For the past week, you may have heard a new voice on the air in the mornings. That voice is of Rob Jesselson, sports anchor at KNDO/KNDU-TV and SWX.

Rob will be getting you up to speed on what is going on in our state and in our valley in the sports world twice an hour Monday through Friday from 6:00 to 10:00 a.m. during the "Mike & Mike" program and the "Dan LeBatard Show".

From Rob's bio:
Rob Jesselson is an award winning sports journalist who couldn't be happier to be a part of the NBC Right Now and SWX family.

Originally from the northern suburbs of Chicago, Rob graduated from Southern Illinois University (Go Salukis!) with a B.A. in Mass Communications - Radio/Television. During his time in school, Rob fell in love with storytelling, specifically in sports.

Following graduation, Rob moved to Butte, Montana to work as a news reporter for ABC/Fox Montana. While in Butte, he covered everything from county commissioners meetings, to raging wildfires, and high-profile missing person cases.

After two years in Butte, Rob transitioned into sports reporting in Bozeman, Montana. There, he got the chance to cover local high school sports, along with Montana State University athletics. He worked as the sideline reporter for Bobcat football games, as well as co-hosted the "Bobcat Sports Report", a 30-minute coaches show for MSU football and basketball.

Rob lives and breathes sports. So when he's not working, you can typically find him watching or playing sports (softball or hockey). He's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, but admits the Seahawks, Mariners, and Sounders are growing on him.
