She is the winner of multiple Murrow and regional Emmy awards, as well as the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism.

It will mean that the news directors at three of the four major Twin Cities TV news stations are women, with Marian Davey the news director at FOX 9, and Kari Patey the director at WCCO-TV.

Kirk Varner is the news director at the ABC affiliate KSTP-TV.
