“It has been gratifying to contribute to the success of Fox 9 during these past 3 years,” Collins said in a statement. “However, I have decided to explore new opportunities. It has been entirely my honor to serve the great people and communities in and around Mpls./St. Paul. Without a doubt, it is my much-appreciated viewers I will miss the most.”
Carol Rueppel, KMSP vice president and general manager said, “We want to thank Heidi for her contributions to the FOX 9 news team and we wish her much success in the future.”
Collins, whose last day on-air was July 29, previously worked at CNN. She started at KMSP in 2010.
