Renai is a 25 year veteran of the television news business and KPCW is her first venture in radio reporting.  Renai was a television news producer in Roanoke, VA, Richmond, VA, Miami, FL, and Washington, DC before moving to Utah in 1996 to be the Executive Producer at KSTU Fox 13.  In 1999, she was promoted to Vice President/News Director.  Under Renai’s tenure, Fox 13 expanded its news coverage from 2.5 hours to 10 hours of news a day.  She retired in July, 2015, to enjoy her new home in Park City; but she couldn’t stay out of a newsroom for long.  Less than a month later she signed on with KPCW as a reporter.  Her focus is on Wasatch County and Heber City, but she also enjoys telling stories that appeal to KPCW listeners everywhere.  She would also love to be a volunteer DJ, but alas, she is forbidden from sharing her love for Barry Manilow, Carpenters and Bread on the air.  

Renai is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, Investigative Reporters and Editors, and the Radio Television Digital News Association.  She grew up in Virginia and graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in English Language and Literature. She was an inaugural fellow of the Carole Kneeland Project for Responsible Journalism (1998) and has been invited back several times as a speaker and attendee.  Renai has a passion for politics and was a founding board member of the Utah Debate Commission.   She considers Utah home, and enjoys playing the role of Park City tour guide for her out-of-state friends and family.
