ST. PAUL, Minn. — The president and CEO of the parent company of Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media plans to step down.

The chairwoman of the board says McTaggart sent a letter to employees saying they’re “deeply saddened by the pain felt by individuals within our organization.”
McTaggart joined the company in 1983 and began as CEO in 2011.
