Elishah Oesch is excited to join the WKOW Wake Up Wisconsin team here in beautiful Madison Wisconsin. A self-proclaimed "morning person," Elishah truly enjoys bringing you the news bright and early every weekday morning. Elishah brings a depth of experience as an anchor and a reporter to WKOW. She adds a quick smile and fun personality to that professional foundation.
Originally from Tennessee, Elishah's early broadcasting career kept her close to home. She worked as the weekend anchor/producer for the FOX affiliate in Chattanooga. Afterwards, she moved north to South Bend, Indiana and anchored the morning show for WKOW's sister station, FOX28. Elishah graduated from the University of Memphis and studied abroad at Edge Hill College in England.
Elishah actively supports the Muscular Dystrophy Association, a cause very close to her heart. She's also involved in helping women of all ages and races through the YWCA. Elishah contributes her time and talents to the Ronald McDonald House and Food For The Poor, a global organization geared toward ending hunger in third world countries.
Elishah comes from a big family. She's a very proud God-Mother of her sister's daughter, Elizabeth. Elishah loves to spend time with all her family, as well as her dog, Sonya, whose wagging tail is the best part of every morning.
Elishah's passion is communicating the news to every person as if they were a close friend. She looks forward to waking up Wisconsin for many years to come.
You can see Elishah weekday mornings from 4:30 to 7 a.m. as she co-anchors Wake Up Wisconsin with Dani Maxwell and 27 Storm Track Meteorologist Brian Olson.
