My name is Blaise Keller and I was born and raised in Madison, WI, until about the age of 8… then my mom, sister and I moved across the pond to England where I lived there for two years. We came back to the US in the fall of 2001 (I think) and settled in Zionsville, IN. That’s where I grew up, went to school and made all of my life long friends and memories.
After graduating as a Zionsville Eagle in 2010, I went off to Valparaiso University for 4 years to study meteorology. I had always wanted to be a biologist, specifically a herpetologist but I didn’t think I was smart enough plus I was playing Sims Nightlife and decided on weather randomly.
I went to Valparaiso for 4 years and got my bachelors degree, then I went to work at the NBC affiliate in Waterloo for 2 months before coming to Sioux Falls. I came out a year or so after moving to Sioux Falls and my family was very supportive. It was about a year and a half ago that I decided to once again come out, this time on KDLT News as a way to be more visible to the LGBTQ+ community.
