WCCO network is a well-known and much-loved network. The system might have tight management, but the unsung heroes are probably the hundreds of staff that keep the engine running. Making her mark as the anchor and reporter of WCCO, Kim Johnson has contributed so much to the firm.
She anchors WCCO's This Morning and Saturday Morning shows. Her professionalism and skills are the results of her years-long experience in the media field. She has not accumulated any awards to this date, but the possibility of getting one seems relatively higher as the days pass by.
Anchor Kim Johnson celebrates her birthday on the 29th of August every year. Her exact height is not known, but Kim is taller than 5 feet 3 inches, as confirmed by her friend Kylie Bearse.
Kim attended Maple Grove High School and was keenly interested in Volleyball as a teenager. She graduated in 2001. Then, she enrolled at the University of MN and did a double major in journalism and women’s studies. Also, she landed a minor in political science.
Asides from her career work, Kim also involves herself in volunteering projects. She is associated with the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance and the American Cancer Society charities.
Kim’s family has a massive influence on her career choice. Kim’s mother, Peggy Johnson, strictly watched TV news during dinner, which probably shaped her mindset.
Kim confessed that she hated the shows at first but slowly started appreciating the happenings around the community. She and her family stayed together in Maple Grove until Kim finished her University education. Then she moved to Minnesota for career pursuing.
