BringMeTheNews hires KFAN's Joe Nelson as new sports director


BringMeTheNews is proud to announce that we've brought Joe Nelson on staff full time as Broadcast Network Manager, as well as Sports Director. It's a coup for BringMeTheNews – we couldn't be happier to have him!

Joe is a true-blue Minnesotan, born and raised in Grove City, Minnesota, and a graduate of Southwest Minnesota State University.

And he's an experienced sports radio broadcaster who most recently has been working two jobs – as a sports producer for BringMeTheNews and as the producer of Paul Allen's "Nine to Noon" show on FM 100.3 KFAN.

As a nice farewell, KFAN featured a couple of tributes – give 'em a listen below. Welcome, Joe!

– Some really nice words from Paul Allen, who worked with Joe for five years, and who calls Joe one of the hardest-working guys in the business. KFAN host Paul Charchian adds that Joe is never in a bad mood – so true! (starts about 14:25):

– KFAN's Joe Nelson montage (starts at about 39:20):
