NEWS PRODUCER (PRIMARY) - KSFY/KDLT
Sioux Falls is one of the fastest growing cities in the Upper Midwest and is home to more than 195,000 people. Healthcare and finance make up much of the workforce in Sioux Falls. There is never a shortage of things to do here. Summers are packed with outdoor festivals and concert events. Many also enjoy the city's nearly 30 miles of bike trails; be sure to stop by the beautiful waterfalls of the Big Sioux River! And winter doesn't mean people hibernate; there are plenty outdoor and indoor activities all winter long. In 2014, the city built a 12,000 seat area that has hosted everything from PBR events, hockey and indoor football, to concerts with names like Paul McCartney, Carrie Underwood and Elton John. The city is also home to a new indoor aquatic center, indoor ice skating facility, basketball arena, and an indoor tennis complex. There is no shortage of places to eat either. Not only is Sioux Falls home to many familiar restaurant chains, it's known for many great locally-owned restaurants. And if you want to get away for the weekend, you can drive to Omaha in three hours, Minneapolis in four and the Black Hills in five.
