Here's more than you ever cared to know about me. I'm a "lifer".  ...Born and raised on Minnesota's Iron Range...moving to the Twin Ports area 20 years ago. I've worked for these radio stations for18 years and love every minute of it.  Although you hear me on the radio during the mid-day, my main role is Production Manager for our stations - writing and producing commercials. In my spare time (what's that?)  I'm married with one child.  I'm active in my son's school and volunteer in the community and serve on a variety of boards and committees.  I love to cook and have collected records for my entire life.  Although I spin "the Northland's Favorite Hits" on the radio, my collection is mostly comprised of classic country.   I'm also interested in business and economics. Thanks for listening!!

5 New Things To Try This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the sort of meal that most people don't mess with.  Tradition calls for a turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing (or dressing - depending on which you prefer), vegetables, maybe some bread, a pumpkin pie, and a good cup of coffee for dessert.  When you think of it  - it's no wonder that no one changes that menu up much: Thanksgiving really is about the food.
