Brooke McKivergan is KIMT News 3's Daybreak and Midday Anchor.

Title: DayBreak and MidDay Anchor
bmckivergan@kimt.com

Brooke McKivergan started with us in December of 2017 as a Multimedia Journalist. She became the DayBreak and MidDay Anchor in December of 2019.

Brooke’s passion for storytelling began when she was young, tasking her brother with being her cameraman as she reported for what she called, “PJ4 News” in her pajamas, of course.

She is from Columbus, Ohio, but is excited to now call Rochester home. Brooke graduated from The University of Akron in 2017. During her time there, she was a reporter and anchor for the university's news station where she won an Emmy Award for newsgathering and information. She was also a news reporter for the number one student-run radio station in the country, WZIP 88.1. Brooke was one of five students chosen from the country to travel to the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas with Waskul TV to be part of a week-long live production.

When Brooke is not chasing stories, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends and staying active with her goldendoodle, Winnie. She is eager to learn what Minnesota and Iowa are all about and learn what 'Minnesota Nice' really means!
