Danette Childs


Danette joined the KTTC news team in March 2010 as the 5 p.m. producer and began producing the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows in January 2011.

She is a native of South St. Paul, MN and graduated from Winona State University with a B.A. degree in Mass Communications with a Broadcasting emphasis. 

Danette's minor at WSU was Geoscience and she did a weather internship at WXOW in La Crosse in the summer of 2008, preparing for a career in weather, but decided over time that the role of a producer might be a better fit for her… Although following the weather is still one of her favorite hobbies.

Before joining the KTTC team, she was part of KTTC's Election Night Team in '08, learned what it's like to prepare and deliver a weathercast while at WXOW, to working a floor crew and shadowing producers at WKBT in La Crosse. 

She enjoys watching movies with her husband Jameson, shopping, going for strolls, hanging out with her cats Chloe and Louie, or dancing around her apartment.
