News Director: I’m a lifelong resident of this great state of Minnesota. I grew-up in the small West Central Community of Maynard. After graduating from the Brown Institute of Radio Broadcasting, I began my professional career working nights at KDMA radio in Montevideo back in 1988. In 1995, I moved to Redwood Falls and worked as the sports director for KLGR radio. I eventually became their morning show co-host and program director. I’ve been working here at WJON in St. Cloud since 2005, and have been the news director since 2007. The main beats that I cover include: politics, education, and local government. I'm also the early morning news anchor on WJON, and I host the News @ Noon show weekdays on WJON. People often ask me, “What’s the best part of my job?” The answer is that I get to meet a lot of great people, see a lot of cool places, and I never know from one day to the next what my day is going to bring.
