I'm Katie, the quirky midday host on 98 Country. I am one of those people that will never truly decide what I want to do in life...maybe I will just try a little bit of everything. After getting bored with my finance degree from St. Cloud State, I decided to go back for radio. I love country music but I can't sing to save my life...trust me. So, I decided on radio and here I am. I have spent the better part of my life in Central Minnesota and I absolutely love it here...but only in the summer. I really enjoy being able to wear flip flops and having outdoor parties...two things I'm uncomfortable doing in the winter. I am a huge animal lover which is why I have 2 dogs, 4 cats, a rabbit, two ducks, a rooster, 2 cows, 2 horses, 5 pygmy goats and 3 miniature donkeys with another one on the way. If I had my choice I would bring my Golden Retriever, Kaycee, with me everywhere. I am addicted to the television show Criminal Minds--I watch every new episode and even the reruns. I love reading just about everything but history, politics and current affairs are what I am most interested in. Anything else you want to know, tune in to the morning show or send me an email.
