Katie Steiner grew up in Hastings, MN (GO RAIDERS!) and loves everything about Minnesota. She left the greatest state in the union to go off to college and is absolutely thrilled to be back home.

Katie most recently worked in New Orleans, LA, where she was the weekend morning anchor and weekday morning reporter. She covered hurricanes, tropical storms, massive flooding events, and even a rare snowfall! Weather has always fascinated her, and she loves forecasting for the state of Minnesota.

Before New Orleans, Katie worked in Spokane, WA where she did a whole lot of everything. She started working as a general assignment reporter, moved to mornings, and finished up her time as the weekend weathercaster. Katie's first job on-air was at KOMU-TV, where she worked for four years while going to school at the University of Missouri.

Mornings are Katie's passion; she loves waking up well before the sun to make sure you are informed and ready for the day!

Katie is always active and very involved in her community. When she's not working, you will find her playing tennis, volleyball, swimming, water skiing (anyone with a course need a spotter???), snow skiing, cross country skiing, quilting, watching sports, and spending time with family. She is also very involved in her local church, singing at Saturday night mass.
