Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her second year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 16 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

A Bittersweet Look at the Awe-Inspiring Internal MOA Metrodome Destruction with Cathy Kates as She Picks Up Her Dome Memorabilia [VIDEO]

The day started out grand!  We were heading to the MOA field, the Metrodome to pick up our Viking's Season Ticket seats we had owned for the past 26 years.  Who knew the adventure that lay ahead would be SUCH a fiasco?  However, the extra time did allow me to take some great video of the Metrodome destruction.  Check out the amazing destruction in this "last look" video before it's demolished forever.

Reality Check: Viral Video Gives Me Shocking Realization About Last Vikings Game at the Metrodome

Photo: Cathy KatesAfter the last Vikings game at the Metrodome on December 29, 2013, I came back to work and said the fans on that historic day were docile.  So quiet through most of the game and couldn't figure it out.  We thought it was because people wanted to "say" they were at the last game...now get it over with.  But after watching this viral video, it hit me!  (and I was guilty too)

City of Duluth Updates Parking Violation Fines for 2014

My co-host Ken and I just talked about the fact that my husband and I had gotten a parking ticket which HE forgot to pay.  We received a second notice, I got after him and it was paid immediately.  If you have one (or more) that you've been putting off paying, you may want to "git r' done" before the fine increases.

Cross Country Ski for Free During the National Winter Trails Day Celebration, Register NOW

I have down hill skied and in recent years learned to snow shoe (yes, there's a learning curve to that), but I have never been on a pair of cross country skis.  When we down hill ski one of my favorite things to do is "skate ski" from the bottom of the hill to the chair lift, so I think I would enjoy learning how to cross country ski and be able to take in the solitude of swooshing through the woods!  What to learn for free with me?

Get Healthy in 2014 With Taste of Home’s Kale & Bacon Salad with Honey-Horseradish Vinaigrette Recipe

Even if you didn't verbalize "getting healthy and exercising more" in 2014 as a New Year's resolution, I'll just bet it's in the back of your mind.  My resolution this year was "to take the time".  Stop procrastinating and take the time to do the things I need and want to get done.  Ken, my co-host asked what "things"?  IT could be anything!  From including more time with friends and family to finally cleaning the craft room.  But, one of my "things" is to also provide a healthier diet for my family and Taste of Home will be a big part of making that happen in 2014!

We’re Buying Our Metrodome Viking’s Season Ticket Chairs!

We have been Minnesota Viking's Season Ticket holders for 26 years.  Yes, they've had their ups and downs, but we were always excited to sit front row in an end zone at an NFL game.  Many friends and family members used our tickets when we couldn't go, so why not buy the chairs that we called "ours" for so many years.
