ROCHESTER, Minn. – KTTC-TV (NBC), the leading television station in the Rochester-Austin-Mason City market, has named Robin Wolfram as an Anchor/Producer for its weekday 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts. Wolfram will join co-anchor Tom Overlie on the desk for the television market's #1-rated newscasts at 6 and 10 p.m. (Nielsen, May 2011) along with Chief Meteorologist Randy Brock and Sports Director Pat Lund. She will solo anchor the KTTC NewsCenter at 5 p.m., joined by Randy Brock from the KTTC Precision Weather Center.
Over the course of her career, Wolfram has worked as a news anchor for KMSP Fox 9 in Minneapolis-St. Paul, WTHR-TV in Indianapolis, KIMT-TV in Mason City, Iowa, and WQAD-TV in Moline, Illinois.
"We're delighted that Robin will be joining our excellent staff at KTTC NewsCenter," said Noel Sederstrom, the station's News Director. "Her most recent experiences in real estate, home design services, media production and working as Director of Development for the non-profit organization TreeHouse have positioned her to return to broadcast journalism with a real understanding of the business community."
Wolfram is a native of Ventura, Iowa, and a Cum Laude graduate of Marycrest College and the University of Iowa earning a B.A. degree in Communications in 1989. In 1987, as Miss Iowa, she represented her home state in the Miss America Scholarship Pageant.
"I'm thrilled to be coming home...and I think my family might be even more excited," said Wolfram, "my dad was the mayor of Ventura for 24 years and is the king of promotion. KTTC and I have had a hard time keeping this news under wraps until the official announcement as my dad was gnawing at the bit to contact every newspaper in the region! I've had my eye on this position for over a year now and as they say, patience pays."
The job opened up in early July when former KTTC anchor Rachel Wick left the staff to be a stay-at-home mom after the birth of her and husband Eric's first child.
"Robin has that special something and people really connect with her," said KTTC Station Manager Liz Dahlen. "I love the fact that she is community-minded, because community service is such a big part of our core values at KTTC. We're so looking forward to having Robin on board to be a part of our station campaigns like Cardboard Box City to fight homelessness, the Chair Affair to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club, the KTTC Toy Drive for Christmas Anonymous, and the 58th annual KTTC Eagles Cancer Telethon."
In addition to most recently working for the non-profit organization TreeHouse, which provides services to at-risk youth and their families, Wolfram has also been active over the years with the Children's Miracle Network, Cystic Fibrosis Society, the Animal Humane Society, and Life's Missing Link.
Wolfram was honored with an Emmy for her anchor work at KMSP in Minneapolis; she was named "Best Weekend Anchor" by Indianapolis Monthly magazine while at WTHR; and her work was awarded Best Series Reporting from the Iowa Broadcasters Association while working at KIMT.
Robin will begin her anchor/producer duties at KTTC on August 22.
