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!

Works wonders, it does."  I have a hard time reading any quote where Rod mentions his "privates", but if that's your thing check out the video of Rod after the jump.

It's always a national story when a former first lady dies -- but when Betty Ford passed away over the weekend at the age of 93, the news affected not only those who remembered her years in the White House, but the thousands of people whose lives were affected by her groundbreaking work in addiction therapy.
