Home grown in Northern California just east of San Francisco, I grew up spoiled with the best weather on the planet. For 17 years I never knew how good I had it until I moved to Maryland for school and experienced the brutal East Coast humidity. Now I’ll get my taste of that Midwest winter that everyone is always talking about.

Journalism was not my first path in life. I thought I would be working in politics. After graduating college I worked for a polling firm in Seattle and then on a Congressional campaign in my home district in California. But after helping my candidate earn a victory I thought about another career path. Broadcast Journalism. So I went out and got an internship at the local sports radio station and then applied to journalism school. I was lucky enough to be accepted at my alma mater, the University of Maryland, where I had received my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science four years earlier. At Maryland I was a part of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism, where I went from not knowing how to use a camera to producing award-winning packages for our news program, Capital News Service.

I never expected to end up in Bismarck for my first job in journalism, but I’m excited to be here. I can’t wait to start producing quality journalism and talking about the great stories this area has to offer. Shoot me an email at bo.evans@kfyrtv.com if you have a story idea or just want to say hi. I look forward to getting to know this community and being able to call it one of the many places that I call home across the country.
