Cole Premo joined WCCO as an Emma L. Bowen mentorship student in the summer of 2005. After four summers of working and learning an amazing amount about how TV news works, Cole was hired full-time as a web producer in 2009.
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 a local blues rock band, Six Shot Love, that plays around the metro area. So, it only makes sense that he now interviews musicians of various levels of success who are playing shows in Minnesota.
