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!

Oscar favorite Natalie Portman also took home the Best Actress statuette for her role in "Black Swan," and Melissa Leo and Christian Bale of "The Fighter" cleaned up in the supporting role categories.
