Kevin Bertels has been night Sports section coordinator for the Star Tribune, placing him in charge of the Sports copy desk, for nearly 20 years. He spent six months as a Star Tribune sports copy editor before that.  


Bertels is a native Kansan and now a determined Minnesotan, living in Oak Grove, where he raised three sons with his wife. He graduated from the University of Kansas with a journalism degree. Kevin dabbles in fishing, canoe camping, golfing and gambling, and he was way too involved in youth sports until his youngest son went to college.
