Jake Rongholt is the Weekend Sports Anchor/Multimedia Journalist for WGEM News.

His passion for sports goes all the way back to when he watched SportsCenter in the mornings with his father, when he was a kid. 

Jake graduated from the Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting at Full Sail University with a Bachelor's Degree in Sportscasting.

Jake was born in Honolulu, HI and grew up in Lakeville, MN. 

However, he only cheers for one Minnesota team. The Minnesota Twins. Because his favorite player of all-time is Kirby Puckett. 

Jake's fandom card is with the Green Bay Packers, Dallas Stars, Wisconsin Badgers and the Chicago Bulls. 

On his off time, he's in the gym or watching film classics like Heat or the Godfather. He's a proud fanatic of film and movies.
