Heather Brown was happy to return to WCCO-TV in November 2012 after two years of reporting for WNYW-TV in New York City.
In the Big Apple, she primarily covered the New York City Public Schools, but had the opportunity to report on Hurricane Sandy, the 10th Anniversary of September 11th, as well as much of the breaking news an area of 19 million has to offer.
Heather had been at WCCO-TV from 2006 through 2010. Some of her most memorable stories have included the destructive forest fires in the Boundary Waters, the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, and the 35W bridge collapse. She also reported for CBS News on the historic flooding in Fargo and tornadoes in Western Minnesota.
Before her journey to Minnesota, Heather worked at WIS-TV in Columbia, S.C. There, she was fortunate enough to cover the 2004 S.C. Democratic presidential primary, report on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina from Biloxi, and produce an award-winning education series that helped students get school supplies needed in many South Carolina classrooms.
Heather is a born-and-raised Philadelphia gal. Her mom, dad, 203-pound Great Dane Bart, and 60-pound Boxer Lily still live there. She graduated with honors from Colgate University, so cold winters are nothing new!
After college, Heather worked at CNBC in Los Angeles producing business news stories. She spent almost two years on the west coast before heading to Boston. In 2003, she earned a master’s degree in public policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
She’s proud of her Department of Natural Resources firefighting certification, participation in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Program and nine marathons. (The 2010 Twin Cities race was her PR!)
There’s a good chance you’ll find Heather and her husband running the Chain of Lakes or hitting up fun restaurants around town. But, give her a good book in front a warm fireplace and she’ll disappear for hours.
Jonathan Smith of Concept Landscaping is not going to wait any longer to start working on Lake Minnetonka.
It’s no secret. Many Minnesotans are sick of the long winter season and so are thousands of high school students who’ve had to practice inside and cancel games.
Toni Scribner is at her best first thing in the morning. It’s when she walks around the neighborhood, makes her own breakfast or even gets dressed –- all things she couldn’t do three months ago.
All that snow and ice has many of us feeling a little sick of winter, especially since it supposed to be spring.
Washburn High School’s principal of six years has been removed from her post and reassigned within the Minneapolis school district.
The snow expected to come down Wednesday night and linger into Thursday will likely be heavy and wet. Some referred to it as heart-attack snow.
By Minneapolis city law, the winter season is considered Nov. 1 through April 1, meaning the city can’t declare a snow emergency, even if several inches fall on Thursday.
The saying used to be “Money doesn’t grow on trees, kids.” Now, it’s more like, “Mom and Dad’s money just doesn’t pop out of the ATM.”
With all the ice and snow melting over the past few weeks, there has been plenty of water to wash away on our streets.
Studies show the insanity defense is used in less than 1 percent of cases and only about a quarter of those cases are successful.
Sunday night’s NCAA basketball game between Duke and Louisville took a terrible turn when Louisville guard Kevin Ware fell awkwardly and broke his right leg in two places. The video was so disturbing that the networks stopped showing it.
With March Madness back on the minds of millions of Americans, WCCO is hitting “Reply All” to your Good Questions.
Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but it falls on a different date every year.
So many times, the WCCO Good Question team gets turned down for interviews. Often, they are told it’s just simple nerves.
They’ve been called arguably the best women’s college hockey team ever. This past weekend, the undefeated Gopher women’s hockey team won their 49 consecutive game as well the national championship – but it wasn’t shown on television.
