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

Duluth And Superior Firefighters Seek Generous Donations When Filling The Boot For MDA This Week

I have worked for the MDA.  I know, first hand, how important our Firefighters are in the Northland.  Not only because they are first responders to our homes and families when we have an emergency, but because they pour their heart and soul into raising much needed funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  They choose to raise money in a unique and fun way called "Fill The Boot".
