Krammer, a 2013 graduate of the University of Minnesota's Journalism program, got his start covering local news through internships for the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press in St. Paul. Krammer was born on the east coast, raised on the west coast and ended up in the middle. He transitioned to his first love, sports, by taking over the Vikings beat at 1500 ESPN in Minneapolis prior to joining the Star Tribune's coverage in July 2016.
