Renee Chou is a three-time, Emmy-award winning anchor/reporter for WRAL-TV News. She joined WRAL in October 2004 as a general assignment reporter. Through the years, she served as the weekend morning anchor and weekend evening anchor.

Renee won a Regional Emmy for General Assignment Reporting in 2016. Her coverage of Hurricane Sandy earned her a Regional Emmy in 2014, as well as the distinction of “Best Weather Reporting” from the NC Associated Press Broadcast Awards. She also won an Emmy in 2013 for her work on the Kathy Taft murder trial. Her reports have also garnered awards from the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas; Iowa Associated Press Broadcasters Association; and Missouri Broadcasters Association.
