New co-host named for KSTP's 'Twin Cities Live'


KSTP has named Steve Patterson, a reporter and anchor in the station's newsroom, as the new co-host for its afternoon program "Twin Cities Live." Patterson will be paired with current co-host Elizabeth Reis.

According to his bio on the Twin Cities Live website, Patterson joined KSTP in December of 2013. Before coming to the Twin Cities, he worked for Hubbard Broadcasting's cable network REELZ Channel in Los Angeles and Albuquerque, New Mexico. Patterson was born in Pittsburgh, attended high school in Pennsylvania and college in California. He is married and the father of two young children.

Viewers of the show weighed in on the TCL Facebook page with congratulatory messages for Patterson.

In February, Chris Egert, the previous co-host, left the variety program to return to duties anchoring KSTP's morning newscast. In the interim, a series of guest hosts, including Patterson, have joined Reis on the set of the daily show.

Patterson will begin his co-hosting duties on July 21. Until then, he continues to work as a reporter for the station's newscasts. On Monday, he was covering the flooding along the St. Croix River that led to the shutdown of Stillwater's Lift Bridge.
