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 final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) 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 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

Craft Swap At The Duluth Public Library [Bonus Easter Craft Video]

My craft room looks like total chaos and one reason is that it's hard to get rid of anything, ANYTHING!  But, as I continue to do craft projects, I keep accumulating crafting supplies that I didn't use.  The Duluth Public Library had a great idea and turned it into an event that we can all benefit from.

Is Minnesota’s Moose Population Declining?

I can honestly say I've only witnessed a live moose in the wild once in my life.  It was just outside of Remer, MN on our way back from Walker.  He was standing in the ditch near the road lazily chewing his cud not really caring that we had stopped to gawk at him.  I guess we were gawking because you just don't see that animal out in their natural habitat very often.

Travis Tritt At Grand Casino SOLD OUT, B105 Is Your Hook Up To Tickets

Many Christmas' ago before I was in country radio I went to our churches Christmas Eve service in Carlton.  One family of our church had brought a guest to the service.  A man dressed in all black wearing a black cowboy hat.  I didn't talk to the man or even look at him except to "pass the peace" when the Pastor asked us to, but years later, I found out who it was and at Fan Jam he confirmed it.
