GREEN BAY, Wis. - We're celebrating an anniversary at NBC26. 22 years ago, we launched our first newscast. It was July 19, 1996. The top story was the damage from the Oakfield tornado.
A few months later, Cameron Moreland joined the team as the weekend meteorologist.
Four years after Cameron's debut, Stacy Engebretson began reporting out of NBC26's Fox Valley bureau in Grand Chute.
While our clothing and hairstyles have changed, our dedication to accurate, balanced journalism and keeping you safe from the storm remains the same. Our coverage of the June 2017 tornado outbreak, earned NBC26 an Eric Sevareid Award, a Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Award of Excellence and the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award. Last December, NBC26 won the coveted Chicago Midwest Regional Emmy Award for Best Newscast for our coverage of the police officer shooting tragedy in Dallas.
While we're proud of our accolades, we're also honored to be able to grow our commitment to the community. Whether it's feeding the hungry through our Food for Neighbors drive, collecting diapers for those in need or gathering Gifts for Teens during the holidays with the Green Bay Metro Fire Department, we look forward to serving our community for another two decades and beyond.
