I’m a lifelong Rochester resident and host of Rochester Today on News-Talk 1340 KROC-AM. The lively one hour program runs from 11 a.m. to Noon weekdays Every Tuesday and Thursday conservative commentator and author Tom Ostrom joins me to talk about the events and issues of the day. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, James Rabe joins me to highlight the latest happenings in Rochester, along with regular appearances by the Rochester City Council President, Mayor, Olmsted County Sheriff, and the Superintendent of the Rochester Public Schools. You can also expect to hear from a list of local experts that includes Mike Dougherty from MNDOT, Steve Lange from Rochester Magazine, retired local attorney David Shulman, experienced automotive technician Dick Zeitler and Med City Movie Guy Chris Miksanek.
