He will also be reporting and developing original content for the service, and will host a segment called "SHELBY Shares," spotlighting different communities throughout MINNESOTA.
"We are beyond excited to welcome DON SHELBY, one of the TWIN CITIES' most venerable news icons, to our team of highly experienced journalists," said BMTN founder RICK KUPCHELLA. "For the past two years BMTN has been forging an innovative path in providing up-to-date news through our growing network of radio stations, online and social media sites. We've also worked hard to strategically add seasoned journalists to our team and you don't get much more integrity, talent and experience than DON SHELBY. This is a phenomenal addition."
"I have witnessed a lot of changes in the news business and am looking forward to telling the amazing stories that make MINNESOTA great," said SHELBY. "I am excited to join BMTN and be a part of this new chapter in journalism. I'm especially excited about the opportunity to launch SHELBY Shares and tell in-depth stories about what's going on around our state."
