A hometown girl has landed a reporting job at a hometown TV station: Kate Raddatz, a native of Excelsior, is returning to WCCO-TV, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.
She told the Pioneer Press:
"Telling stories in my hometown is something I've always wanted to do. ... Being able to do that for the station I grew up watching, along with such an incredible team, is just the icing on the cake. I'm thrilled."
Raddatz most recently was on-screen at WBAY-TV in Green Bay, WI, but earlier had served as an intern at WCCO and the Pioneer Press, the newspaper said.
