New Anchor Hired in the Twin Cities

WCCO has hired a Minnesota native to be its new Saturday morning anchor.

The Pioneer Press says that Kim Johnson will start her new job (which includes weekday reporting) with the station on May 12. She will be coming to WCCO from KTVX, the ABC affiliate in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Johnson interned for WCCO while attending the University of Minnesota.

Aristea Brady, who was anchoring the WCCO Saturday morning news along with reporting, left the station earlier this month to move back to her home state of Colorado with her husband.
