Thursday Morning Sports Page

Fred Friedman joins John and Heidi for Sports Page on the Thursday Morning Show. They start out with talk about the WNBA finals and the lack of network coverage for women’s basketball and Heidi gives some news on local high school soccer.

They discuss former Raiders Coach Jon Gruden and his homophobic and misogynistic emails and the scandal with the Proctor High School football team.

Heidi stumps John and Fred with trivia from senior correspondent Scott Hall. The theme is other meanings for sports terms. For example, a base hit and a bachelor is a single.

John has been listening to KAXE since the early days in 1976, and has worked as our Development Director since 1995. You can hear him on the Morning Show on Thursdays and Fridays. He is also the women’s basketball coach at Itasca Community College. John loves animals, golf, and complaining about the Minnesota Twins.
Heidi Holtan is News and Public Affairs Director for Northern Community Radio. She is on-air host and executive producer for the Morning Show and is also responsible for our local presence on All Things Considered and As It Happens. She produces thoughtful segments like Dig Deep and Strong Women.
