Wendy Rieger, a former reporter and anchor at NBC owned station WRC in Washington, D.C. has died after fighting brain cancer.

Rieger was first diagnosed with glioblastoma about a year ago and had surgery and treatment for it.

However, the cancer returned and on April 15, 2022, the day before her April 16, 2022, death, the station posted that she had entered hospice and that she was “… relaxed, comfortable and with her closest loved ones.”

Rieger, 65, retired from the station in December 2021, and died holding the hand of her husband, Dan, the station reported.
