I've been in Fergus Falls with Lakes Radio since 2000, before that I've worked in The Fargo and Detroit Lakes markets. I'm originally from the East coast but have pretty much been accepted into the Sensible Midwestern Lifestyle. I am a functioning workaholic, and can usually be found at our studios, or helping engineers resolve some technical difficulty at 2am, or at a live action remote broadcast soaking up some local community flavor. Z103.3 fm is one of my favorite things about Lakes Radio, and I am a fan of all of the artists we play on "Minnesota's Custom Rock Station". I also play guitar in my spare (ha!) time.Co-hosting the Morning Talk Magazine with Mary Dolan helps me feed my news habit, and keep plugged in to the community.
I've been "lovin' the radio life" since 1982, when I answered an ad on the radio to apply for the position of radio copywriter! I started at the typewriter and eased my way behind the microphone! Every now and then, they'd take me from the typewriter (it was 1982, after all!) and have me record a line or two. It worked into more and more until I sat behind a board full of buttons and had to quickly learn the ropes of being an on air personality!
I've loved my years in radio and hope it lasts forever! Morning Talk Magazine is the perfect way for me to start each day. Greg Brady and I have a great time on the air together and hope we cause a few laughs for our listeners each day, too!
If you're a listener, you already know my favorite things; My 3 adorable Grandkids and Cabin life on Lake Lida! 3 little ones jumping off the dock and playing in the sand every summer is as good as it gets. If you can drag me off the dock, I like to play an occasional round of golf, too!
Nearly every day, I run into someone who says they enjoy our morning show...and that's enough to keep me coming back every day! Thanks for listening! Grab a cup of coffee and join us every Monday through Thursday morning at 9:10am on 1250 KBRF!
Dave Bishop was born and raised right here in Fergus Falls. Graduated from FFHS in the mid nineties. Got into radio when his former boss told him to jot some stuff down and head to the radio station and record a couple ads. Thought it was kinda fun thought it would be a cool part time job for a few months. (that was back in 1998) Dave has done just about every job on the on air side here at Lakes Radio, with the exception of sports play by play.
Hobbies Muskie fishing out on West Battle, Flying R/C Airplanes and Helicopters, hunting, Loves Video Games.
