Katie Steiner loves everything about her home state of Minnesota, and considers forecasting for Minnesota and Western Wisconsin such a privilege. Katie joined the WCCO team in the fall of 2018 and has loved every moment since.

Prior to coming home, Katie worked at the CBS affiliate in New Orleans, LA where she covered hurricanes, tropical storms, massive flash flooding events, and even a rare snowfall. She has also worked in Spokane, WA and Columbia, MO.  

Katie is passionate about Minnesota weather, and received her certificate in Meteorology from Mississippi State University.  

Katie's roots in Minnesota run deep, and she grew up surrounded by veterans. Her grandpa was an Army Reserve General based at Fort Snelling, her dad was a Navy pilot, and her uncle was an Air Force navigator. They made such an impact, her little sister was a Navy nurse, her little brother is a Navy jet pilot, and two of her cousins are in the Air Force and Marine Corps respectively. You can say the 4th of July is a pretty special day in the Steiner family.  

Katie, her husband, and children are active in the Twin Cities community. They love to be outside: skiing at the cabin, tennis in the summer, cross country skiing in the winter just to name a few. You will most likely find Katie and the kids watching local sports at night…Katie's daughter is obsessed! Her family is also very involved in their local church, where Katie sings regularly at mass.
