Local News Close-Up: Twin Cities Stations Play Fair

The Minnesota State Fair has wound down, but the 2022 affair made quite a mark. The Great Minnesota Get-Together goes for 12 days, ending on Sept. 5, and a stunning 1.84 million people turned up for it — 540,000 more than 2021. The Twin Cities TV stations were there too, setting up their news operations at the fair, as attendees grab a corn dog and take a seat in the bleachers to watch.
