Nancy Cassutt has been elected to the ThreeSixty Advisory Board. Cassutt is executive director, MPR News and programming, and has held several roles during her seven-year tenure at Minnesota Public Radio | American Public Media.
“I’m honored to join the board and all the talented people who work really hard to help make ThreeSixty a thriving, necessary program,” Cassutt said. “I look forward to getting to work.”
Recently, Cassutt has been a leader in MPR and ThreeSixty’s efforts to establish a radio broadcast camp for advanced ThreeSixty students. The camp will debut this summer and is in memory of longtime MPR News employee and champion of ThreeSixty Toni Randolph, who passed away in July 2016.
“We look forward to continuing our work with Nancy and MPR,” said ThreeSixty executive director Chad Caruthers. “Our partnership is strong and plays an important role in offering our students unique and relevant opportunities in media.”
Cassutt joined MPR after a decade at Internet Broadcasting. She began her career as a reporter at WDIO-TV in Duluth. After working at several Midwest stations, Cassutt ultimately landed in news management, including leading the WCCO-TV news team.
