For more than 30 years, Cyndy Brucato has been delivering the news with honesty, insight, and passion, earning her a spot as one of Minnesota’s most prominent anchors.
After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Journalism degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Cyndy began her television career at the Hubbard owned and operated WDIO TV in Duluth. From there, she transitioned to the Minneapolis/St. Paul market as a reporter at WCCO TV. After a stint in Chicago at WBBM TV, Cyndy moved back to Minnesota, and in 1979 she began her tenure at KSTP TV, co-anchoring alongside Ron Magers as the Twin Cities’ top-rated news team. In 1981, Stan Turner became Cyndy’s new co-anchor, creating a team lasting most of the next five years. She moved to KARE TV for a brief period, hosting the news segment, “Cyndy’s Notebook.” In the years to follow, she left television to pursue other interests, but in 2004, she returned to KSTP TV as an anchor once again. Throughout her remarkable career, Cyndy has earned both a Peabody Award and a national Emmy for her work. Her sincerity and professionalism make Cyndy a true role-model for every broadcaster in the industry.
