Tour Hosted by Travis Fossing Sports Director

Travis grew up in Windom, Minnesota, and loved sports at an early age. He began his television career in 1998, as an Intern at KELO-TV. In May, 2000, he became the Weekend Sports Anchor, and five months later was named Sports Director. He anchored the 6:00 and 10:00 sportscasts until 2007, winning Associated Press Sportscast of the Year in 2003, 2005, and 2006. In 2007, he left broadcasting, only to reappear a year later at KDOM Radio in Windom, Minnesota. After more than five years as a salesman and broadcaster, his family decided to make the move back to the Sioux Falls area, and he was lucky enough to resume his role as Sports Director at KELO-TV.

Every day is a new adventure in the world of sports, and it’s his pleasure to bring you the stories and highlights.

When he's not working, Travis enjoys spending time with his wife and son. They also enjoy camping, attending sporting events, and spending time with their extended family.

Join Travis and KELOLAND viewers on this fabulous trip of a lifetime.
