Read more about Jordan with his short biography below.
My name is Jordan Fremstad, I was born in Durango, Colorado. My parents moved to the small town of De Soto, Wisconsin in the late 1990s and it is a place I have called home ever since. I graduated from De Soto High School in 2013. In my high school days I participated in football for two seasons and baseball for four. I was involved in the school's music department since fifth grade. The instruments I played included the drums and my personal favorite, the piano. The piano was an instrument that was taught to me for 11 years by Viroqua's own Sue Walby. Music was a big part of my life growing up. However, I was not interested in making it a career. My passion in life is athletics. Despite not having the athletic capability to pursue a collegiate sport, I found an alternative to make sports a possible career. Another passion of mine is writing. Journalism was a subject that I thought was the best way to go about pursuing my dream. My interest landed me at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. I am currently a Journalism Major and a Radio-TV-Film minor. In my first two years at this institution I have participated at my campus TV station, newspaper, and radio station. At those various student media outlets I have held positions such as Titan TV's sports producer, the Advance-Titan's co-sports editor, and co-host on WRST's sports talk show The Sports Page. Titan-TV and WRST also cover live sporting events such as football, basketball, soccer and wrestling. Those events gave me the opportunity to call football and basketball games.
Participating in all of these things with campus media have given me some great entry level experience in all media outlets. A career in journalism that I plan to pursue includes one of my favorite things, and that is travel. Traveling is something I have always loved to do. My love for travel will push me towards North Dakota for the 2015-2016 school year. I will study at North Dakota State University in Fargo on National Student Exchange. This will give me the opportunity to expand my horizons and develop new relationships. My first two years at Oshkosh have been some of the best years of my life and I hope there are plenty more to come. I feel blessed to know what I want in life, and I am chasing it.
