LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Rachel Droze started at WHAS11 in August 2021. With an extensive background in political reporting, Rachel is excited to dive into Kentucky politics and get answers for Kentuckiana viewers.
Rachel came to Kentucky from WOI in Des Moines, Iowa, where she led the station’s political and investigative coverage. Her investigation into Des Moines Public School’s open enrollment policy led to an Iowa law being changed. Iowa is – of course – also home to the Iowa Caucus
