Two new reporters have joined the KARE 11 news team, the Pioneer Press reports.

Adrienne Broaddus, who is from Michigan, comes from WISH-TV in Indianapolis. Broaddus (pictured, above left) has also worked in her home state, in both Lansing and her hometown of Saginaw.

A New York City native, Melissa Colorado comes to KARE from KOAT in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Colorado (pictured, above right), who will be featured on "KARE 11 Sunrise," also worked as a freelance video journalist for WPIX in New York City.

The new hires started about the same time veteran reporter Scott Seroka left the station.

The Star Tribune says Seroka and John Elder were hired last month by the Minneapolis Police Department to replace spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington, who left her position in December.

Seroka, who was a reporter for for seven years at KARE 11, left the station earlier this month.
