Our go-to guy is leaving. Alan Hoglund, reporter, producer, and fill-in anchor has decided to take a producing job at our sister station, KSTP-TV in the Twin Cities.
His last day is Friday. But we wanted to show you some highlights on Thursday.
After joining the newsroom after graduating from Bethel University, he really morphed into a multi-talented journalist. He's really the only person in the newsroom who can technically fill any shift, producing, reporting, or anchoring.
Alan's also our 24/7 tweeter and social media maverick.
He's won awards for his investigative journalism, as well as some top-notch newscasts.
His passion is journalism. But when he puts his smartphone and reporter notebook down, he focuses on his true passion. Which is his family.
He and his wife Annie are expecting their first child, a boy, later this year.
We wish you well, Alan, but we wish you weren't leaving. You will be missed.
