~Dean Rivers~ Announcer
I graduated from Mound Westonka high school in the western suburbs of the Twin Cities back in 2001 where I played football, baseball, and was a sprinter in track. I have a passion for most all sports, and is a big reason why I decided to go back to college at the ripe age of 30, and got my degree in radio broadcasting from Brown College in February 2016! I worked in the maintenance field for most of my working life until I started here at KDJS in October of 2015. I have a little boy who I love building forts, Lego’s, snow forts, play-do, you name it with. I am truly a big kid at heart. When I have free time I like to go bowling and sing karaoke. I enjoy music from Bing Crosby, Big Frank, Dean Martin and the rest of the rat pack. When it comes to country Allan Jackson tops the list. My favorite sports teams are the Twins/Vikes and the Mets/Jets. I love the simple things in life. I believe that when you can recognize them. They can be the greatest joys you’ll have.
