Trevor Peterson, Videographer

Oh hey, it’s Trevor, AgweekTV’s video guy, editing guru and house tennis enthusiast. While he’s full of dad jokes, he also regales our team with ’80s movie references and odd facts that always start with, “Hey, did you know about this?”

Trevor is as reliable as they come, and the AgweekTV crew and our team at Click can depend on him for technical and creative support.

Experienced and easygoing, this is Trevor.

Please describe the work you do at Click.

I am a videographer, editor and producer for AgweekTV, a weekly show we produce here at Click. That means I shoot interviews and video with our reporters. I also edit video that gets sent to us from our reporters on location throughout the region, which is North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska. I end up traveling some, but typically only within 90 minutes of our studio. Our Agweek reporting staff travel more than I do.

What’s your educational background?

I grew up wanting to get into television sports. After college, I spent four years at the NBC affiliate in Sioux Falls, SD, then came back to my hometown of Fargo for 12.5 years working in the sports department at WDAY TV. Then, after 16 years in TV sports (working nights and weekends), an opportunity arose at Forum Communications (which is now Click) to work in the video department and still do video and editing, which I enjoy.

Now I have a much more “normal” schedule, which means very few nights and weekends so that I can spend more time with my young family.

I had no idea that I would enjoy covering ag news as much as I do. I still get to shoot and edit, which is what I enjoy. But in my role, I also have the opportunity to get out of the office, talk to people, and learn about the ag and livestock industry.

My co-workers at Click and Agweek are great to work with, and that’s also helped make my role very enjoyable. 

Family life?

I’ve been married for 15 years. My wife and I have twin 7-year-old girls. My role as a dad and husband are my two favorite things.

I love doing stuff as a family and getting to experience new things with my girls as they grow. I like exposing them to lots of new experiences, including sports, which I’m really passionate about. My wife and I coach their basketball team, but we’ve also let them try out music, dancing, art, you name it. We really try to give them a vast range of experiences to see what they like.

 Hobbies, talents?

I’m an avid tennis and basketball player. I still enjoy basketball as much now as I did when I started playing in second grade. I picked up tennis again three years ago after a 20-year hiatus, and my passion for that is now rivaling basketball.

I feel extremely lucky to have the health to be able to do those activities on a regular basis. I play either tennis and basketball about four times a week. They’re kind of my stress reliever, too.  I enjoy the competition, camaraderie and exercise that both activities bring.
