Randy Clausen – Sports Director

Born in Minneapolis, but raised in Southwest Minnesota living in both Redwood Falls and Belview.  

After graduating from Belview (yes Belview had their own school back then) I attended Broadcasting School at Brown Institute in Minneapolis.  After Graduating, I worked part time here at KLGR before getting by feet wet with my first real broadcasting job at KHOL in Beulah, ND,

I first started working afternoons, and every other weekend.  I began their Sports programming with play by play of the Beulah Miners, and the Hazen Bison.  I then moved into Sales, and after 4 ½ years I moved back to Minnesota working at KDMA and KMGM in Montevideo.

I worked full and part time there for 10 years until I got the chance to move back home to become the Sports Director here at KLGR AM and 97.7 JACK FM in September, 1999.

My days are spent as host of the HOMEGROWN Morning Show from 7:00am to 10am Monday thru Friday on KLGR 1490 AM.  The rest of the day includes writing, producing, and recording commercials, and reporting on all the world of Sports.  From the local High Schools through the Pros we cover it all.  Most nights from mid August, through mid June, are spent in a Gym or out on a field.  I announce Football and Volleyball in the Fall.  Boys and Girls Basketball in the Winter, and Girls Fastpitch Softball and Baseball in the Spring.  

Since I’ve been at KLGR I’ve been fortunate enough to cover State Championships in Football, Volleyball, Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball, Girls Fastpitch Softball and Baseball.  My personal Grand Slam.

My free time I enjoy spending time with my Family, and Friends, Fishing, and little Golf(badly) and supporting all the Minnesota Sports teams, most of all My Vikings, as most know I bleed PURPLE!!!!
