Ken Hayes

Hello, thanks for visiting my page! I've been here at B105 since 2007, and I've been a part of the Northland my whole life! I was born and raised on the Iron Range, and I've hopped around a few different parts of the country before returning to the Twin Ports where I call home. I love being close to the woods and the lakes where I can fish and hunt, and I think this is a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love doing the Breakfast Club each morning with my co-host Cathy, and I thank you for waking up with us!

Grandma’s Marathon Weather Has A History of Being Difficult Weather Conditions

I've been broadcasting the Grandma's Marathon race for years.  Many of those years has been down at the finish line out in the elements all morning.  I think in that amount of time it's been pretty rare that the weather has been perfect.  It's always either too nice and hot, or miserable, wet, and cold.

What Do Tickets Cost To Go To The CMT Music Awards? Not As Much As The Other Award Shows

The 2016 CMT Music Awards are tonight.  I've always wanted to go an awards show, because where else do you get to see ALL of these artists in one place?  Tickets for awards shows are usually astronomically high.  My neighbor across the street went to the ACM's and it cost 400 per ticket.  CMA tickets are also priced high.  But, it turns out the CMT Music Awards are the best bang for your buck.

Boat Cleaning Stations Set Up Near Lake Vermilion To Combat Aquatic Invasive Species

I fished Lake Vermilion this year for opener.  It was cold and miserable, and it took a lot of motivation to get out on the lake.  There were also some other people who were braving the elements at every landing on the lake.  They were boat inspectors working for the North St. Louis County Soil and Water Conservation.
