I have almost a quarter century of broadcasting experience, spending most of his career in Western North Dakota and Eastern Montana.

I have more than 40 years of broadcasting experience, spending most of my career in Western North Dakota and Eastern Montana.

My first television job was in Glendive, Montana, as weatherman and sports anchor at KXGN-TV. From there I moved to Williston, North Dakota, where I was the news director at KUMV-TV from 1979-1982. I then moved out of state to become the chief photographer and sports director at KMVT-TV in Twin Falls, Idaho. I worked in Idaho from 1982 to 1988 then returned to North Dakota where I now am the Assistant News Director, as well as a reporter and photographer with KFYR-TV.

During my career I have won more than 25 broadcast television awards for sports reporting, news reporting, feature and documentary reporting, news and sports photography.
A large portion of my job is training reporters on how to be good storytellers. I daily mentor our staff on the finer points of reporting and photography.

I also love traveling across the state to find unique and interesting stories in rural North Dakota for my "Off The Beaten Path" series.

I am married to KFYR-TV anchor Monica Hannan. Together we have authored two books, "Dakota Day Trips, Discovering North Dakota's Hidden Treasures", and "More Dakota Day Trips". The books have sold more than 20 thousand copies and feature many of the places I have visited as part of "Off The Beaten Path."

Monica and I have three children, Meghanne, Cliff Junior, and Hannah.
