THIS OR THAT
|Kirsten Mitchell joined the WCCO team as a reporter in November of 2021. A Saint Paul native, Kirsten is proud to tell stories in her home state. She graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities (Go Gophs!) and interned at WCCO during her time there.
Previously, Kirsten was a Weekend Anchor and Reporter at KSEE/KGPE in Fresno, California. She reported on the frontlines of wildfires and covered the state’s extreme drought.
She began her on-air career as a Multimedia Journalist in Panama City, Florida. While there, she covered Hurricane Michael, providing the community with lifesaving information during and after the category 5 storm. Her coverage earned her several awards including the 2018 Florida Associated Press Broadcasters Association award for best overall Multimedia Journalist and best General Assignment story.
While Kirsten’s blood may have thinned the past few years, she is thrilled to be home, just in time for a true Minnesota winter!
In her free time, she can be found spending time with her family, going on a run or hike, and exploring new restaurants around town.
