12/18 Radio Theatre: in which all is revealed ....

Brian Matuszak (seated) refused yet another interview, so Cathy Podeszwa (right, in Santa hat, spilled all the beans

Brian Matuszak may still be found lurking around Northland back stages ... but he's not waiting for his cue any longer. 

After a few decades on stages throughout the Twin Ports, and after starting not just one but two theatre companies, Matuszak says he's done with the acting thing.

The shy, retiring (that's what he says, anyway) and reclusive actor/director/writer has refused interviews on Northland Morning for a number of years, so we turned to actor/investigative reporter Cathy Podeszwa for the scoop.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
