Submit your birthday spotlight!

NewsCenter Today wants to help celebrate your birthday!  Each weekday morning Jess Abrahamson and Byron Tollefson will announce up to six viewer birthdays on the air during BIRTHDAY SPOTLIGHT at 6:20 a.m.   It’s a first-come, first-served basis … so the sooner you get that photo to us, the better your chances of making it on Birthday Spotlight.

Best yet, at the end of the week, one lucky birthday person will be chosen to win a Victoria’s Ristorante & Wine Bar $50 gift card from KTTC!

If you’d like to see your announcement on the air, send an email a minimum of 48 hours in advance to along with a picture of the birthday person.  You can mail the information to the station too (Birthday Spotlight, 6301 Bandel Road NW, Rochester, MN  55901), but be sure to send it early as it will take longer to receive the information in the mail.  Unfortunately, we don’t announce ‘belated’ birthdays.  A Saturday birthday will be announced on Fridays and a Sunday birthday will be announced on Mondays.

Please include in your email:

  • The recipients name along with pronunciation
  • The date of the Birthday (Sorry, we don’t accept belated Birthdays)
  • How old the person will be
  • A good quality picture (Make sure we can see the person’s face.) Submissions with a photo will be given preference over those without a photo.
  • City
  • Fun facts or interesting information about the birthday person
  • Address of birthday person (in case they win the Pasquale’s gift card!)
  • e-mail
  • Phone number (contact information is in case we need to clarify something…it will never be passed on without your permission.)
  • Tell us how you know the birthday person

Then watch NewsCenter Today to see your birthday wish announced LIVE on-the-air.  Announcements will also be available for viewing at on the Birthday Spotlight page.
