Biographical Sketch

History:

  • Journalist at the Iowa General Assembly Senate in 1984. Julie Rutz was one of the chosen people from the Secretary of the Senate in charge of KRNT radio.
  • In 1984 Rutz was chosen to represent KRNT Radio in the Journal of the House of the General Assembly of the State of Iowa.
  • The most of Julie Rutz’s work (audiocassettes) was produced by KRNT Radio. KRNT Radio is a radio station broadcasting a sports format. In 1945, the station won a Peabody Award for its outstanding reporting of news. KRNT Radio serves as the broadcast outlet for several sports teams such as: Drake University athletics, Chicago Cubs baseball and Green Bay Packers football. Its studios are located in Des Moines.
  • Rutz’s videocassettes were produced by WOI – TV. On the 21st of February 1950, WOI – TV signed on air and it was the second largest television station and the first in Des Moines. The station was originally owned by Iowa State University in Ames along with its noncommercial WOI radio stations, making it the first commercial station owned by a major college.
