Jaymes Langrehr

Jaymes grew up in West Salem. After graduating high school, he went to college at Hofstra University on Long Island, New York, where he graduated with honors with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. If you're going to learn about TV news, there aren't many places better to be in than New York.

After school, Jaymes returned to the La Crosse area and started at News 8 in June 2010 as floor crew on News 8 This Morning. He eventually became a director for News 8 at Noon and News 8 at 5, and after three years in the control room, he returned to his roots in the newsroom, first as an assistant producer for News 8 This Morning and then as the producer for News 8 at 5 before producing News 8 at 6 and News 8 at 10. He's currently the Executive Producer of News 3 This Morning in Madison.

Favorite song?

It's impossible to only choose one. "Float On" by Modest Mouse, "That's Life" by Frank Sinatra and "All Apologies" by Nirvana are all on my Top 25 Played list in iTunes, so it's an interesting mix of styles.

Favorite band?

The Black Keys, with Nirvana and Green Day rounding out the top three.

Favorite way to spend a day off?

Binge-watching Netflix while telling myself I should be doing something more productive.

What sports team are you a big fan of?

Baseball is my favorite sport, and I'll have the Brewers game on just about every night during the summer.

Pizza -- sausage, pepperoni or everything on it?

Give me a supreme style with a little bit of everything so I can pretend I'm eating something healthy.

What do you like about your job?

No two days are alike, and every day is a clean slate. If yesterday was a good day, you start over and do it again. If yesterday was the worst day of your life, you get another chance today.
