Chrissy Gaetke

I grew up in the small town of Isanti, Minnesota. I graduated from Cambridge-Isanti High School in 2011 where I was involved in choir, tennis, dance and cheerleading. After graduation I attended Anoka-Ramsey Community College, where I graduated with my AA degree in 2012. In 2013 I moved to St. Cloud attending St. Cloud State University for my Mass Communications degree. While at SCSU I spent many hours working at the campus radio station - KVSC. I held many positions there including host of the Morning Show, the Noon Newswatch and the 4 p.m. News Edition. Being a reporter has always been a dream of mine. I started my professional career at WJON in the fall of 2015 as a news reporter/anchor. I absolutely love my job and never knowing what each day will bring. In my free time I like spending time with friends and family, cooking, working out, shopping, watching superhero movies, singing in my car and spending time with my American bulldog Piggy.
