Weekend Anchor & Reporter
Janie Bohlmann is the weekend anchor and reports during the week for both WMBD and WYZZ news. She also produces the three 30-minute broadcasts on both Saturday and Sunday. It’s one of many roles Janie has held in the newsroom since she started in June 2019.
Janie first started as a multimedia journalist and photographer for the station. Within six months, she was promoted to morning reporter for the WMBD This Morning and Good Day Central Illinois morning shows. As the morning reporter, Janie reported live several times throughout the morning, covering events and breaking news.
Janie is a proud graduate of the University of Georgia and loves watching SEC football and cheering on the Dawgs. As a student journalist, Janie covered a variety of stories for the school’s station, Grady Newsource. One of her favorite opportunities was covering the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race from Stacey Abrams’ headquarters on election night.
