Give the guy a break. Probably the most exciting thing to happen in ND this decade. Damn, they replaced Courtney Kabot (who went back to NY) and Joel Porter with an asian and a latino?  Oh the diversity!Joel and Courtney actually had some on air cohesiveness. KFYR also has a black weatherman. He's cool, too..

I moved last July, so I haven't seen the asian gal. Their penchant for hiring newbies with no experience is actually quite painful to watch sometimes. And Monica really needs to do something with her farking hair. I'm sure between her and Cliff Naylor both working at the studio they can afford to treat a little alopecia.

And milk and gas are a lot higher in ND. Milk was close to $5/gal when I left last year and in San Antonio it was $3.25. Gas in ND was $3.69 and in SA it was $3.39. Rent is going crazy there because of the oil fields, and even though the fast food joints are offering $8-$8.50/hr, that isn't enough to pay $700 plus utilities (1BR), plus car/ins/phone/internet/etc. And good luck getting any job that is paying more than $9/hr. Call centers, fast food, and retail is about all there is. I went to work for the state of ND with a Master's Degree in Accountancy, 12 years of government auditing, and was only making $32K. Take home barely paid the expenses for me and 2 kids, let alone have anything left over.

Bismarck hasn't caught up with Williston / Minot as far as salaries, but neither have rents and utilities.  McD's, Wal*Mart and all manner of no-skill jobs are all starting at at least $11-15 an hour, most times with a huge bonus if you stay more than six months.  And if you were only making $32k in a state gig then you were getting screwed or are lying.  I interviewed for a state gig last year doing video that had a starting range of $45-65k.   The city of Minot has an entry accounting position open right now that starts at $55k plus govt benifits (pension, cheap medical, etc.).  In addition to oil, there are tons of manufacturing jobs that have moved in to the state, and as with all major employers, they need accountants, marketing, sales, office staff and more.  The idea that it's all just call centers and fast food is a shallow mined joke.  You could probably make a single phone call today and get a good job with great pay anywhere in the state because EVERYBODY is hiring.

To whoever asked what one would do if they cursed at work, you should come to where I work.

The company is 85% male and everyone curses so much its unbelievable. Just the other day the VP of the east coast called and ask to speak to our director of operations. When I let him know he had stepped out, he said, "ha! When he comes back, tell him to go fark himself". Keep in mind this guy sounded very eloquent and articulate.

My boss calls us pussies and gays all the time. Not too appropriate but he's leaving soon.

Look up state auditor II...I left the national guard as a GS12 step 5, and that was the best that was open at the time. The state HR director (who used to be Guard) also tried to at least get me in as III, but the supervisor wouldn't budge. So, no I am not lying, and Bismarck rents are ridiculously high unless you live in a dump. You can't rent a decent house for less than a grand, and my son's 2 br apartment on the east side (rosser and 26th) went from $640 to $910. It's not that nice of a place. The fast food joints in Williston are paying higher, but the A&W closed down because they refused to pay more than $7.50, and most of the other joints are recruiting overseas workers and piling them up in dumpy apartments. So unless you live or lived in Bismarck recently, stfu.

on a similar note, a lot of the overseas workers are blah people who don't have cars, most likely can't afford cars, and Bismarck public transportation sucks. You see those poor souls walking everywhere.  Some girl was at the CVS next to the Golden Corral (or whatever it is now) buying tampons on her break and in broken English asked me for a ride back because her boss had just walked into the stoor, she didn't want her boss to see her walking back. Really? They treat them so shiatty she couldn't even walk NEXT DOOR on her break? I sincerely doubt they are paying these folks $11/hr. If that were the case my son would still be working in fast food. He quit because he wasn't getting more than $9, and that was just 10 months ago. I know walmart in Bismarck is still only offering $9-9.50 to start (nights) because my other son just started there.

Good Evening, I'm Van Tieu.  First, I'd like to extend a warm welcome to all of you watching on YouTube.

jaybeezey: So i'm wondering if he froze up on TV when he had a chance to speak because someone was whispering into his ear that he had a hot mic? Because if his short bio speech was indicative of his on air personality he wouldn't last long in the  industry anyway.


Most likely getting reamed out by the producer on IFB.

Until this happened I did not know KFYR was also a TV station.

in 1980, their AM signal provided the soundtrack to my schoolbus commutes.
