Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning since 2007. I grew up on ‘The Range’ and I’ve made the Twin Ports my home for over the last decade. It’s a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love to hunt, fish, and hang out in our great outdoors. I also love my job! It’s great to be able to connect with everybody in the Northland every morning and have a few laughs together. I’ve lived in many different parts of the Midwest, but nothing is as great as right here!
