Tony Hart

I grew up in the Twin Cities, graduated from Champlin Park High School and as long as I can remember I wanted to be on the radio. After graduating high school I immediately went to work in Grand Forks, ND at KZLT for a few years before moving back to Minneapolis to work with Dave Ryan at KDWB. After KDWB I did nights at WXPT in Minneapolis for just over 5 years before I decided it was time for a change, so I moved up north and the rest is history! I live in Superior with my wife Mindy, daughter Rose and dog Rawko. In my free time I enjoy playing with Rose, doing home improvement projects and watching movies. I don't like winter very much, I hate being cold, but summertime in the Northland makes it worth it...right? See ya around town and THANKS for listening!

Shirley MacLaine Tells Oprah: I Slept With Three Men in One Day

The Oscar-winning actress, who was there to promote her new book,'I'm Over All That: And Other Confessions,' told Oprah she had "an awful lot of lovers" in her time ("and a lot of awful lovers, too," she quipped), including one instance in which she slept with three people in one day.

Helen Mirren Hosts ‘Saturday Night Live’ [VIDEOS]

'Saturday Night Live' got a touch of class this weekend, thanks to host Dame Helen Mirren, who was there to promote her new movie 'Arthur.'

The 65-year-old Oscar winner certainly gave it her all in an episode that seemed to rely on two things: her never-aging beauty and her ability to impersonate famous people.

When she wasn't pole dancing or letting Kristen Wiig get up close and personal with her, uh, "magical bosom," Mirren gamely impersonated everyone from actress Helena Bonham Carter to author Mary Shelley. In one sketch, Mirren portrayed First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who, in a riff on the much-maligned miniseries 'The Kennedys,' was revealed to be a lesbian with a thing for Marilyn Monroe (Abby Elliot). The result? Some girl-on-girl action between Mirren and Elliot. (No complaints here.)

Legendary film director Sidney Lumet, the man behind such classic movies as '12 Angry Men,' 'Serpico' and 'Network,' died Saturday morning of lymphoma at his home in Manhattan, the New York Times has confirmed. He was 86.

Man Holds Up Sister in Adult Bookstore Robbery

20-year-old Nathaniel Atkinson has just been convicted of a stick-up robbery of a Lincoln, Nebraska adult book store. But here's the catch: His sister was working behind the porn shop's register when he committed his crime.

Atkinson avoided being identified by his kin by wearing a mask and socks on his hands. However, surveillance cameras were able to lead the authorities back to him. After the judge sentenced him to 16 to 32 months in prison, Atkinson expressed remorse, and made reference to a gambling addiction.

In his opening monologue, John proclaimed Òthe bitch is backÓ before launching into a series of jokes about his new baby boy, whom John said was born with Òten fingers, ten toes, and $400 million dollars.Ó John also joked about Lady Gaga being his sonÕs (named Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John) godmother.

Montana Rep. Alan Hale Defends Drunk Driving [VIDEO]

Montana Republican Congressman Alan Hale is apparently courting a new (and hopefully small) group of voters: drunk drivers.

Yep, this week, Hale actually argued against a new House Bill that according to the Missoulian would allow courts in Montana to "look back to impaired driving offenses up to 10 years old when someone is being punished for a drunk-driving charge, a change from the current five-year cutoff."

Hale's argument? DUI laws are "destroying a way of life that has been in Montana for years and years" and that they are not doing small businesses any good.
