Cathy Wurzer

Cathy Wurzer is one of Minnesota’s most recognizable broadcast journalists who has spent her career behind a microphone and in front of television cameras with time carved out to write books and produce documentaries. A multiple Emmy Award winning journalist, Wurzer is the co-host of “Almanac” on Twin Cities Public Television. On weekdays, she is the host of Minnesota Public Radio’s Morning Edition. Wurzer’s most recent book, We Know How This Ends: Living Well While Dying, was co-written with Dr. Bruce Kramer, an educator and musician who recognized that living a meaningful life with ALS meant embracing his imminent death. Wurzer’s work with Dr. Kramer sparked a statewide effort dedicated to living and dying well called “End in Mind.”
