Brittany FalkersNews Anchor/Reporter

Brittany Falkers started her career in television news at WDIO as a reporter in February 2012. After a brief stint reporting on a variety of stories involving the City of Duluth and Parks and Recreation, Brittany has moved on over to the news desk to co-anchor Good Morning Northland.  Brittany says she is excited about this new challenge, and doesn't even mind the early work hours.

Joining Eyewitness News marks her return to Duluth. The Forest Lake, Minnesota native attended UMD her freshman year before transferring to the Twin Cities campus. She completed a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication.

Brittany got her first taste of television broadcasting at "Twin Cities Live." Interning for KSTP-TV really prepared her for opportunity at WDIO. Brittany says she loved her time in Minneapolis, but that she’s happy to be back in the Twin Ports.

“I’m so lucky to be back and reporting in this community," Brittany says. "I love the many things that make this place so special.”

When Brittany isn’t out covering stories as a reporter, you can find her working on her guitar playing, out catching the latest concert, or taking in a live production.
