Natalie Nyhus joined the WCCO-TV team in January of 2011. She reports traffic, entertainment, health and lifestyle during WCCO This Morning.
Natalie is a Minnesota native (east side) who studied broadcast journalism, print journalism and theology at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn. She’s happy to work in her hometown and keeps her ear to the streets for the latest in Minnesota arts, entertainment and nightlife. Despite the early hours of the morning show (and she still insists she is not a morning person), she’s able to keep her finger on the pulse of the Twin Cities.
In addition to mornings with WCCO, you may see her sports reporting on Fox Sports North and Big Ten Network where she got her start on air. Prior to WCCO, she was on court with the Minnesota Timberwolves for five seasons as a fan and their in-arena host. She also worked with Hollywood 411 out of Los Angeles, hosted an arts and entertainment talk radio show on MyTalk 107.1 FM and covered nightlife at The CW Twin Cities.
Natalie loves talking music, pop culture, dining and fashion with viewers on Facebook and Twitter. You can find her at: facebook.com/natalienyhus and twitter.com/NatalieNyhus. For her latest fashion, cooking and home inspirations, connect with her on Pinterest at pinterest.com/NatalieNyhus.

Thursday is Halloween, and for many marks the start of the weekend. Many will be out trick-or-treating, but if that’s not your thing, here are a couple of unique things going on around town this weekend.
It’s not very often that we’re scared of the weekend, but this weekend in the Twin Cities, there are plenty of ways to get spooked, even for kids. Plus, there’s something for those who just can’t wait for the snow (speaking of scary).
It’s almost the weekend, so it’s time to start making some plans. From zombies to scares and even a 1,500- pound pumpkin, these events are all worth adding to your calendar.
This is the weekend many have been working toward for months. It’s time for the Twin Cities Marathon. But if running isn’t your thing, there are other events including an art crawl and chance to meet celebrity skiier Lindsay Vonn.
Natalie Kane loves fall — but loves soup during autumn even more. Her favorite is turkey wild rice and according to Kane, Keys Cafe in Minneapolis whips up one of the best renditions.
It’s down to the wire for those participating in the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon, with just over one week until the big race. People have been preparing and training for a long time, and you’d hate to mess up your training so close to race day.
If you’re working for the weekend, it’s a good one to be out and about in the Twin Cities. Oktoberfest celebrations are in full swing, and so are the fall festivities. Here are Natalie Nyhus’s suggestions to keep your weekend occupied with fun.
The Twin Cities may not be New York, Hong Kong, Montreal, London, Paris, or Tokyo. But Minnesota does has a budding fashion scene. The Hackwith Design House Spring 2014 collection will debut on the runway Sept. 25 as part of Minnesota Fashion Week.
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning some weekend fun. From scares to beer, we have found a few events worth adding to your social calendar.
Along with cooler weather comes fall fashion. In honor of Minnesota Fashion Week, which starts Friday, we are looking at three fall trends for women that are easy, affordable and good for all ages.
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning some weekend fun! This weekend, you can head into fall with a few activities that will get you outdoors.
How would you like to wear a $500 dress, return it and not get in trouble? A local boutique is now offering dress rentals. Instead of buying a dress outright, you can rent a designer gown for a fraction of the cost. That is, as long as you don’t mind wearing something that’s been worn before.
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning some fun for your days off. This weekend, you can kick off fall with some music, wine and sausage.
It’s the first day back at school for many children, and that means they’re out of parents’ sight for lunchtime. Whether you pack a lunch or do hot lunch, it can be tricky to make sure you child is eating properly at school.
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to start planning some weekend fun. It’s another weekend of festivals in Minnesota. Here are some events worth adding to your social calendar.
