Ryan Sjoberg is from Sioux Falls, South Dakota and started at KEYC News 12 in December of 2017 before graduating from Minnesota State University-Mankato with a degree in Mass Media and Communication Studies. His whole life he has been passionate about sports and interacting with people so this job is perfect for him. As a kid, he played basketball, baseball, and golf. He has always seen TV as a possibility, but not really a reality until he interned at KEYC News 12 over the course of the summer of 2017.
Ryan looks forward to serving the people of Southern Minnesota and Northern Iowa for the foreseeable future and can’t wait to meet and interact with all the different people he may not have otherwise had the opportunity to meet in Mankato and the surrounding communities.
