Buuuurrrrrrr! Chilly Reception for new Minneapolis Anchor


She might be wondering "Why did I take this job?"

New KMSP Anchor Kelcey Carlson got a seriously chilly reception when she arrived in Minnesota a couple of weeks ago, but it had nothing to do with the viewers.

Carlson came from North Carolina and the new Fox 9 anchor was greeted by brutally cold temps that kept her and her family from moving into their house right away.

"We arrived on a Monday night, and the next day it was going to be in the negatives," explained the good-natured Carlson, who most recently anchored and reported at WRAL-TV in Raleigh, N.C. "Wednesday was going to be almost 20 degrees, so the movers asked us if we could give them one more day, and we said sure. Then we'd have happy movers putting furniture down nicely."

Carlson, who grew up in northern Indiana, said her first few days on Fox 9 have been "so far, so good," adding that her colleagues have made the transition "easy" and "comfortable."

One of Carlson's passions is running, and she tries to log around 45 miles a week. She has already joined a local running group.

And we're betting that she's thinking summer can't get here fast enough.
