I am so deeply sadden. Denise was a true professional and a tribute to her profession. Her smile radiated, her graceful poise was engaging and when Denise spoke she had my full attention. I say my prayers for her husband and daughter, her family and all of her WFSB family. Denise has left her footprint that will never be forgotten.


My husband and I were very saddened to awake this morning to the shocking & tragic news of Denise D’Ascenzo’s sudden & unexpected passing. She was always our favorite news person, so highly respected & beloved by so very many! Denise & her pleasant manner & almost always smiling face will be missed by countless numbers of her fans but most strongly by her family as well as her WFSB news family. Our condolences, sympathy & prayers for strength go out to all in her life as they struggle to go on without her by their sides. Rest in peace dear Denise. We all know that God has welcomed you home to His side where she’s now a true angel looking out for all those she left behind! 😘💔🙏


How saddened to read about Denise. She was a consummate news anchor and had a smile who could melt the toughest critics. Condolences to her husband, daughter and of course the Eyewitness news team.


I am crushed and at a loss for words. I've watched Denise for 30 years on WFSB. She was the kindest person and a woman that was the epitome of class. Heaven has gained an angel. My condolences to her family and her WFSB family.


I was saddened to see the news that Denise D'Ascenzo suddenly passed away. She was a consummate professional, deftly making use of a lovely mezzo voice in her work and always conducting herself with humility and kindness. Having worked with her a few times, I walked away thinking "This is someone to look up to."


So sad for a really nice person. She will be missed. My condolences to her family.

I'm going to miss you Mrs Denise D'Ascenzo


Denise has been my favorite anchor for over 30 years. She was always down to earth, kindhearted and professional - a beautiful person with the most wonderful smile. This is such a shock. She will be so missed. 💔

Heartfelt condolences to her family, her coworkers and all who love her. 💜
