Rob Olson


Rob tells a story like few others in our business; in fact, a lot of us here at FOX 9 think he should write a book someday.

Rob reports weekdays for FOX 9 News; and he’s never seen a State Fair or Minnesota Wild story that he didn’t like.

Rob grew up in four different towns in Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota so his roots run deep. And he must like flying; he once circumnavigated the globe….he left New York and kept flying east until they he hit Hawaii. We imagine there was a stop or two. Oh, and that meant he crossed the International Date Line and had two Tuesdays. At least it wasn’t two Mondays.
