Connect With Elise Haas

As an adrenaline junkie, Elise thrives in the newsroom. Her passion lies in investigative reporting: Her desire to become an investigative reporter began while working with WMAQ’s NBC 5 Investigative Team in Chicago.

In addition to her professional experience at WMAQ, Elise has also worked as an assistant producer for WGN-TV and for WTTW11’s Chicago Tonight.

She graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a B.A. in broadcast journalism and political science. Before calling the Tri-Cities home, Elise grew up in Overland Park, Kansas.

When she’s not reporting and writing, you will probably find her at the farmers’ market. She enjoys all the outdoorsy activities Tri-Cities offers like hiking, kayaking and camping.

And she enjoys talking to viewers about their stories. If you have anything you’d like to share, she’d love to listen.
