There is a new co-host on WCCO MidMorning with Jason DeRusha. 

DeRusha announced Wednesday that Heather Brown will take the co-hosting chair vacated by Kylie Bearse when she left for a new TV job in Colorado at the beginning of April.

Brown is best known in the Twin Cities market as the reporter who answers WCCO's "Good Question" during the 10 o'clock news. She'll continue that segment in addition to co-hosting MidMorning. 

"As someone who worked at WCCO for a long time and then got the chance to step up and anchor a show, it's so encouraging to see another great reporter and colleague get the chance to shine," DeRusha wrote on Facebook. "We have great people here. Heather Brown is going to be a terrific addition to MidMorning - I can't wait!!"
