WDAY News @ 5 Co-Anchor/Producer

Broadcasting has been in my blood for as long as I can remember. From my younger years when I would "broadcast" pretend radio programs into my sisters playroom, to my first job at an actual radio station, KZZJ-AM in Rugby, when I was 15, to my present day position as WDAY 6 News 5 o'clock Producer and Co-Anchor. In between the early years and now, I've worn many hats in the broadcasting business. I was a morning radio disc jockey at Magic 105 in Minot during college at Minot State University. My first break into the television business came at KMOT-TV in Minot where I was the main weather

anchor. But, after a couple of years I moved into a part of the business I'd always wanted to be a part of...news. That took me to KXMC-TV in Minot where I was the 6 and 10 news producer and 10 o'clock co-anchor. Now, WDAY and

Fargo are home and I couldn't be happier to be a part of this news team and this growing community.
