Colette invites you to join her for a ‘cup of joe’ weekdays on TV-5 Wake-Up from

4:30 a.m.-7 a.m. & 9 a.m. She’s excited to spread a little sunshine & give you an early morning jolt to jumpstart your day.

Colette has worn many ‘hats’ at TV-5. She has been a reporter, morning, noon & evening anchor since starting at TV-5 in 2013.

As a “morning person” Colette says her favorite ‘hat’ is giving viewers the kickstart they need, bright & early, to have an awesome day.

Colette says, “For me it's a perfect mix. I get to do what I love in the morning-informing viewers & letting them know how to keep their families safe & healthy- then enjoy precious time with my little sweethearts after-school & in the evenings.”

To say Colette is a diehard Wolverine is an understatement. She earned her master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.

The native Detroiter even frequently shouts a random “Go Blue!”. Colette began her broadcast career as an auto show spokesmodel, reporter in Florida, on to anchor/reporter in Lansing then made the trek to Mid-Michigan. Colette loves living in the Great Lakes Bay region and feels right at home. She even calls viewers her extended family.

When you see Colette out & about she would love for you to say hello. If you have a story idea, or just want to chit-chat, connect with Colette on Facebook and Twitter or email her by clicking here.
