WOOD Reporter Anne Schieber Leaving TV, But Still Using Reporting Skills

By Merrill Knox 

After 14 years at Grand Rapids NBC-affiliate WOOD, reporter Anne Schieber has left television to join the Mackinac Center for Public Policy as a senior investigative analyst.

In a statement announcing her hire, Schieber said the move was a natural step from her reporting position at WOOD.

“My goal as a reporter has always been to take what is important and make it interesting, not the other way around,” she said. “I look forward to investigating complex policy issues and showing how they impact people’s lives.”


Schieber joined WOOD in 1998. Her last day on the air was January 3.
