Hey! It is Luke Lonien and you will catch me all over the place. From playing your favorite country tunes from 6-Noon on 103.1 KFIL to delivering the latest news and information on News-Talk 1340 KROC-AM. In 2017, I put on over 3,000 miles to broadcast area high school football, volleyball, basketball, baseball and softball. I am a huge sports nut, and I won't apologize for it! I love our Minnesota sports teams no matter how many times they disappoint me. In my free time I enjoy bowling and playing softball. When I am not outside, I tend to watch a lot of Netflix or Hulu. Honestly, I probably watch it too much. I now workout at my local gym, so we will see how long that last. If you ever see me out and about, stop and say hi! I love chatting with listeners about anything!
