Minnesota’s Morning Show with Pete & Cindy

Wake up the kids, make some breakfast, let the dog out, suck down some coffee, take a shower, shave (legs or face, up to you), brush your teeth, put on your socks, realize socks don’t match, put on new socks, get kids off to school, hop in car, commute to work.

We’re just here to help make it all go a little smoother. Everything you need to know to start your day here in Central Minnesota, and maybe even a smile or two. News, weather, traffic, and sports — and fun (we think that’s the most important part).

Thanks for startin’ your day with us!

Schedule

M-F 5:30 am - 10:00 am
