I am a writer living in New Brighton, Minnesota, part of the metropolitan Twin Cities area.
I spent 34 years at Minnesota Public Radio as a journalist, producer and disc jockey. It was my privilege to spend a quarter century working with Jim Ed Poole (Tom Keith) as co-host of The Morning Show.
Tom Keith retired in 2008 and I’m sad to say he passed away in October of 2011. His many fans still miss him though his work lives on as part of Prairie Home Companion’s colorful history.
Meanwhile, I ventured into online and HD broadcasting with MPR’s Radio Heartland. My MPR job was eliminated in the summer of 2010.
I host the Trail Baboon blog, take on freelance writing, voice work and consulting projects and do volunteer work for organizations that inspire me.
In June of 2011 I joined KFAI Community Radio at 90.3 FM in Minneapolis and 106.7 FM St. Paul, and currently serve as the station’s news director.
Thanks for visiting. I love to hear from former listeners and current readers, and I’m always open to new ideas and suggestions.
