In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Kylie Bearse.

The family moved to Arizona later and that was where Kylie graduated high school. Following her time at high school, Kylie joined the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Colorado.
Love for the weather:
Kylie did weather reports while she was still at University and hated when people called her the weather goal. However, her views changed when she interned at 9 News and got to interact with fellow female meteorologists. Following her internship, Kylie decided to go back to college and started working on her meteorology degree. Talking about the experience, Kylie revealed,
“I originally went into journalism because I was good at reading and writing, it came really easy to me and I loved it. If I’m being honest, I was afraid of going back to school to study Meteorology and focus on science, but I actually enjoyed it and surprised myself when I was good at it. Becoming a scientist is one of the things I’m most proud of. ”
After a brief stay at the city of Perugia in Italy, Kylie took her first job in Idaho as the weekend weather anchor & reporter at KIFI. After realizing that she wanted to do weather full time, Kyle moved to Salt City and took up the job of forecasting the weekend weather at ABC4. After calling time at ABC4, Kylie decided to move back to Minnesota and started working with WCCO. She joined the network in 2014 and worked until 2018, after which she took on a new challenge and joined 9 News as a weather reporter.
While Kylie fell in love with the weather during her first job at Idaho, she sees whether as a form of communication and creating networks. Talking to Her Campus, Kylie revealed her deep love and appreciation for the weather, and how it fitted her personality.
“What I love the most is that you have an instant connection with anyone – you can go anywhere in the world and weather is something we all have in common. The weather impacts everyone’s lives, and for a lot of people it has a huge impact on their livelihood, like farmers.”
Even though Kylie has established herself as one of the leading meteorologists, she did have a rough time during her early years. She struggled with fan e-mails that were filled with hate comments. And while Kylie has learned to respond with kindness whenever she can, she revealed that the hate e-mails continue to pour. Regardless, Kylie loves her job as a meteorologist and considers herself lucky to be doing what she loves.
Apart from her profession Kylie also hosts a series entitled “Kylie’s Kids”, where she meets different brave young children battling a variety of diseases located in most of Minnesota’s children hospitals.
