After a year and a half on the news beat, Laura is very excited to be pursuing her passion for sports! Moving here from the Twin Cities, she's excited to get into the action with our local sports teams. You can find her anchoring the weekend sportscasts and covering sports stories around the Northland.
Laura joined the WDIO Team in September 2008. Laura has known she wanted to be a writer since she was five years old. "Journalism is a perfect fit for me because it's challenging, everyday is different, and I get to meet some really awesome people and hear their wonderful stories!"
Laura lived in Midlothian, Virginia for 8 years before moving back home to Minnesota. She graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism. She was recognized as the Outstanding Student in Broadcast Journalism during her senior year.
Throughout her college years, Laura produced the student-run news program Campus Scope. She also interned at KARE-11 News and KFAN Radio.
When she's not working at WDIO, Laura loves spending time with her family and her two dogs. Her interests include watching movies, baking, reading. And she usually does each of these things with a Twins, Vikings or Wild game playing in the background.
