You know a team truly is more of a family when co-workers get choked up as the news is announced that someone is leaving.  That tearful goodbye happened on Friday, July 1st, at KIMT News 3 in Rochester, Minnesota as another reporter in the Rochester community said goodbye.


Brooke McKivergan, who has been working at KIMT News 3 since she graduated college 4.5 years ago, signed off from KIMT News 3 in Rochester, Minnesota on Friday.  If you've watched her these past few years, you know she has a contagious smile, an infectious laugh, and has been a joy to see on-air.  I know she will be missed by many but you can tell from the goodbye that happened on the set of KIMT News 3 that she will be missed by her co-workers even more.

Life update! After 4.5 years at KIMT, I'm signing off. It has been such a joy to share the stories of southern Minnesota and northern Iowa these last few years. Thank you for trusting me, and welcoming me into your home every morning. I'm headed back to Columbus, Ohio to be with family and friends who have eagerly awaited my return for quite some time now! Rochester will always have such a special place in my heart. Stay tuned for my next adventure 💙 - Brooke McKivergan's Facebook Page


Thank you, Brooke, for being a smile for our community each morning!  As many people have said on Facebook, good luck on your next adventure in life, and enjoy those moments with family.
