DUSTY DEINES – SPORTS DIRECTOR/PLAY BY PLAY
Dusty was born in WaKeeney, KS and raised on a farm south of town. He quickly realized that farming wasn’t his thing and developed a love for sports. He decided when he was in 7th grade that he wanted to do play-by-play broadcasting and the rest is history. After receiving a degree from Colby Community College in May of 2003, he began working at KD Country 94 and Z 96.3 The Lake in Glen Elder, Kansas in July 2003. When he’s not traveling all over the state covering high school sports, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, being involved in efforts to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association, helping with church activities and of course making as many trips as possible to Manhattan, Kansas to support K-State athletics.
MIKE SCHRANT – SIDELINE REPORTER
Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels.
Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the “good old boys”.
