Jeff Harkness

 

I’ve been a part of the Sioux Falls media for nearly 25 years.

 

I grew up in Southern California, and graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a BA in Communications in 1986.  I got my start in television later that year at KNAZ-TV in Flagstaff, Arizona.

 

I moved to Sioux Falls in 1989 to become Sports Director at KSFY-TV, a position I held for more than eight years.  During that time I was named ‘Sportscaster of the Year’ by the South Dakota Associated Press.

 

My radio career began in January 2000.

 

I live in Sioux Falls with my wife, Vicki.  I have two daughters, Ashley and Alison, and one Grandson, Link.
