THIS OR THAT
|Kylie Bearse is the co-host and meteorologist on WCCO MidMorning with Jason DeRusha. Born in the middle of a Minnesota snowstorm — it’s no surprise Kylie grew up to love, study and forecast weather. While Kylie moved around growing up, she was born in Burnsville, and also lived in Eden Prairie, making Minnesota home.
Outside of Mid-Morning, Kylie is usually bouncing around Minnesota’s outstanding children’s hospitals. Each Monday she lets the kids in them tell their stories in Kylie’s Kids. It’s easily her favorite part of the week.
Kylie began her career at KIFI in Idaho Falls, Idaho. She comes back to the Midwest from KTVX in Salt Lake City, Utah. Kylie has a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) and is now pursuing her meteorology degree online with Mississippi State University.
Kylie’s usually running around downtown Minneapolis or coaching with the Girls on the Run. She’s a brunch and happy hour connoisseur, a huge fan of the Minnesota theater scene and also strongly believes that the baseball season is far too short and would spend every night at Target Field if she could.
