Worthington native Collin leaves WCCO

WCCO-TV anchor and reporter Liz Collin has left the station after nearly 14 years.


Wrote Collin, a native of Worthington, in a social media post Tuesday: “I want to thank you all for the support you have shown me in my home state of Minnesota. Thank you for trusting me to tell your stories. Thank you to the talented team who helped make that possible.”


Collin found herself in the headlines after the murder of George Floyd. She’s the wife of former Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll, who came under public scrutiny after Floyd’s death. About 100 Black Lives Matter protesters – including John Thompson, then a DFL-endorsed candidate for House District 67A – marched to the home of Collin and Kroll in August 2020 and demanded they both resign.


Collin said in 2019 that she did not think her marriage was a conflict of interest. She didn't state any further plans in Tuesday's social media post, but wrote "The truth makes me tick. I'll get back to telling that soon."
