Vince Vitrano
joined TODAY'S TMJ4 in the spring of 2000 as a general assignment reporter, and is now the anchor of "Live at Daybreak" and "Live at Noon" and "Live at 12:30." Vince was born in Milwaukee and grew up in Wauwatosa, graduating from Tosa East High School. "Ever since I began broadcasting in Green Bay, it was my goal to come home and work for Channel 4."

Vince graduated with a degree in Communications from St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. For a summer job, he worked at the Green Bay Packers training camp, held annually at the College. He was even the subject of a "Packers Extra" story.  "Yep, it was my first appearance on TODAY'S TMJ4, and I wasn't an employee… yet."

Working the "Daybreak" schedule gets Vinny up at 2:30am most mornings, and in to work around 3:30. It's not the first time he's woken up early for Journal Communications, the parent company of TODAY'S TMJ4. "In the late 80's and early 90's, I was a newspaper carrier for the Milwaukee Sentinel, before it merged with the Journal."

Vince's wife, Nicole, is originally from Cedarburg and now teaches at an area high school. The two are proud parents of daughter Ella, born in 2005 and twins, Max and Olivia, born in 2007. Vince's mother and father are also teachers in the area.  But his siblings chose a similar path as Vince; his brother is a radio host and manager in Green Bay, and his sister works as an actress.

In his free time, Vince enjoys playing golf and attending sporting events, especially the Packers and Brewers.
