Real Leaders with Roshini: KSTP-TV's Elizabeth Ries is a talk show host who loves playing in the dirt

Thursday, February 6th

When Elizabeth Ries didn't get the same high from breaking news as her TV colleagues, she knew she was ready to leave news reporting and take on a daily talk show. Co-host of Twin Cities Live on ABC Minneapolis since 2009, she hasn't looked back. She added podcast host to her repertoire with Best to the Nest, which has earned number 1 status on Apple Podcasts in the home and garden category. She loves growing her own food and getting eggs from her backyard chickens. In fact, she'd grow squash and make jam for a living if she weren't a TV host. Her Dirt Alerts on MyTalk FM help fill her daily dirt quotient.
