About South Dakota Magazine

PUBLISHED IN HISTORIC YANKTON

SOUTH DAKOTA MAGAZINE explores the state, looking for interesting people and places that define our culture, heritage, arts, nature and communities.

The bi-monthly (6 per year) publication is written and headquartered at Yankton, the historic Missouri River city that was once the territorial capital.

Our publishing headquarters encompasses three old brick buildings in downtown Yankton that were built in the 1870s by Territorial Governor John Pennington.

Readers interested in history and architecture are always welcome to stop for a quick tour. You'll find us at 410 E. 3rd Street, at the far east end of Yankton's main street.

Thank you for your interest in the magazine. We hope you'll join our reading family, and explore South Dakota with us on a regular basis.

 


 

Meet Our Staff

        

Bernie Hunhoff - Founder and Editor-at-Large

  Bernie started the magazine in 1985 after working in the newspaper business in South Dakota. He has been stuck on gumbo trails in Lyman County, been hissed at by rattlers at Porcupine and forced to eat everything from lutefisk to roast goat. It's all part of the job of publishing South Dakota Magazine.

Jenessa Kniffen - Advertising Director

  Jenessa grew up in Watertown and attended USD. She likes to go for bike rides around Yankton with her husband, Chris, and their two children. Though she claims not to be a baker, she can whip up a mean batch of lemon bars.
 
       

Kendra Harrell - Circulation Director

  When she isn't wrangling our 40,000-name subscriber list, Kendra keeps busy juggling the soccer and swim team schedules of her four sons: Jakob, Kieran, Aidan and Noah. But she's an old hand at such balancing acts — she attended both SDSU and USD.
 
       

Jessica Anderson - Marketing

  Jess is basically Yankton royalty — she's one of the Ice House Andersons. Her aunt and uncle run the famed local bar where imbibers are encouraged to smash their empty beer bottles under the old dock. She loves running, reading, dogs and her family — not necessarily in that order.
