Even though sports aren't happening right now, Fred Friedman and Kyle Erickson still had plenty to talk about on Thursday's Morning Show, including college eligibility, the Olympics postponement, and trivia.
Our Early Bird fishing guide Jeff Sundin is joined by Alaskan fishing guide Keith Holtan on the Thursday Morning Show. They talk with John and Heidi about the possibilities of social distancing while fishing, the availability of bait, and they share recipes and cooking tips for preparing fish. Most importantly in these trying times, they talk about the therapeutic aspects of being out fishing.
KAXE/KBXE's Heidi Holtan hosted a statewide conversation with Minnesota’s Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan. It was an opportunity to ask questions about Minnesota’s response and plans concerning the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mandie Alto, executive director of Advocates for Family Peace, joins Heidi Holtan on the Morning Show. They talk about the services available to help people in situations of domestic violence during this time of social distancing.
All this week and into the days and weeks ahead we are working hard to bring you local conversations about preparing for and living with the pandemic COVID-19. Schools are closed and leaders are scrambling to find a new normal in a not-normal time.
In an executive order Governor Tim Walz called off schools until March 27th. That is most likely NOT the date they will reopen, it's the date when schools need to have their plans in place for long-term distance learning.
Thursday mornings at 7:45 we talks Sports on KAXE/KBXE. Our regular team includes John "Big Sexy" Bauer, Kyle "smallies" Erickson, Fred "no hockey" Friedman and Heidi "MN Lynx Only" Holtan. Today our senior correspondent Scott Hall sat in for Big Sexy. The MN Lynx are in a small slump, and the boys are holding out hope still for their beloved MN Twins.
