Mike Leischner

I’m a Parkston native and proud 2009 graduate of Southwest Minnesota State University where I studied Radio and TV. After graduation I stayed in Marshall, MN for a few years covering sports and working at KMHL broadcasting while also serving as the PA announcer for several Marshall Area amateur baseball squads and SMSU Athletics. As for my SD resume, I was actively involved in Parkston legion and amateur baseball for several years in high school, including a stint as a reserve outfielder on Parkston’s 2005 Class B Legion baseball championship team (more like the bookkeeper, but who’s counting?)

Here at KMIT I serve as your host for the After Party weeknights from 2A-5A, where we spin your Country favorites and keep you going with news of the weird, sports and entertainment talk, plus the latest news on your favorite country stars and their upcoming tour dates. I also get to call an occasional game or two here on KMIT.

When I’m not doing radio you can find me watching or participating in some form of athletics, or helping my dad on the farm. My favorite clubs include the LA Angels, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Dynamo, University of Colorado, USD, and (of course) SMSU. I also closely follow soccer in England (Barclays Premier League), Spain’s La Liega, and the US Men’s National team.
