ST. LOUIS, Mo.  (KMOV.com) -- KMOV is excited to announce that after months of filling in, Laura Hettiger is now a permanent member of the Great Day St. Louis team.

Vice President and General Manager Mike Murphy said, “Laura’s charming personality, and quick wit would make her a perfect fit to sit alongside co-hosts Matt Chambers and Kent Ehrhardt.”

Laura first joined KMOV in 2012 as a general assignment reporter for News 4 This Morning, winning an Emmy for her coverage of the Ferguson unrest.

She says her family always thought she would make a great fit on Great Day St. Louis. “When I started KMOV, my family and friends always asked about Great Day St. Louis and wanted me on the show. I’m so happy and honored to join Matt and Kent and the rest of the Great Day team.”

Laura will continue to keep viewers up to date on their morning commute from the 4Warn Traffic Center during News 4 This Morning, and then will stick around to host Great Day St. Louis. “I’ve been very blessed in my life to be on a variety of teams, but by far the best and one I’m most proud of is the team at KMOV. I’m eager to team up with Matt and Kent to help our viewers really have a great day!”

Laura is no stranger to the area, she is originally from Flora, Illinois and went to the University of Illinois. Now her and her family call St. Louis home.
