John Salling

Hey everybody, I’m John Salling.

I grew up in a military family, but I spent most of my life right here in North Dakota. I couldn’t be happier to be back in Minot and close to home.

I attended Bishop Ryan High School in town (Go Lions!), and then on to the University of Mary in Bismarck. I graduated with a degree in Mass Communications after discovering a passion for entertaining people and making them laugh. I performing in a few college plays and hosted a monthly talent night on campus.

I started work at KFYR while still attending school and after graduation. I’ve covered local government, the oil industry, homelessness, and the lives of my fellow North Dakotans. With a few years under my belt I transferred north to KMOT Minot to continue working in this great state.

When not reporting I can be found reading and spending time with friends.
