As a WCCO-TV Morning Anchor and Minnesota Monthly Food Critic, I use social media across many channels to connect with viewers, to share work I’ve broadcast or published, and to solicit feedback and story ideas. We have a lot of fun on social media, but I’m always mindful of the fact that I’m a journalist: I’m transparent about what we do as a station, and I own mistakes and immediately correct when possible.
Thanks to all the plow drivers and dispatchers who’ve been working since before Thanksgiving! We appreciate you! pic.twitter.com/PP8by8Fk5u— Jason DeRusha (@DeRushaJ) December 1, 2019
I have deleted a tweet from this weekend which I thought was benign and amusing but some felt was judgmental and mean-spirited and virtue-signaling and that’s not what I intended, so it’s gone. Appreciate the feedback!— Jason DeRusha (@DeRushaJ) November 12, 2019

I love doing the morning news every day, but it was special today bringing the @umnchildrens hospital news direct into every patient’s room. Note the hockey sticks on the ceiling: we were live in the @jason_zucker16 / @carly.zucker Brodcast studio -a result of their #Give16 campaign! 📸: @sam_derusha
