Katie Kartak

I'm Katie, the quirky midday host on 98 Country. I am one of those people that will never truly decide what I want to do in life...maybe I will just try a little bit of everything. After getting bored with my finance degree from St. Cloud State, I decided to go back for radio. I love country music but I can't sing to save my life...trust me. So, I decided on radio and here I am. I have spent the better part of my life in Central Minnesota and I absolutely love it here...but only in the summer. I really enjoy being able to wear flip flops and having outdoor parties...two things I'm uncomfortable doing in the winter. I am a huge animal lover which is why I have 2 dogs, 4 cats, a rabbit, two ducks, a rooster, 2 cows, 2 horses, 5 pygmy goats and 3 miniature donkeys with another one on the way. If I had my choice I would bring my Golden Retriever, Kaycee, with me everywhere. I am addicted to the television show Criminal Minds--I watch every new episode and even the reruns. I love reading just about everything but history, politics and current affairs are what I am most interested in. Anything else you want to know, tune in to the morning show or send me an email.

I’d Love To Hop In The Car And Road Trip To Wyoming

I have a friend who lives in South Dakota and he keeps giving me a hard time about, well everything.  He says I need to add more spice to my life and was joking that I should make a trip to Sioux Falls.  While South Dakota wouldn't be my first choice, it did get me thinking about where I'd go if I could just take off for the weekend.
