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

Cathy Kates’ Daughter Is Being Stalked By A Bird, Can You Explain?

I'm not kidding!  She was over for Mother's Day and started to tell us of a crazy robin that is stalking her.  I immediately thought about when birds eat berries and get drunk, but we're too early in the season for that.  Wait till you read this, THEN, tell me what you make of it!

Cathy Kates Thanks The Duluth Lions Club And The Community [VIDEO]

It's something I look forward to every year, flippin' pancakes for the Duluth Lion's Club.  My husband told me a few years back that he has wanted to flip pancakes at the Lion's Club Pancake Day since he attended the event as a five year old boy.  I told him I could make that dream come true and we've been flippin' ever since!

Cross “Ride Bike With The Mayor” Off Your Bucket List, You’re Invited To Ride Bike & Lunch With Mayor Ness

When I got my first job at the Wrenshall School pool I rode my bike to work on a SUPER hilly, loose graveled Alcohol Road (yes, that is the actual name of the road).  Not because I was "green" or I enjoyed the exercise.  It was because my mom worked and if I wanted the job it was bike or walk.  Where was National Bike to Work Day then?
