Newscaster, teacher, and public relations consultant, Marcia Fluer was one of the first woman television anchors in the Twin Cities.

She spent seven years teaching gifted and talented students in high schools and colleges before joining KSTP TV Minneapolis/Saint Paul in 1972, first as an entertainment reporter, then as a political correspondent, general assignment reporter, and weekend anchor. She moved to WCCO TV Minneapolis/Saint Paul in 1984, where, in addition to her reporter, producer, and anchor duties, she co-hosted the highly regarded daily half-hour talk and information program “Newsday.” She was also honored for her coverage of the 1976 and 1980 political campaigns. In 1989 she put her media experience and knowledge of crisis communications to work as Director of University Relations at the University of Minnesota, for ten years heading the school’s news service, publications, marketing, events, new media, and broadcasting. Today she is a consultant for the public relations firm Roberts and More. She has won many awards for her work in broadcasting and education and for her service to the community, and is a past president of the Minnesota Medical Foundation’s Women’s Health Fund.
