THIS OR THAT
Kate Raddatz joined the WCCO-TV team in April 2013, but it wasn’t her first time inside the newsroom. She worked as the “Good Question” intern in college. An Excelsior native and proud Gopher grad, she’s thrilled to be telling stories in the place she grew up.
Kate came to WCCO from WBAY-TV, the market leading news station in northeast Wisconsin. There she covered the Gubernatorial recall election from campaign headquarters, the mass shooting at the Milwaukee Sikh temple, and filled in as a sports reporter during the NFL season.
Growing up, Kate had her sights set on Broadway. She’s had the opportunity to perform at the Pantages Theater, Carnegie Hall, and for the Minnesota Twins, Timberwolves, and Gophers. In high school, her song writing transitioned to news writing and she never looked back. You can still find her singing around town today, though!
Kate lives in Minneapolis where you’ll often find her reading in a coffee shop or running along the lakes with her husband, John. Kate is passionate about sports, fitness, and giving back.
She’s always looking for story ideas. You can contact her here.
