Before the Story Airs: The babysitters

Posted July 9, 2014 12:50 p.m. EDT

WRAL anchor Renee Chou visits the newsroom with her newborn daughter, Elsa, as traffic reporter Brian Shrader, meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner and anchors Bill Leslie and Michelle Marsh look on.

At WRAL, it's always very exciting to see a newborn baby in the newsroom. Co-workers pop their heads out from cubicles and descend on the new mom or dad in seconds once the sound of a stroller is in earshot.

The latest baby to make her entrance is Elsa, Renee Chou's newborn daughter. The morning team wasted no time ushering Renee to a relaxing seat at the WRAL Sand Desk while they played "babysitter."

Thursday at 6 a.m., you will get to see a behind-the-scenes look at the visit, including some funny improv from Bill, Elizabeth, Michelle and Brian. Lots of fun was had by all! Check out the slideshow for a preview and be sure to watch the story on TV, Thursday morning!
