KNWC/Sioux Falls (Life 96.5) PD Dave Ryerson has announced he will be leaving the station at the end of July. After twenty years he is leaving radio and starting a new career as a pastor starting in August.
Dave told HisAir.Net today, “Once I got into Christian radio for Northwestern Media’s former station WSMR (Sarasota, FL) I started school to eventually work my way to getting my M.Div. I fulfilled that in April of 2016, and was ordained last Friday June 17th. I have accepted a call to Pastor Hope Free Lutheran in Ishpeming, Mi. I loved my twenty years in radio, and especially my eleven years with Northwestern Media, but God has been preparing me for this day for a long time now, and I’m finally (though tearfully) answering His call.”
Dave has been with KNWC for 8 years and previously was with WSMR/Sarasota. Sr. VP for Media at University of Northwestern Jason Sharp says the search for his replacement will begin soon.
