I'm a 1996 graduate of St. Cloud State University and have been with WJON for 24 years as a news reporter and anchor. While the news is my business, sports are my love. I am a big fan of the Vikings, Twins, Gopher's basketball, the Wolves, and Wild. My favorite pastimes include snowmobiling, golfing, and movies.
