About the broadcaster

Duane Schlei

Grew up on an Iowa family farm, entered college, and after a year and a half decided a more specific approach to broadcasting was needed and switched to Brown Institute.  Landed the first job in Rapid City then moved around Minnesota, Iowa, and back to Rapid City doing a variety of on air duties and sales.

Then made a career change into commercial solid waste sales for 12 years, then took some time off for health reasons, and now I am back on radio doing  mornings here on KOOL 101.9 and sales at Badlands Broadcasting.  Most of my careers were spent in Rapid City, and based on my travels there is no better place to be.
