Kroll has said he’s fighting to help the officers involved in Floyd’s death get their jobs back because they were fired without due process.
WCCO-TV anchor/reporter Liz Collin is married to Bob Kroll. To avoid any potential conflict of interest, Collin has not reported on Minneapolis Police and Minneapolis Police union issues for at least two-and-a-half years.MORE NEWS: COVID In Minnesota: 4,511 Newly Reported Cases Over The Weekend; 44 More Deaths
