Danielle Wagner joined WEAU 13 News in June 2015 as Weekend Anchor/Multimedia Journalist, and now co-anchors WEAU 13 News at Five with Judy Clark and WEAU 13 News at Six and Ten with Bob Gallaher.
She grew up in Oelwein, which is a small town in Iowa. Danielle graduated from the University of Iowa in 2005 with a degree in journalism and history.
Her broadcast journalism career began at KTVO as a bureau reporter in Ottumwa, Iowa. Danielle then joined KWWL in Waterloo, Iowa as a reporter. She spent more than seven years at the station reporting and anchoring the weekend morning news.
Danielle has received honors for reporting and anchoring from the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
One of Danielle's passions is pets, which was inspired by her beloved dog Cubbie. He passed away in 2018.
Danielle currently has five rescue dogs of her own, and she promotes pet adoption with a weekly segment on WEAU.
Each Thursday, "Wagner Tails" features adoptable pets from numerous pet shelters and rescues across western Wisconsin. As much as Danielle would like to adopt them all, she knows she can't, and this is her way of helping as many pets as possible find their forever homes.
When she isn’t working, Danielle is spending time with her five rescue dogs (Teddy, Missy, Pippy, Alffy, & Benny). She also loves being an aunt to her two nephews, including buying them all matching outfits.
She also enjoys reading, binge watching TV shows, and she does way too much online shopping. But in her defense, a lot of the items she buys benefit rescue pets, so it's hard to say no.
