Best TV Sports Anchor - 2012
Through the good times, the bad times, and the ugly times in Minnesota sports history, one guy has seen, and reported on, it all. Joe Schmit, the resident sports director at KSTP, has been on the front lines of Minnesota sports for more than 25 years and has proven he's not afraid to share his opinions on the latest sports news. Just recently, when Kevin Garnett made headlines by trashing the Timberwolves front office, Schmit was quick to fire back at KG, bluntly stating that he was "overpaid and not a great person." That kind of straight talk isn't something you'll find in just any anchor; you need one who truly cares about his town and his teams.
