Todd has been with KFYR 550 since 1997...the year of the famous 17-inch snowstorm with 70MPH+ wind gusts! He sent a blank audition tape, and got the job anyway (true story; the guy who hired him, however, is no longer with the company).
He was then promoted to the Operations Manager position with what was then called Clear Channel Radio - now known as iHeartMedia - in Bismarck ("more proof that everyone rises to their level of incompetence...and some get promoted beyond THAT!"). And now, believe it or not...he's the "Senior VP of Programming" for iHeartMedia in Bismarck-Mandan! It boggles the mind....Todd started working in radio in the '80s. Rochester, MN, Outer Banks, NC, Winchester, VA, back to Outer Banks, NC, to Columbus, OH, then Bismarck-Mandan.
His early experience was working for Rob Sherwood, the guy he grew up listening to in the Twin Cities (folks from there might remember WDGY, 63 KDWB, U-100, and/or 15 KSTP). Todd went to college for 5-and-a-half years, and got no degree; he finally was able to break his addiction to scholastics.
Was an Ohio State Buckeye, so naturally hates the Michigan Wolverines ("Ann Arbor is such a GIRL'S name!"). Also attended Pacific Lutheran University (Go Lutes!) and University of Wisconsin-Stout (Go...what were they again??). And there was Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis; not a MILITARY academy.
THAT might have done him some GOOD! Write him anytime ([email protected]), and join him in the KFYR Kafé, on What's On Your Mind, Saturday Night At The Oldies, and whatever else!
