Christie Battista Biography

Christie Battista is an Emmy award-winning journalist currently working as the Weekend Morning Anchor at WDRBNews.

Christie Battista Career

She relocated to Champaign from Madison, WI, where she hosted a popular weekend morning show. She previously worked as a morning reporter in Rockford, Illinois for two years. She clearly isn’t new to mornings and enjoys sitting at the news desk with you for your first cup of coffee. Christie considers herself a Midwesterner through and through, and believes that the people here truly are the best; it’s not just a myth. She enjoys getting to know members of the CU community and hearing their stories. She enjoys cooking and spending time with her dog, Lola, when she is not at work.

WDRB (UHF digital channel 32) is a Fox-affiliated television station licensed to Louisville, Kentucky, in the United States. Block Communications owns the station as part of a duopoly with Salem, Indiana-licensed dual CW/MyNetworkTV affiliate WBKI (channel 58). The two stations share studios in downtown Louisville on West Muhammad Ali Boulevard (near US 150); WDRB’s transmitter is in rural northeastern Floyd County, Indiana (northeast of Floyds Knobs). Charter Spectrum channel 9 is where you can find the station on cable.

Robert Rounsaville, owner of WLOU (1350 AM), Louisville’s first Black-oriented radio station, received the first construction permit for channel 41 in 1953. It would take nearly five years for any station to go on the air. Delays were caused by antenna height issues and permitting setbacks for the new WDRB-TV and a channel 21 permittee. On February 28, 1971, the station became the first independent station in the Louisville market. In 1970, Louisville’s WDRB-TV debuted on the airwaves with a mix of cartoons, westerns, outdoor shows, and classic films.

Within months, the station was profitable and tied in the ratings with then-ABC affiliate WLKY-TV. The station’s broadcast day was extended to 11:00 a.m. in 1979, with the addition of a four-hour block of religious programming. It would eventually withdraw from competition for something it had wanted since 1977: a switch from channel 41 to channel 21.
