DAN BONNEMA, Sales Manager
KISD, Sioux Falls was Dan’s first full time job in broadcasting, in 1970, as an announcer. After a two year vacation, provided by his Uncle, Sam, Dan started announcing at KQAD radio in Luverne, Minnesota in 1973. He wandered into KVDB Radio in Sioux Center in February of 1975 as an announcer and radio sales exec. “Bonno” still puts those announcing skills to work with remotes and filling in on Swap Shop. Both he and the stations have changed a lot, but Dan still really enjoys helping businesses expand their horizons with great local advertising on Sioux County Radio stations. Dan and his wife, Carol, live in Lake Park, IA.
