As the Sports Director for KRFO, I enjoy the chance to cover sports throughout the year for Owatonna, Blooming Prairie, Medford, NRHEG and Triton. I feature coaches from each school on the Saturday coaches show at 9AM during the school year. During the summer I look forward to the Steele County Fair for the great food and music. I'm on air each afternoon on AM 1390 with a mix of music, news and local information. Come back to the website often for local, regional and national stories of interest. In my spare time I go to high school sporting events, go for a run or watch a movie. My wife Chris and I have two grown children. Cynthia is graduate of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and Aaron attends the University of MN.
