Natalie Nyhus joined the WCCO-TV team in January of 2011. She anchors Saturday mornings and the “Best of Minnesota” franchise. Prior, she was awarded multiple daytime Emmy awards with WCCO This Morning, where she anchored and reported on traffic, entertainment, health and lifestyles.
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.
In addition to working with WCCO, you may see her reporting for 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 their in-arena host and as a fan. 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.
