THIS OR THAT
Nina Moini joined the WCCO-TV team in August of 2013. She reports on a wide range of topics during weekdays and weekend nights.
Nina grew up right here in Apple Valley (GO Eastview Lightning!), but was born in Denmark to Iranian parents who moved to the United States when she was 5 years old.
Nina found a passion for journalism at a young age through seeing good stories that show how people everywhere are more alike than different, regardless of their backgrounds.
Nina’s work in reporting breaking news has been recognized through Emmy awards and by the Society of Professional Journalists. She is also an active volunteer with Fraser, a Minnesota-based non-profit serving children and adults with Autism and other special needs.
Nina is a graduate of the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri, where she also earned a degree in Political Science. (Go Tigers!) After covering local government, health, and consumer news in sunny Fort Myers, Fla., she is thrilled to be back in her chilly hometown!
Nina loves to chat with viewers on Facebook and Twitter. You can find her on both. And please share your story ideas with her. She’s always looking for a good story and a good laugh.
