Taylor Aasen is a North Dakota native. She grew up in Mohall, North Dakota, and graduated from Mohall Lansford Sherwood High School in 2016. She took a few years off of higher education, but would eventually attend Bismarck State College to pursue her dreams of following in her mother’s footsteps.
Taylor’s mother, Debbie Kuehn (Aasen), was a reporter and anchor for KX News in Minot for about 25 years before she retired. Taylor’s mom died of Parkinson’s Disease in 2015, when Taylor was a Junior in high school. This led Taylor to take those years off of school, but she would finally decide that journalism and broadcasting was her path in life, just like her mother’s.
While she was attending school at Bismarck State College, Taylor landed a job at KX News in Bismarck as a camera and computer graphics operator during the Fall of 2021. She later moved her way up the ladder at KX and become a weekend weather anchor and news reporter in February 2022. After two years of full-time school and full-time work, Taylor graduated from BSC in May of 2023 with an associate degree in mass communications and now works at KX as a full-time weather reporter.
Taylor enjoys shopping, spending time with her two cats, and camping in her free time. She also loves traveling back home to see her friends and family in Mohall. She loves the people, nature, and weather of North Dakota. She hopes to continue her mother’s legacy at KX News and works hard to bring the news and weather to the North Dakota community.
