Annalise Johnson is an Iowa native, born and raised in Decorah, but now calls Southeastern Minnesota home.
Her passion for writing began when she was a child writing songs and short stories. However, her interest in news journalism began in high school, where she was an All-State Speech qualifying anchor in the television news category.
She attended Luther College (’18) in Decorah, Iowa, where she received a bachelor’s degree in communication studies and a minor in English writing. Her senior research paper, “The Effects of Self-Disclosure in Interpersonal Relationships Post-Sexual Assault: Giving Survivors a Voice,” received the Top Student Paper Award at the 2017 Iowa Communication Conference and was published in the 2018 Iowa Communication Journal. During her time at Luther, she spent a semester studying abroad in Thailand at Mahidol University; a month studying in Europe; and a month studying in Belize. She also sang in choir, volunteered as a certified sexual assault and domestic abuse victim counselor, and was co-captain of the football cheerleading squad. Go Norse! She is passionate about traveling and even has her SCUBA diving certification.
After graduating a semester early from Luther, Annalise joined the KIMT News 3 team as a reporter in February 2018. You can sometimes find her behind the desk filling in. When she is not bringing you your local news, she enjoys spending time with her MinPin Norman, listening to true crime podcasts, and reading. If you have a story idea or just want to say hello, you can reach her at email@example.com.
