased to announce Katie Phernetton as the next CW 14 Star! Starting on Monday, April 1st, Katie will represent CW 14 on-air; online; and in the community.
The search from the next CW 14 Star began in January, with two open auditions at Paul Mitchell The School Green Bay.
Katie was selected as one of the Top 10 CW 14 Star hopefuls, and then as one of the Top 5.
As part of the search for the CW 14 Star, Katie took part in a photo event before a Phoenix game; got a makeover from Paul Mitchell The School Green Bay; shot two audition videos that were voted on by visitors to CW14online.com, and performed improv for charity at ComedyCity.
Katie Phernetton said, "I'm so excited for this opportunity and can't wait to start working with such talented people and get out in the community. It truly is an honor to be selected as the CW-14 Star."
Katie has previous experience in front of the camera with UWGB's Phlash TV, and behind the scenes working for the Green Bay Phoenix.
WLUK Vice President / General Manager Jay Zollar: ""We were thrilled with the caliber of finalists this year. All of them had great strengths and should be proud of how far they got in the selection process. Ultimately, we were deeply impressed by Katie's background and enthusiasm, and we look forward to working with her as our new CW 14 Star."
