I’m proud to say that my entire broadcasting career has been in the great state of South Dakota. I attended Augustana College and pursued a radio profession at the age of 18, I have been involved in about every format. From AM news, to rock, to country, I have enjoyed several years in morning drive. I have a wonderful family: my wife, Heather, and our 3 children, Isaac, Noah, and Elliana, live, work, and attend school in Sioux Falls. I consider it an honor to be a part of a great team on a great station that wakes you up every morning with the latest news, weather, traffic information, country music news, and a few laughs along the way. Thanks for tuning in and please drop me a line to ask me anything or if I can answer any questions or concerns you might have. A huge thanks from “that Big Breakfast guy in the morning”… Dan Collins
