I have almost a quarter century of broadcasting experience, spending most of his 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, 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 a reporter and photographer with KFYR-TV. In 1999 I added the job of morning weatherman to my list of duties.

During my career I have won over 25 broadcast television awards for sports reporting, news reporting, feature and documentary reporting, news and sports photography.

A large portion of my job is feature reporting. I love traveling across the state finding unique and interesting stories in rural North Dakota for my weekly "Off The Beaten Path" series which airs every Friday on the Evening and Night Reports. I have also found doing morning weather a challenge and I take pride in being the first person in our region to let people know what weather they'll wake up to; especially when it can alert them and prepare them for severe weather.

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 over 20 thousand copies and featured many of the places I have visited as part of my "Off The Beaten Path" television series.

Monica and I have three children, Meghanne, C.J. and Hannah.
