NBC News correspondent Kevin Tibbles is set to retire after a four-decade-long career in broadcast. Having covered some of the biggest international events in modern history, Tibbles is something of an icon in the business. His retirement has led to increased attention on his personal life, which he usually keeps low-key. It was his job that brought him together with his wife, Aimée Laberge. Social media users want to know more about who Kevin Tibbles’ wife is and her background. She has become a local personality in Chicago for her own work, which we reveal in this Aimée Laberge wiki.
Aimée Laberge’s Family
Marie-Andree “Aimée” Laberge was born on May 10, 1960, and hails from Quebec in Canada. She is one of five children born to René Laberge and Jacqueline Laberge.

Aimée Laberge’s Career
Aimée Laberge earned her MA in literature from Université Laval in her native Quebec. But her versatile career began long before that.
She was initially a graphic designer from the ‘80s. Laberge handled the art direction for news specials at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) from 1983 to 1991. She oversaw the on-air design at Live TV in London from 1996 to 1997.
Since settling in Chicago, Laberge has pursued creative writing, education, and French studies. She chaired the creative writing committee of Highland Park High School for a year and has featured as a guest speaker for French programs at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
She is also a published fiction writer in English and French. Some of her non-academic publications include Where the River Narrows and Les Amants de Mort-Bois.
Laberge has become synonymous with her work at the Alliance Français de Chicago since 2009. While she currently serves as the director of programs, she was previously a French teacher and led the creative writing workshop.
