Colleen is the WTAJ Morning Anchor

If you like coffee, cats, music, family, traveling and or laughing, chances are you will get along with Colleen. Even if you don't, WTAJs Morning Anchor is easy going and approachable.

You can often catch Colleen walking through downtown Hollidaysburg supporting local business and trying new restaurants. The yoga lover also enjoys traveling and experiencing the charm that the area has to offer. 

 You can watch her Monday through Friday, anchoring WTAJ New this Morning from 5-7 am (of course after she has had at least two cups of coffee!) and again at Noon.
