Rachel Slavik joined the WCCO team in October of 2010 and is thrilled to be back in her hometown.
Rachel spent three years in the sweltering heat of Baton Rouge, La. She anchored, produced, and reported at WVLA. During her time in the Deep South, she covered Hurricane Gustav, the BP oil spill, and on the weekends, tried to master the art of southern cooking.
Prior to that, she worked at KBJR in Duluth. There, she learned that you’ve never truly experienced winter until you’ve spent a cold January night in Embarrass, Minn.
In her spare time, you’ll find Rachel training for a marathon or half marathon, cooking and spending time with her dog, Butters.
