MEET CATHY

Cathy Wurzer is the long-time host of Minnesota Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” program and MPR’s “Minnesota Now.” Since 1994, she has been the co-host of “Almanac,” a weekly public affairs program produced by Twin Cities Public Television for Minnesota’s statewide public television network. Wurzer’s work on “Almanac” has earned her four Emmy Awards. Wurzer was also a reporter/anchor at the Minneapolis CBS affiliate WCCO Radio and TV. In addition, she is a member of the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame. In 2015, Wurzer began a series of on-air conversations on MPR News with a man dying of ALS that led to an Edward R. Murrow Award and work on behalf of the ALS Association. Ultimately, that series resulted in Wurzer founding the End in Mind Project, a non-profit dedicated to conversations around loss, grief, death and dying. Wurzer’s special interest in medical research and health journalism led her to moderating Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine’s annual conference and podcast. In addition to her work in journalism, Wurzer is a documentary filmmaker, author, artist, and horsewoman.
