KARE reporter Dylan Wohlenhaus is leaving for Land 'O Lakes

The award-winning reporter is getting out of the TV business.

Minnesota native Dylan Wohlenhaus made his final appearance on KARE 11 Tuesday morning, ending his three-year run as a leading local news reporter and storyteller in the Twin Cities. 

Wohlenhaus, originally from Buffalo, Minnesota, made his announcement on Facebook, saying he's taking a job with Minnesota-based Land O'Lakes.  

"After a long thought out process I’ve decided to take off in a new direction and use my storytelling, media consulting and management abilities in the business world with a great Minnesota company, and a company that has connections to my family farming background, Land O’Lakes." 

He added that "it's just time" and that he's "leaving with a sense of fulfillment." 

Prior to his time with KARE, Wohlenhaus worked at TV stations in Washington and North Dakota.

He's an Emmy-winning and 5-time Edward R. Murrow-awarded journalist.
