Hi, I’m Barry Hein. I grew up in De Smet, SD. Sports has always been a part of my life as a player, spectator & broadcaster. I went to SDSU for my freshman year of college. I was on the football team (redshirted) but transferred to Black Hills State University and got my degree in broadcasting in May of 2001. Then, I found a job in radio in St. Cloud, MN. After 5 years there I went to Grand Forks, ND to work for the same company for 3 more years. I came back to South Dakota and worked in Watertown for 2 years. Following that I came back to St. Cloud where I’ve been since 2012. I am excited to reach out to the Brookings community with sport broadcast and news!
