Real Leaders with Roshini Season 2, Episode 7: WCCO TV's Liz Collin might have become a fiddler in a country band if the news bug hadn't bitten at a young age

Thursday, April 30th

Growing up in Worthington, Minnesota, Liz Collin found inspiration from how much her grandparents loved watching the news. She became a news junkie at a young age and got her broadcast debut covering a tornado in Southwest Minnesota while working at a small radio station. Eventually, she went on to report for TV stations around the US before landing at WCCO TV in Minneapolis. An Emmy-winning reporter, her investigative journalism has led to policy changes in the daycare industry as well as for Minneapolis 911 operators. You might not guess this hard-hitting newshound also plays the organ and the violin. In fact if she weren't a journalist, she'd be a fiddler in a country band. Her son Anthony makes her melt and focus on what's truly important. Liz cherishes every day she gets to watch him become the person he was meant to be.
