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

After 130 Years, Ladies Home Journal Ends It’s Monthly Publication

I remember my mom faithfully reading the Ladies Home Journal magazine when I was a child and as I grew older I would pick one up from time to time while waiting in the dentist and doctor's office.  It's sad to think that something that has been around for SO long won't be available anymore, but at least it won't be gone all together.  They do plan to publish it on a quarterly basis.

Ken and Cathy Ask “What Wasn’t Always Automatic”? [Bonus Miranda Lambert Video]

This morning as I was sitting in the studio reading about Ultra-Ever, a self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete, Miranda Lambert's song Automatic was playing in my ear.  I remember when we use to have to wash our vehicles by hand!  That started to bring me back and I started thinking of things we use to HAVE to do, back when things weren't so automatic.  What do you remember?  Tell us below!!!

Duluth Trails Temporarily Closed Due To Our Wet Conditions

It's expected with the spring-like weather we've been experiencing.  Wet, soggy trails that are used for running, hiking and biking.  The scenery is beautiful, but the footing unsteady and to save the trail from being worn down and damaged, we need to refrain from using it until we dry up (which will hopefully be soon!)

Denfeld’s Entire Student Body Bands Together To Tell The World “It’s Always A Good” Time At Their School [Incredible Video]

A couple weeks ago I came home to a gaping hole in my basement where our treadmill use to sit.  Who would want to steal that????  I called my husband and he had informed me that Denfeld was borrowing it for a lip-synch dub video.  I had no idea why they were making or video but, after viewing the end result, I am in awe and amazed at the talent and  camaraderie of the Denfeld students.  You'll want to share this on social media!
