Born in Nebraska to two members of the United States Air Force, John Salling has already been blessed with many opportunities to see the world in his life. He attended Bishop Ryan High School in Minot, and is now attending the University of Mary where he is in his third year as a Mass Communications major. Even though he was not born in North Dakota he nevertheless calls himself a North Dakotan. He has grown to love this state and sees it as home. He respects the kind and caring people, loves the plains, and says the winters are "growing on me."
John loves meeting new people and learning their stories. He is an Eagle Scout and endeavors to live those values and lessons in every aspect of his life. He is still building experience and is ever grateful for the opportunity given to him by KFYR-TV. He is glad to get involved in the Bismarck community by reporting, and enjoys discovering this city.
When not at work or in school, John fills his free time with books, board games, or catching movies with friends.
