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.
