March 2013: Congratulations to UW-Green Bay student Katie Phernetton, who recently was named the next CW 14 Star! Phernetton was chosen from a group of talented finalists (including several UW-Green Bay alumni) for the gig representing the CW 14 network on-air, online and in the community. She was set to appear live on CW 14 sister network WLUK, Fox 11 at 8:45 a.m. Thursday for an introduction as the new Star. Auditions for the role began in January, and Phernetton, a senior Communication major, officially takes over in her new role Monday (April 1). Way to go, Katie!

Skills gained during Phernetton’s UWGB education are put to use in this role. The nature of the small university in a large city allows for opportunities like this one.
