Eric Strouse

CTN Coon Rapids
Station Manager
Coon Rapids, MN
Eric Strouse has been with CTN Studios (City of Coon Rapids) since 1994. Most of his 23 plus years at CTN have been supervising and managing the small but very successful cable station known for local sports/event coverage as well as community news and special feature programming. CTN Studios has been honored with multiple awards over the years, including Midwest Emmy, ACM Hometown, and NATOA Government Programming Awards.
While maintaining the award-winning community station programming, Eric launched a production services program that has grown quickly. In fact, current project gross income exceeds cable PEG funding for the station. Much of this success came from his foresight to invest in HD technology in 2010, five years before having an HD community channel.
Eric’s background includes five years of producing and directing sports and events at the local origination station for the cable operator in the Twin Cities. He also freelanced as an EVS replay operator for college hockey, NHL, and NBA games for Fox Sports over the years. In addition, Eric worked as a master control operator for KVPT, the PBS affiliate in Fresno, CA. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in telecommunications from Penn State University.
