Marielle Mohs is thrilled to be telling stories in her home state of Minnesota. She grew up in Eden Prairie and then moved to Linden Hills just before starting high school at Benilde-St. Margaret’s.

She’s a reporter/multi-media journalist at WCCO, which means she often shoots and edits her own stories before going on-air.

Before coming back home, Marielle was a reporter in St. Louis, MO at KMOV. She mostly told feature stories for a segment called “St. Louis Proud.” She was nominated for a Midwest Emmy in 2018 and won a Missouri Broadcasters Award in 2019. While in St. Louis, she got to cover the 100th PGA Championship and the St. Louis Blues winning the Stanley Cup in 2019, both were career highlights!

Marielle began her career after college in Little Rock, Arkansas at KTHV. She started as a producer and quickly transitioned to a reporter, then investigative reporter and then weekend evening anchor.

But Marielle’s humble beginnings are some of her favorite jobs to date, which include scooping ice cream at Sebastian Joe’s in high school and serving buckets of fries at the Fresh French Fries stand at the Minnesota State Fair during her summer breaks in college.

Marielle loves skiing, both water and snow. She went to college in Denver, so she could ski every weekend in the winter.

Most people call Marielle “Elle,” so you may hear that while watching WCCO.
