Ron Houk

I've been in the Twin Ports all of my life, growing up right around Pattison State Park. I have always loved music and grew up singing in church. Had my first DJ gig in fifth grade with one record (The Grease album). I've worked in radio on and off for over 20 years and I'm loving doing it full time now! In my spare time I host fundraisers, concert events, play in a band, camp, and love my motorcycle! Thanks for listening to me weekday afternoons from 2pm to 6 pm!

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
