Liz Collin Biography
Liz Collin is an Anchor/Reporter at WCCO-TV since joining the station in 2008. She made her broadcast debut at KWOA radio in Worthington covering a tornado that touched down in southwest Minnesota at a small radio station. At that time Collin was in high school and it wasn’t pretty.
Since those radio days in her hometown of Worthington, Minnesota, Collin has held producing, investigative reporting and anchoring positions at TV stations around the country.
She got her first real on-air opportunity at KDLT-TV in Sioux Falls where she worked for two years. She then worked at KWCH-TV, where she covered some hard-hitting stories like problems at a military school in Salina. In 2008, she joined WCCO in her home state of Minnesota.
In the last 10 years, her stories at WCCO have helped shape Minnesota public policy. Following Liz’s series about a little girl who choked to death at a Mankato daycare, daycare centers must now have more trained CPR staff. Minneapolis added more 911 dispatchers after Liz’s stories highlighting wait times as long as 3 minutes, contributing to at least one death.
