Podcast | September 14, 2018

Welcome to the third episode of Catalyze, a podcast from the Morehead-Cain Foundation at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill!

Becca Frucht ’05 discovered her passion for the entertainment industry—specifically the intersection between pop culture, politics and social awareness—as a college intern in MTV’s London office. After UNC, her career ranged from advertising to sustainability to pop culture writing and on-camera reporting.

While working for MTV Act and Rock The Vote, Becca covered the Democratic National Convention and interviewed artists at Lollapalooza. With media outlet PopSugar, Becca co-hosted live coverage of the Grammys and SAG Awards. Then, she gave up her glamorous and thriving Hollywood lifestyle to live and work on an isolated ranch in Colorado.
