I’ve been a part of the Sioux Falls media for nearly 30 years. I grew up in Southern California, and graduated from California State University, Fullerton, with a BA in Communications in 1986. I got my start in television later that year at KNAZ-TV in Flagstaff, Arizona. I moved to Sioux Falls in 1989 to become Sports Director at KSFY-TV, a position I held for more than eight years. During that time I was named ‘Sportscaster of the Year’ by the South Dakota Associated Press. My radio career began in January 2000. I live in Sioux Falls with my wife, Vicki. I have two daughters, Ashley and Alison, and one Grandson, Link.
