BOYD HUPPERT
During his 33 year career in television news, Boyd Huppert has become widely known for his work as a video storyteller and teacher. 

In his primary role, Boyd works as a reporter at KARE TV in Minneapolis, where he produces and hosts the station's weekly "Land of 10,000 Stories" segment.   Prior to his arrival at KARE in 1996, Boyd worked at WITI-TV in Milwaukee,  KETV in Omaha and WSAW-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin.

Boyd has also presented more than 150 visual storytelling workshops across the United States and in Canada, Norway, Denmark and New Zealand.   Boyd is a longtime faculty member at the Advanced Storytelling Workshop sponsored by the National Press Photographers Association and held each spring at Texas State University - San Marcos.

Boyd's work as a reporter has earned some of journalism's highest honors, including a national Emmy for feature reporting, the Scripps Howard Award, and multiple National Headliner, Sigma Delta Chi and Gabriel Awards.  In 2017 Boyd was recognized with the National Edward R. Murrow Award for news writing, his 15th National Murrow Award.  Boyd is a 2016 recipient of the Sprague Award, the highest honor bestowed by the National Press Photographers Association.  Also in 2016, Boyd was inducted into the Emmy Silver Circle, recognizing career contributions to the television industry.

Boyd grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and graduated with a journalism degree from UW-River Falls, where he was named the university's 2013 distinguished alumnus.

Boyd and his wife Sheri have two son, Sam and Matt, both out of the house and producing their own stories.

Every video has its own rhythm.
From the pattern of the concept to the flow of the writing
to the staging of the shots, to the timing of the edit -
the rhythm defines the piece.

 In Music City we will unite to discover
the rhythm of storytelling in the tempo of STN.
