A Minnesota native has joined WCCO-TV as a reporter, the Pioneer Press reports.

Kate Raddatz, who is from Excelsior, will begin with the station April 1.

At WCCO, Raddatz was an intern for reporter-anchor Jason DeRusha's "Good Question" segment, and she also interned as a multimedia journalist at the Pioneer Press.

Raddatz also was a reporter for the Minnesota Daily at the University of Minnesota.

She was most recently a news reporter for WBAY-TV, an ABC affiliate in Green Bay, Wis.

Raddatz told the Pioneer Press that telling stories in her hometown is something she's "always wanted to do," and being able to do that "for the station I grew up watching, along with such an incredible team, is just the icing on the cake."

Here's a glimpse at some of her work:
