Kristen Vake is an anchor and producer for CBS 3 This Morning. She's always been a morning person, mostly due to her love of coffee.

Kristen is a Northland native, born and raised in Chisholm, Minnesota. She attended undergrad at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. She spent the last year reporting for stations across the country while working toward her Masters Degree at Northwestern University in Chicago.

Kristen is excited to be working close to home and in an area she finds absolutely beautiful.
