Erin O'Brien was crowned the new Miss Coon Rapids at the annual pageant on January 27 at Coon Rapids High School. She grew up in Ohio and has spent the last few years working as a television reporter in Wisconsin. Just six months ago, O'Brien moved to Rochester, Minnesota for an anchor job. She says she's excited to represent Coon Rapids and share her love of news with young people."My platform is called "Read All About It - Youth News Literacy" so it's all about teaching young people not only the importance of consuming the news but how to consume the news and how to avoid fake news."This is her first win in Minnesota but O'Brien does have pageant experience in other states. She now goes on to represent Coon Rapids at the Miss Minnesota pageant in June.
