Matt Brickman mans the weather wall on WCCO This Morning, Monday thru Friday.
Growing up in New England, Matt got his fair share of snow and subzero wind chills, but didn’t catch the weather bug until he started his career in television in Champaign, Ill. After falling in love with weather, Matt immediately enrolled at Mississippi State University, where he studied Broadcast Meteorology.
When he’s not at WCCO-TV, you’ll find Matt out running with his wife Kate, or tending to their small zoo at home with dog Gus and cats Hot Sauce and Crash.

Completed in June of 2006, the gravity defying structure at the Guthrie Theater is architect Jean Nouvel’s signature feature.
From the parking lot, you can tell that this is more than a run-of-the mill municipal park.
You might see malts elsewhere on the fairgrounds, but if you want the best, you’ve gotta go to the source–the Dairy Building.
There are so many reasons to love the Minnesota State Fair. For some it’s the food, for others it’s the rides. But for many, it’s getting to see all the farm animals up close.
For bargain hunters, flea markets are a gold mine. No matter how odd the item you’re looking for, there’s a good chance you’ll find it at a flea market. So we wanted to find the best in Minnesota. Your votes sent me about an hour northwest of the cities to the Wright County Swappers’ Meet near Annandale.
In the summer, there’s nothing better than fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden. But a large percentage of our community simply doesn’t have access to that. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is trying to change that.
With 160 acres of rolling hills and grape vines, Carlos Creek Winery is the type of place where you can you forget you’re in Minnesota. But make no mistake, this is Minnesota wine.
In the summer, Minnesotans love to be outside. That might mean kayaking, golfing, hiking or just gardening. But all that activity can leave you a little sore. So this week, Matt Brickman went to find the best place in Minnesota to get a massage.
