How much of their own money do teachers spend and what are they buying? Education Minnesota helped us reach 1,100 teachers for an exclusive WCCO survey. Christiane Cordero shows us what the survey revealed, Monday at 10.
While it's still early October, temperatures dipped below freezing across much of Minnesota Friday morning.This photo, taken by Debbie Center in Itasca State Park, captures the essence of our wintry autumn: snow, wet leaves and gray skies. #MNWX #Fall #Winter #Minnesota #WCCO #ItascaStatePark
INCREDIBLE VIDEO: Last month, tornadoes tore through southern Minnesota. One of them lashed @kampdels
in Waterville. This is surveillance video released this week by the owners. Watch as a van drives off right as the severe weather blasts into the campground. Note how the flagpole remains standing amid the onslaught.
On Monday morning, a sunrise ceremony was held at Bde Maka Ska in Minneapolis in honor of Indigenous Peoples Day. Dozens of cities across the nation, including Minneapolis, no longer celebrate Columbus Day and instead celebrate #indigenouspeoplesday
Well, fall was fun while it lasted. Michael Mock shared this stark shot from Bemidji Friday morning. 😬
Adorable! The Como Zoo is welcoming a new member to its giraffe herd. This baby female was born Wednesday, the 22nd giraffe baby born at Como Zoo. She measures 5 foot, 8 inches and weighs 120 pounds. We just had to share the cuteness! See more at @comozooconservatory
Severe storms are tracking across the Twin Cities tonight. Viewer Jacob Gohl sent us this photo from Eagan of a nasty looking wall cloud.
Wednesday is expected to bring summer-like dewpoints and some potentially strong thunderstorms to parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin, but as this picture from @jholovesmpls
shows, fall is still very much on track to take over our Instagram feed with lovely foliage! Tag your best #wcco
and we may share yours!
In 1969, a fresh-faced 17-year-old Mark Rosen walked into WCCO-TV and launched one of the most legendary careers in Twin Cities broadcasting, covering the Miracle on Ice at the 1980 Olympics, seeing the Minnesota Twins win two World Series championships, and earning a spot in the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
Mark Rosen has announced he will retire next spring, and being the film fan he is, we know he'll appreciate all his friends here at WCCO wishing him a cinematically bittersweet farewell.
In what could be his final MLB game, Joe Mauer put on the catcher's gear for one pitch in the top of the 9th before coming off the field to a standing ovation. Mauer is considering retiring after the season.
