Greg White was born in the Twin Cities and moved around in his youth, living in Pennsylvania and Ohio. The Coulee Region has always held a special place in his heart, as he’s the third generation of his family to attend Winona State.
Greg started working at News 8 in December 2006, shooting sports. He worked where he was needed as a photographer for both sports and news departments before climbing to a full time role in August 2014.

My best day at News 8 was the day…It’s so hard to choose just one. Over the years, I’ve been blessed to cover major events all over. The first time walking down the tunnel at Lambeau Field was so special.
