THIS OR THAT
|Kim Johnson joined the WCCO-TV team in May 2014. You can find her anchoring WCCO This Morning Monday through Friday. She also anchors WCCO 4 News at Noon and contributes on the WCCO Mid-Morning show.
As a native of Maple Grove, covering stories in her home state has always been a dream. For Kim, there’s no better place to do it than WCCO. She interned here while attending the University of Minnesota.
Throughout her career, Kim’s peers have honored her with the prestigious Regional Edward R. Murrow award for her emotionally candid stories of breast cancer survivors. Her undercover investigations have stopped retail stores from selling FDA-banned drugs. Her relentless questioning forced city leaders to finally fix a sewer pipe in a low-income Duluth neighborhood that had been flooding people’s basements for more than a decade. Kim’s work has earned her three Emmy Awards. She was also privileged to participate in the William Randolph Hearst National Television Broadcast News Competition.
Kim has covered the gamut from forest fires, the 35W Minneapolis bridge collapse to traveling with a local civil rights leader all the way to Washington D.C. for President Obama’s Inauguration. Kim’s thirst to cover the big political stories is partly what led her to Iowa just in time for the 2012 Republican Presidential caucuses where Kim produced and anchored a live newscast from caucus headquarters, giving viewers the latest numbers on the fly.
Kim is a big believer is giving back. When she’s not working in the newsroom, you can find her volunteering with one of her favorite charities: the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance or the American Cancer Society.
She also craves the outdoors. So if you see her on the running trail, ski slopes or sipping a hoppy IPA on an outdoor patio, make sure to say hi! Kim is always looking for great story ideas. You can contact her at email@example.com.
