THIS OR THAT
|Liz Collin is a multi-Emmy-Award-winning reporter and anchor for WCCO-TV. A Worthington, Minnesota native, Liz was thrilled to return to her home state in 2008. Prior to that, Liz held producing, investigative reporting, and anchoring positions in Florida, South Dakota, Kansas, and Pennsylvania.
Liz’s stories at WCCO have helped shape Minnesota public policy. Most recently, her healthcare reporting gave faces to the statistics behind the COVID-19 pandemic that paralyzed the state as she found families from all walks of life willing to share their personal stories.
Daycare centers in Minnesota are required to have more trained CPR staff, following her series about a little girl who choked to death at a daycare. Minneapolis added more 911 dispatchers after Liz’s stories highlighted long waits for help contributing to serious injury and death.
From chronicling a Stillwater family’s fight with Alzheimer’s disease for five years, to asking the hard questions after it took months to arrest Hennepin County’s most prolific heroin dealer, Liz’s reports and newscasts move Minnesota forward. The kind of work that matters to her most.
Liz lives in the suburbs with her husband, son and yellow lab, Sarge.
