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.

All this week, WCCO This Morning has been turning to local companies for unique gift ideas. Today, they had a little something for the sole. Shoe soles, that is. A former graffiti artist is now a master cobbler who is making colorful kicks in Waconia. His specialty is making what’s old new again.
As we get ready for the weekend, we want to help you get ready as well. Everyone is getting in the holiday spirit, and you can do the same with these weekend events.
The popular Advanced Auto Parts Monster Jam event visits the Metrodome for the last time on Saturday. The action starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are still available at Ticketmaster outlets. Prices start at $20 dollars for adults and $10 bucks for kids ages 2-12.
As we get ready for the weekend, we want to help you get ready, too. And with these frigid winter temps coming this weekend, here are some events to keep you toasty.
The Twin Cities was pounded by several inches of snow on Wednesday, and now cold temperatures and freezing wind chills are arriving behind it to mark an early arrival for winter. With that comes the increased danger for frostbite. It’s brutal, and even dangerous. We hear a lot about frostbite in the winter, and we wondered what exactly is it?
It may be Black Friday, but locally-speaking, some Minnesota shops are looking forward to tomorrow: Small Business Saturday. Many of these small businesses can’t compete with blowouts the big box retailers have.
As we get ready for the weekend, we want to help you get ready as well. After you’ve had your fill of turkey and stuffing, get up and get moving with one of these weekend events.
All this week, The WCCO This Morning Show team has been sharing their favorite family recipes. As we found out, Natalie’s family loves the butter. They shared their stuffing and carrot soufflé recipes, plus what makes the potatoes fluffy.
All week the WCCO Morning Show is sharing its favorite family recipes in time for your Thanksgiving. Today, Natalie Nyhus challenges Jason DeRusha’s stuffing recipe with her own family favorite.
As the weather cools and Thanksgiving approaches, people are beginning to think about Holiday decorating. Renae Keller from Renae Keller Interior Design talked with Natalie Nyhus about the trends to hit home interiors this season.
Everyone has an idea for a business, but few actually go for it. Not this guy. Marc Keiser from Oakdale and a graduate of the University of St. Thomas took his senior year business plan and launched it. Eight years later, Marco V has become an international company of cigars, port-like wine and coffee.
It’s Thursday, and if you don’t have weekend plans yet, you’d better pull some together quickly. This weekend, stay out of the cold with a coffee festival and get a jump on your holiday shopping with these events.
How good is your memory? This Tuesday is National Memory Screening Day, and several facilities in the Twin Cities will be offering free memory screenings for those who are worried about developing a recall problem.
