Steve Tanko

I’m a proud life-long resident of the Northland: Born and raised on the Iron Range, I’ve lived in the Twin Ports all of my adult years. I enjoy the fact that we get to enjoy all four seasons and I love the natural beauty that our area provides. I’m worked for the company that owns KOOL 101.7 since 1993 and I enjoy the fact that no two days are ever the same. Although you hear me on the radio during the mid-day shift, my mail role is Production Manager for our stations – writing and producing the commercials you hear. I’m married with one son. In my spare time (what is that?) I enjoy cooking, collecting records (primarily classic country), studying history and politics and being involved in the community on a variety of boards and committees.
