Tony Hart

I grew up in the Twin Cities, 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 as the Assistant Producer for the Dave Ryan Morning Show at KDWB (101.3 FM). After KDWB I did nights at WXPT (104.1 FM) in Minneapolis for just over 5 years before deciding it was time for a change, so I moved to Duluth to become the Program Director of WWAX, I worked there for about 5 years before coming to work here at MIX 108. I live in Superior with my wife Mindy, daughter Rose, son Harrison and dog Rawko. In my free time I enjoy playing with the kids, DIY home improvement projects, photography, and enjoying all the Twin Ports has to offer. See ya around town and THANKS for listening!

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.

Inmates’ Coloring Books Painted With Drugs [VIDEO]

Three inmates at the Cape May County Correctional Center in New Jersey wanted their drugs so badly, they used a children's coloring book to sneak them into their prison cells. We hate to give criminals so much credit, but the whole process was undeniably ingenious.

With the help of two civilians, the inmates painted numerous coloring books with what looked to be water color, but was actually a liquid version of a drug called Suboxone. They would have gotten away with it, but in February officers at the correction center were tipped off and began testing the books for drug substances.
