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

This Years Budweiser Super Bowl Commercial Made Me Smile Through My Tears

I love football, so I don't only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials.  I'm surprised how close the big game is and we haven't heard a lot about what to expect for the expensive :30 and :60 seconds between football plays...until now.  The Budweiser commercial is sorta a sequel to last year's commercial.  This one had me smiling through my tears (I'm an emotional girl)!
