Kelly Krage

Hi! I’m Kelly! I have been part of the team since 2008 and have had a lot of fun in that time. Prior to that, I worked for a small town radio station and had a just for fun college radio show with friends. I’m a Faribault High School grad and hold a bachelors degree from the University of Minnesota Morris. When I’m not working, I love spending time with family and friends, walking my dog, checking out great local events, spending time outdoors, cheering for the Twins, and taking in as much live music as I can. Thanks for listening!

What Would You Do If You Won the Lottery?

This weekend's weather has me feeling a bit like we've won the lottery. The weather lottery. The sun is shining, it's warm outside and is all around pretty fantastic. But we know we aren't always this lucky in Minnesota, in fact, four years ago, we had snow on this date. So yeah, loving this weather and feeling pretty lucky. Which got me wondering, what would I do if I actually won the lottery?

Would You Attend Adult Summer Camp?

Growing up, each summer a handful of friends and classmates would spend a week or two at various summer camps. I never attended a summer camp, but always had a full summer. I think both have merits, and I've never regretted not attending camp as a child. But, as an adult, there is a summer camp that sounds fun, and adult summer camp!
