I'm a 1996 graduate of St. Cloud State University, and have been with WJON for over 19 years as a news reporter and anchor. I am also the co-host of a sports talk show called Granite City Sports on AM 1390 KXSS. While news is my business, sports are my love. I am a big fan of the Vikings, Twins, Gopher's basketball, the Wolves, Wild and St. Cloud State Hockey. My favorite pastimes include snowmobiling, golfing and sand volleyball.
