Pat Sweeney on KNOX

Pat Sweeney joins KNOX News after a long career in news and sports on North Dakota TV and radio.

Since moving from St. Paul to North Dakota in 1980, he has covered news and sports in Williston, Dickinson and Grand Forks.

In nearly 33 years at WDAZ-TV, he was three times voted North Dakota sportscaster of the year by his peers. His work for WDAZ News during the 1997 flood helped the station win an Edward R. Murrow Award for spot news coverage.

He previously worked for KNOX as a sportscaster and trivia show co-host.

A loyal Minnesota Twins fan, Pat says his claim to fame is holding Paul Molitor's water bottle for two years as manager of the Cretin High School boys basketball team.
