Unfortunately, KARE 11 reporter Boyd Huppert has been diagnosed with rare cancer. Boyd, who is well-known for his storytelling, revealed that he has multiple myeloma.
During an interview with anchor Randy Shaver on Sunday night, October 31, 2021, he revealed that he has been diagnosed with uncommon blood cancer. He called it a “punch in the gut,” adding that: “You try to bargain a little bit, you try to think it’s not real, and then … for me, the acceptance came pretty quickly.”
He spoke with WCCO Radio’s Jordana Green on Monday, saying he learned he had cancer about one month ago. Green herself was diagnosed last year with leukemia, and she said she had responded well to the treatment.

Mike Bush KSDK wrote on Facebook: “If you believe in prayer, I would ask for your prayers for my friend Boyd Huppert. Boyd’s a reporter with our sister station KARE-11 in Minneapolis, and you’ve seen many of his stories on our station and on NBC Nightly News. In my opinion, he is quite simply the best reporter in local television. And he’s an even better guy. We were actually working on a story together when he was diagnosed. He’s got a long road ahead, but with our prayers, I know he’ll be telling great stories again soon.”
Erin Davisson, one of his friends, posted: “No one tells a story like KARE-11’s Boyd Huppert. Most everyone who wants to excel as a TV journalist knows his work, and of his rare ability to share stories of human kindness that inspire us. He is, quite simply, the best. I’m so lucky to also call this kind and generous man my friend, ever since our early days working as newbie reporters at WSAW-TV in the 80s. He’s going through a health crisis right now and could use our prayers. I’m positive that if all the love and kindness that’s he’s inspired in this world come back to him through prayers, he’s going to be healed and healthy in no time. Let’s shake Heaven with our prayers for Boyd.”
