Former KBJR and now current WCCO reporter Rachel Slavik is taking her national attention from the Colbert report in stride, as she was mocked for her segment about the recent cold weather snap.

Slavik definitely was thinking outside the box when she was  reporting recently about the Polar Vortex. Instead of the old boiling water trick, she used a board with a nail in it and a frozen banana.

Yes it sounds a little odd, but once you see it....genius..... and awfully funny. Out of all the reporters in the country she stood out, it still is national attention so just revel in it. Congrats Rachel, and thanks for putting our cold snap in Minnesota on the map!
