THIS OR THAT
|Christiane moved to Minnesota in May 2018, after spending nine years exploring three states in three regions. Living in different places has helped her understand the ever-changing world and, as a journalist, she loves bringing that understanding into your home.
Since arriving, Christiane has covered a wide range of stories, from the Minnesota State Fair, to the state legislature, to 10 days straight of George Floyd’s death and the unrest that followed.
Before WCCO, Christiane spent five years at WVIT in Connecticut. One of her most notable stories was that of Cassandra C, a 17-year-old girl who received forced chemotherapy as decided by the State Supreme Court. Christiane was also part of the station’s first consumer advocacy team called NBC Connecticut Responds. In two years, Responds recovered more than $250,000 for viewers.
Christiane is eager to find the heart of the story, whether it be about a military family spending Christmas 6,000 miles apart, graduating high school during a pandemic, or a raccoon climbing a St Paul skyscraper. The deep respect for storytelling is one of many things that brought her to WCCO and the Twin Cities market.
As a former college soccer player, Christiane loves giving back to the game through coaching and training young goalkeepers. She spends the rest of her free time biking, cooking and traveling. She lives in Minneapolis with her wife and two dogs, and is always up for a good meal and great conversation.
