The community is invited to East Central Regional Library’s 60th anniversary celebration on Thursday, Oct. 10, beginning with a special visit by television personality Boyd Huppert at 6:30 p.m. and concluding with an open house reception at the Cambridge Public Library.
Huppert got his start in broadcasting as a 16-year-old announcer at his hometown radio station in River Falls, Wisconsin. He majored in journalism and political science at UW-River Falls and began his television career in 1984 in Wausau, Wisconsin. Boyd worked at two more TV stations before joining KARE 11 in 1996.
Today, Huppert produces and hosts KARE 11’s weekly “Land of 10,000 Stories” segment. His writing and reporting have been recognized with 16 National Edward R. Murrow Awards. He was also entered into the Emmy Silver Circle for career contributions to the television industry.
Following his visit, people are encouraged to stay for an open house event until 8 p.m. All ages are welcome for the entire evening, and no registration is necessary. Don’t forget to bring and have stamped your 60th Anniversary Passbook.
This program is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
