DAN BONNEMA, Sales Manager
KISD, Sioux Falls was Dan’s first full time job in broadcasting, in 1970, as an announcer.

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.
