Bill Hudson has been with WCCO-TV since 1989. The native of Elk River, Minn., says Channel 4 is the station he grew up with and aspired to work for.

“Dave Moore set the standard for all of us. I was blessed to have had the opportunity to work with one of the greatest!”

He is one of seven children, including two other brothers with careers in broadcasting. Jon does radio in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Rob is a television morning show anchor in Missoula, Montana. Must have been in the Uppertown water.

After spending stints reporting the news in Eau Claire and Milwaukee, Bill brought his skills to WCCO-TV as a general assignment reporter. In his many years with the station he’s covered a wide range of stories, including the Sioux City airline disaster, Hurricane Andrew, California Wildfires, the Waco siege and troops returning from Saudi Arabia following Desert Storm.

In addition, Bill has reported extensively on Minnesota’s contributions to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He accompanied the Minnesota National Guard to Panama and Honduras to cover stories involving anti-drug measures in Central America and nation building projects. In December 2003 he visited Minnesota National Guard soldiers on a peacekeeping mission in Bosnia.

Bill is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys being at the end of a fly rod or canoe paddle! He also likes to spend time in his wife Julie’s flower gardens doing the “heavy lifting!”

Bill and Julie have two grown daughters. His advice to all young parents is to enjoy every possible moment with your kids. Says Bill, “it’s diapers to diamonds in a heartbeat.”
