Dani Maxwell

Dani is the co-anchor and Executive Producer of Wake Up Wisconsin on WKOW. She grew up in the Midwest and has always wanted to make Madison her home.

Dani graduated with a Broadcast Journalism degree from Illinois State University. She started her career in sports, but eventually began reporting news full time. Dani worked at various stations in Illinois and Colorado, spending 10 years at WREX, where she eventually became the Assistant News Director and Evening Anchor. She won a Silver Dome Award from the Illinois Broadcasters Association and was a finalist for an Emmy for reporting on the Northern Illinois University shooting in 2008.

Volunteering is something that has always been important to Dani, and she's worked hard for organizations like the American Cancer Society and Remedies, a domestic violence shelter.

Dani loves all sports, but her favorites are baseball, football, and hockey. She was a competitive gymnast growing up. She and her husband Steve are now cyclists and ride in several races every year, including the Best Dam Bike Ride from Milwaukee to Madison. They're excited to be rooting for the Badgers now!

Dani and Steve have a daughter, Rylan. She keeps them busy too.
