Katie Storm


Katie Storm returns for her third season as the Wolves’ TV sideline reporter.

She is a sports enthusiast passionate about people & storytelling. Her love of sports started at a young age, growing up as the only girl in the middle of 6 boys in Delano, MN. She was a three-sport athlete at Delano High School and made the University of Hawaii at Hilo Women’s Basketball team as a freshman walk-on. While warmer weather and a campus near the beach was nice, there wasn’t a program that supported Sports Broadcasting, so she decided to trade her jersey and sneakers for a microphone at St. Cloud State University.

SCSU is where Storm would find that she loved talking about sports just as much as she loved playing. During the college hockey season, she worked as a Rink-Side Reporter and In-Studio Host for the live-game broadcasts produced by Husky Productions.

In 2018, Storm was honored with the 2018 Jim Nantz Award as the top collegiate sports broadcaster in the country and the first woman in history to receive the Award. She started her career as a Reporter for FOX Sports North and covered Gopher Hockey, the Twins, the Timberwolves, the Lynx, the Minnesota Wild and other special sporting events like Hockey Day in Minnesota.

In August of 2019, she moved to the east coast and served as the Pre and Postgame Host of the Philadelphia Flyers on NBC Sports Philadelphia for the 2019-20 regular season and two rounds of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In the spring of 2021, returned to her home state of Minnesota and her Bally Sports North family. She is a Reporter and Host for the network, covering the Minnesota Twins and Timberwolves. Storm lives in Minnetonka, MN with her husband Ben.
