VINCE Vitrano is an award-winning reporter who made a name for himself on Milwaukee’s TMJ4.
In February 2022, fans began to question his status with the network and want to know if he is leaving.
Who is Vince Vitrano?
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, native Vitrano is known as an Emmy award-winning reporter and anchor with TODAY’S TMJ4, the NBC affiliate in Milwaukee.
Over the years, he has won a number of awards and honors from the Associated Press and the Milwaukee Press Club. He is also the recipient of the 2015 Chicago Midwest Regional Emmy Award and the 2018 Wisconsin Broadcasters Association award for Best Social/Digital Media Personality.
Outside of reporting, Vitrano also serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Special Olympics Wisconsin, according to his TMJ4 bio.
Prior to his successful career, Vitrano attended St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin, where he obtained a degree in Communications.
Is he leaving TMJ4?
Vitrano announced in November 2021 that after 21 years at TMJ4, he will be leaving at the end of February 2022, to move on to a new adventure.
While he might be leaving TMJ4, he will still be within the WTMJ family, just not on the screen, instead, he will replace Gene Mueller as the host of “Wisconsin’s Morning News” on WTMJ 620-AM radio.
“I was among those listening and laughing out loud with Reitman and Mueller all those years ago when they were the red hot morning show on WKTI,” Vitrano said, via OnMilwaukee.
“To know that I will follow him is both a great honor and a little bit terrifying. [Mueller] is a friend and colleague who I have always looked up to.”
Vitrano had been with TMJ4 since 2000.
Is Vince Vitrano married?
When Vitrano is not on-air, he can typically be found at home with his family.
He is married to Nicole Vitrano and is the proud father of three children, Ella, Max, and Olivia.
Despite a high-profile husband and father, Vitrano’s family tends to stay out of the spotlight as not much information is available on them.
