THIS OR THAT
|Liz Collin made her broadcast debut covering a tornado that touched down in southwest Minnesota at a small radio station. She was in high school and it wasn’t pretty.
Since those radio days in her hometown of Worthington, Minnesota, she’s held producing, investigative reporting and anchoring positions at TV stations around the country.
In the last decade, Liz’s stories at WCCO have helped shape Minnesota public policy. Daycare centers must now have more trained CPR staff following her series about a little girl who choked to death at a Mankato daycare. Minneapolis added more 911 dispatchers after her stories highlighting wait times as long as 3 minutes, contributing to at least one death.
From chronicling a Stillwater family’s fight with Alzheimer’s, to asking the hard questions after it took months to arrest Hennepin County’s most prolific heroin dealer, Liz’s Emmy-award winning reports and newscasts have helped move Minnesota forward. The work that matters most to her.
