Ryan Sjoberg is from Sioux Falls, South Dakota and started at KEYC 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 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.
"The biggest issue we have is the social distancing components and being compliant with those as we know them now. Because of the large group setting we are in, we are not confident that we would be able to hold an event where we can control all of those elements."
"To see that amount of empathy from someone so young, to be able to see that and be able to see beyond just how it affects him to look around and be that aware of his surroundings. Then the empathy and generosity, the selflessness of it. It took us back."
