Ken Hayes

Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning for the last 10 years. 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!

July 5th Should Be A Day Off As Well

The 4th of July is a fantastic holiday.  It's summer, there's grilling, parades, dazzling fireworks and an all around good time.  Unfortunately, it continues until the wee hours of the morning.  If you're a person who has to work this morning, I'm sure you've probably had better nights sleep than last night.

No One Celebrates The 4th of July Like The Iron Range

I grew up on the range, right on Main Street in Biwabik, MN.  There were two holidays that really got you excited as a kid.  One was obviously Christmas, and the next was Independence Day.  I thought that everywhere celebrated The 4th of July like we did.  It wasn't until I grew up and moved away that I realized it wasn't as big of a deal in other places.

Professional Fisherman Pete Maina Teaches You How To Handle Muskies & Northerns Without Hurting Them [VIDEO]

This is a great video that anyone who fishes should watch.  Catch n release is the thing to do when you get a big fish.  If you snap photos and take a quick measurement you can always get a replica made of your big fish, but let it go back in the water for someone else to enjoy.   However, it's important you handle the fish so you don't hurt it.  Pete Maina shares the technique here.

Anderson Cooper Handled The Orlando Shooting in The Best Way Possible By Remembering & Honoring Victims [VIDEO]

I've said this before, and I'll say it again.  I hate the fact that when a mass shooting happens that all the focus goes on the gunman.  Yes it's important that authorities investigate what drove the person to shoot, and if there are terrorist connections, and anything else.  But what if we focused more of our attention on honoring those who lost their lives.  Nicely done Anderson Cooper.
