My father’s first nickname as a child was Boomer, after the ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman, for my ability to relay information quickly and accurately for someone so young. My first taste of broadcasting came as a member of the morning announcements at Franklin High School in Baltimore County, MD. After enrolling in the University of Maryland thinking I was going to be a doctor, and quickly realizing I couldn't do math or science, I remembered my passion for broadcasting.

My father’s first nickname for me as a child was Boomer, after the ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman... after the ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman, for my ability to relay information quickly and accurately for someone so young. My first taste of broadcasting came as a member of the morning announcements at Franklin High School in Baltimore County, MD. After enrolling in the University of Maryland thinking I was going to be a doctor, and quickly realizing I couldn't do math or science, I remembered my passion for broadcasting.

While attending the Philip Merrill College of Journalism I held internships which spanned across the broadcast news spectrum. I covered political news during an internship at NBC NewsChannel and international news for CCTV-America. At WBAL-AM, I had the opportunity to gather sound and otherwise assist on-air talent at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, getting paid in free baseball and dreams. I also covered sports as an intern for NBC Washington and Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic. Finally, I freelanced with the Big Ten Network, holding both on-air and off-air positions.

I have a younger brother who is currently training to become a member of the Navy’s construction battalion, the Seabees. During my spare time, I like reading the Game of Thrones series and taking stupidly long walks through the Spanish countryside, though I've heard the hiking in North Dakota is just as beautiful. I consider Budapest to be the most beautiful city in the world and I'm a die-hard fan of all Baltimore sports teams.

I joined the station in January 2015, as the education reporter and I'm looking forward to all that Bismarck has to offer. I'm already enjoying the lack of traffic compared to the East Coast! If you have a story dealing with education you think needs to be told, feel free to send me an email, or to call my work number at (701) 255-8178. You can also talk to me about just about anything you'd like on twitter through my handle, @MaxGrossfeld.
