Advisory Board Vice Chair Michael Radutzky named to new executive position at CBS News
The vice chair of the School of Communications Advisory Board, senior producer Michael Radutzky of "60 Minutes," has been named to an additional executive role at CBS News.
Radutzky, a 12-time Emmy winner who has been producing segments on "60 Minutes" since 1995, will assume the role of executive producer of creative development, while still retaining his current position as senior producer. His new position will be part of a CBS News unit that's "dedicated to finding innovative ways to create and distribute CBS News content," according to a release.
“Michael is an extraordinary reporter and producer. So many of his stories during his years at '60 Minutes' stand out as some of our very best,” said Jeff Fager, CBS News chairman and '60 Minutes' executive producer. “In his new position, the rest of CBS News will benefit from his talents and abilities.”
Radutzky has been a senior producer on '60 Minutes' since 2006 and has been a part of investigations into allegations that cyclist Lance Armstrong and many of his teammates were using performance enhancing drugs, into the Duke rape case (which resulted in Peabody, Murrow and Emmy awards) and into the abuse of the U.S. military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in 1999.
Radutzky was born in New York City in 1956. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison with a bachelor’s degree in American history in 1978. He lives in Summit, N.J., with his wife, Katherine, and three children. He joined the School of Communications national advisory board, which is chaired by "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams, two years ago.
