Aristea Brady joined the WCCO-TV news team in July 2011 after a two-year stint as weekend anchor and reporter at KUSA in Denver.
A Colorado native, Aristea graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in Evanston, Ill. with majors in broadcast journalism, legal studies, and a minor in business institutions. While at Medill, Aristea was awarded a documentary grant to travel abroad to several European countries. The documentary compared European television coverage of “Operation Iraqi Freedom” against American media portrayals.
She freelanced for WYCC in Chicago, Chicago Access Network, and the Evanston Community Cable Channel before her television debut in Lexington, Ky. at the CBS affiliate where she worked as a general assignment reporter.
She also previously worked at KTVX, the ABC affiliate in Salt Lake City, where she covered high profile missing persons cases. She also covered the Trolley Square Massacre where a lone gunman walked into a mall and killed five bystanders. Several of her investigative reports worked to uncover scandal and ultimately led to state policy change.
Aristea has been recognized with a William Randolph Hearst Journalism Award and several Rocky Mountain Emmy nominations while anchoring “Good Morning Utah.”
Aristea says her favorite part of broadcast journalism is the constant unpredictability. On days she reports, she loves not knowing what she may be walking into: a sit-down with a Nobel Laureate, a foiled criminal, or even a neighborhood hero.
While Aristea tells all types of stories, she particularly enjoys medical and health stories. She loves sharing information that could potentially improve someone’s quality of life.
In her free time, Aristea enjoys traveling, attending sporting events and skiing. She is excited to see all that the Twin Cities have to offer.
You can see Aristea on the 10:00 pm news, Monday through Friday.
