Who is Rush Limbaugh? In 'Who's Who,' he's listed as the founder of the Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies. Read More
In the dictionary you'll find his picture under 'incisive political commentary.' With half his brain tied behind his back just to make it fair, Rush confronts and confounds liberals with the Truth. He skewers their schemes, obliterates their obfuscation, punctures their pretensions, and laughs long and loud at liberal legerdemain. He is the most entertaining and listened-to radio host in America. But isn't that only what you'd expect from a man with talent on loan from God?
Patrick Reusse first hit the Twin Cities media scene as a sportswriter in 1968 at the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Dispatch, then later made his radio debut in 1980 as the co-host of Sunday Night SportsTalk on AM 1500 KSTP with Joe Soucheray. Read More...
Reusse now tackles the world of sports every afternoon from noon to 2pm during his weekday show Reusse on Sports. One of the Twin Cities most well-known media personalities, Reusse previously had written four-to-five columns per week for the Star Tribune over the past two decades. He continues in his role as a sports columnist with the paper, but has scaled back his writing to two columns per week. I see doing five radio shows as a more challenging task than writing five columns per week,'' Reusse said. "Red Smith, the greatest sports columnist of all-time, once was asked why he didn't try another area of the newspaper and said, 'When I need a column, I always know where to find the dugout.' Patrick Reusse continues from 2-4pm each afternoon with Joe Soucheray, co-hosting SportsTalk, the show that started it all!

Most recently a show heard exclusively on Saturday mornings, SportsTalk™ is now on-air from 2-4pm every weekday afternoon, as well as 10a-12n every Saturday morning. Tune in for the events of the day, with the unique commentary from two of the Twin Cities most popular media personalities, Joe and Pat.
After more than a decade of co-hosting the "World's Most Widely Listened-To Sports-Talk Show" with Patrick Reusse on AM 1500 KSTP, Joe Soucheray began hosting an afternoon radio show...solo. Read More
Joe's first act was to establish his own town, Garage Logic, where, unlike any other town in Minnesota (and the USA?), Common Sense is the single guiding principle. It is located "down the road from Diversityville, but not as far as Liberal Lakes." Since its inception, listeners have been relocating to this growing municipality in record numbers. The last census showed Garage Logic as the state's fourth largest city with a population of 100,000. As the self-appointed Mayor of Garage Logic, Joe is sometimes referred to as "Your Honor." He and G.L. residents enjoy power equipment (chain saws, weed whips, belt sanders, etc.), interrogating candidates for public office in their garages, the cohesiveness of neighborhoods, and minding their own business. Joe's well-known hobby is restoring antique boats. Before he became Mayor, Joe's checkered past included many diverse occupations ... assembly-line worker and faucet manufacturer, corrugated cardboard worker and rock band drummer ("Bananas"). In addition to holding down his weekly Mayoral post on AM 1500 KSTP, Joe also is a featured columnist in the St. Paul Pioneer-Press. He also is affectionately referred to as "the kindly curmudgeon." - Visit The Official Garage Logic Website

Looking back on George's life and his passion for all things unexplained, it seems almost fated that he would fulfill this unique role. Read More
While still a teenager, George joined NICAP, the UFO organization that was a precursor to today's MUFON. George immersed himself in the field, "so much so that I decided I wanted to go into broadcasting in order to do unusual stories in the paranormal and stories that the mainstream media didn't want to touch," he told After Dark. Indeed, George's very first broadcast interview, while a young radio reporter for Detroit's WCAR-AM, was with Roswell expert/physicist Stanton Friedman, whom he has remained a lifelong friend with. Now with a 30-year history in the broadcasting field under his belt in such positions as executive television news producer and news director, George brings a wide swath of experience to the table. In fact, at age 28 he was the youngest major news market news director in the country when he was at KMSP-TV in Minneapolis. But it was just a couple of years ago that he came to the attention of Premiere Radio Networks, who heard him on his late-night radio program on KTRS in St. Louis. Known as "the Nighthawk," George's penchant for covering paranormal topics with enthusiasm and skill impressed Premiere. He was then brought on board to host the Sunday night Coast to Coast show. And as Art's back problems became more severe, George was honored to fill in for him on a regular basis. "Coast to Coast AM may just be the most unusual show I have ever witnessed or been a part of. You really almost have to be born into that arena, I think, in order to handle it. I was very lucky in that's the way I was guiding my own career. It was this thirst to really get to the bottom of some of these stories that kept pushing me," George said. Other highlights of George's life include serving nine years in the U.S. Naval Reserve and winning three Emmy Awards as a news executive. But certainly manning the helms of Coast to Coast AM is a pinnacle for George, allowing him to pursue the unexplained on a grand scale. It's become his destiny to guide the huge audience from more than 500 radio stations through the night in this dynamic format created by Art Bell. - Visit his Official Website

Kim Komando is the host of The Kim Komando Show, a top-10-rated radio talk show with over 8 million listeners every week. She is also a syndicated columnist, and the author of seven books. Read More
Kim began her businesses in 1992 after several years of selling computer and telephone systems for IBM, AT&T and Unisys. She started with a radio show at KFYI and a column in the Arizona Republic. Both are in Phoenix. Today more than 400 radio stations carry her weekly show around the world. Kim also is a syndicated columnist, appearing in over 100 newspapers, including USA Today. She also writes a technology column for small business on Microsoft's Small Business Web site. In addition, she publishes three e-mail newsletters that have more than 1 million subscribers, and she is frequently asked to appear on network television, including CNN. Kim's success has been phenomenal, but she's remained true to her beginnings. Her radio show is still carried by KFYI. Kim's roots in computers go back more than 25 years. Her mother worked on the UNIX development team at Bell Labs in New Jersey. "When I was sick, I went to work with her," Kim said. "I used to play a game called Hunt the Wumpus. Years later, I was writing an article about UNIX. Unknown to me, I had been beta testing the game." Kim was raised under what she calls the "life acceleration program." Her father picked her up at school everyday. They would go home and have a bowl of soup or crackers and cheese. "He would ask me what I had learned in school," she said. "If I said nothing, he would have me read a story in the Wall Street Journal. I'd have to tell him what I learned." Her parents taught their four children self-reliance. Kim often went grocery shopping with her dad. She learned at a tender age how to select beef and why some ketchups were better than others. When the family traveled, she was expected to check in the entire family and handle the ticket purchase. The acceleration paid off. She graduated high school at 15, and, a month later, turned 16 and moved out. That fall, she entered Arizona State University. She started as an architecture major. But her father asked for some research on what various jobs paid. The research, and the report she produced, changed her life. She discovered that the computer industry paid very well. Being interested in money and in computers, she changed her major to computer information systems. Kim graduated in 1985. She went into sales, but after seven years, she grew tired of the corporate grind. So on Jan. 1, 1992, she went out on her own. Like most entrepreneurs, Kim struggled to get her business off the ground. The first project was an infomercial, with which she planned to sell an instructional video on using computers. Kim threw herself into writing the infomercial. "I would get up at 6 in the morning and go ride my bike," she said. "I would be at my desk at 7 and work till 4. Then I'd go to aerobics and come back and work some more." It took a year to finish the infomercial. Kim was living on her savings, which were nearly depleted. Finally, the infomercial ran on late-night television. After the airing of the first show, she called to see if the tapes were selling. They were moving out the door, she was told. "I was busted. My first check was for $26,000. I thought, 'Oh my, I've never seen so much money at once in my life.'" After finishing the infomercial, Kim pitched America Online about taking over its computer section. AOL agreed, and Kim launched the effort on Thanksgiving 1994. She picked a holiday in hopes that her first day would be slow. It wasn't; the response was overwhelming. "I called my parents and said, 'I don't know what I've done.'" The pact with AOL lasted several years, as did a stint with Fox News. During this period, in the middle '90s, she got her radio show off the ground. She first approached the networks, but they were uninterested. A CBS vice president told her computers were a fad, much like pet rocks. Rejected by the big guys, she formed a partnership with Barry Young, a leading talk show host at KFYI in Phoenix. They formed WestStar TalkRadio Network and built a studio. Kim did the marketing; Barry kept the equipment running and formatted the show. Gradually, the show blossomed, as hundreds of radio stations signed on. Kim has since acquired the status of a cultural icon. The 20th anniversary edition of Trivial Pursuit includes the question: "Who earned the moniker Digital Goddess while hosting a radio show on the Internet?" The answer, of course: Kim Komando
