Cole Premo has been a web producer at WCCO since 2009. He joined WCCO as an Emma L. Bowen mentorship student in the summer of 2005. After four summers of working hard and learning an amazing amount about how TV news works, Cole was hired full-time.

Cole went to the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities) where he graduated with an English literature and New Media studies degree.

Cole’s passion — other than journalism — is music. He plays lead guitar and lead vocals in his solo band. So, it only makes sense that he now interviews musicians of various levels of success who are playing shows in Minnesota.
