New Podcast Dedicated to Finding Jodi Huisentruit Launches in June
As the 25th anniversary of the disappearance of Jodi Huisentruit approaches, the team behind finding Jodi is turning to a new medium to spread the word and chase new leads.
FindJodi.com announced on May 26th that the FindJodi podcast will be launching on June 5th, which would have been Jodi's 52nd birthday.
Episodes of the FindJodi podcast will feature team members sharing information and discussing Jodi’s disappearance in a format which promises to be compelling for both new and knowledgable followers of the case.
The goal of this new podcast is to introduce as many people as possible to Jodi’s case through the podcasting medium which has been picking up steam in previous years. They are hoping this will reach the right ears and create leads that can help solve this 25-year-long case.
Jodi Huisentruit is originally from Long Prairie, Minnesota, and a graduate of St. Cloud State University where she majored in mass communications. She was working in Mason City Iowa as a news anchor at the time of her disappearance.
At about 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 27, 1995, KIMT producer Amy Kuns noticed that Huisentruit had failed to report to work as scheduled, so she called Huisentruit's apartment. When Huisentruit answered the telephone, she explained that she had overslept and that she was preparing to leave for the station. However, by 6:00 am she had still not arrived. The police were notified around 7 am, and they reported to Jodi's apartment complex where they found her belongings scattered around her car and evidence that suggested a struggle.
FindJodi.com was developed in 2003 when former Television News Director Gary Peterson and News Anchor Josh Benson worked together and discovered they had similar interests in missing persons cases. The network of team members work across the country chasing down leads in hopes of finding out what happened to Jodi.
The new FindJodi podcast will be available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts June 5th.
