School: Marquette University
Hometown: Fairmont, Minnesota

Grant joined KTVO after earning his B.A. in journalism and a minor in digital media from Marquette University in Milwaukee.

Grant took advantage of opportunities in student media at Marquette by working as the Sports Director at MUTV and as the Assistant Sports Editor at the Marquette Wire. In addition to student media work he worked on two documentary projects and interned in the sports departments at WISN 12 in Milwaukee and KEYC-TV in Mankato, Minnesota.

Having grown up on a farm in rural Minnesota, Grant feels right at home in the Kirksville/Ottumwa area. In high school he played soccer, hockey and tennis but also enjoys a game of pick up basketball and a round of golf as well. Grant is a lifelong fan of Minnesota's sports teams and, against his better judgement, continues to believe the Vikings will eventually win a Super Bowl.

He is excited to be a part of the team at KTVO. Feel free to say hi or send a tweet his way!
