Minneapolis-St. Paul FOX owned station KMSP has added Amy Hockert as special projects reporter and Anchor.

She joins KMSP from Rick Kupchella’s BringMeTheNews where she was chief content officer. She’s also worked in Minot and Fargo North Dakota as well as Raleigh, N.C. She was also an anchor and reporter at Minneapolis NBC affiliate KARE.

“I’m so impressed with the way FOX 9 balances tradition and innovation,” Hockert said. “The producers, reporters and anchors are legacy players who understand, inherently, what’s important to Minnesotans. At the same time, they’re bobbing and weaving with the ever-changing way people consume news. I have so much respect for this team’s innovative approach to quality news delivery and I’m excited to join the team.”
