When she’s not on-air, Teri is the production assistant for all of the Radio Mankato stations. You can also find her on in the afternoons on Oldies 100.5. In her spare time (haha) she enjoys good company, a good laugh, cold beer and yes, listening to music. She is a fur-mom to Remy and Jynx.

Cooley is from Wadena, a small town in Central Minnesota. He has lived and worked in virtually every corner of Minnesota. He is about 35 years deep into his “radio hobby” from KAVS:Thief River Falls, to KYCK:Crookston/Grand Forks, KWAD-KKWS:Wadena, WEVE:Eveleth/Virginia and KQDS:Duluth. When he is not on-air, Cooley is the Program Director at Radio Mankato. He is a “Homer” meaning all the local and state teams are his – even when they crawl in the drain! He likes travel, real estate, motorcycles, snowmobiling, sports, sunshine, 3 day weekends, puppies and “huntin’ fishin’ and lovin’ everyday”! Cooley is pretty social and loves meeting people so lookout Southern Minnesota! You can hear him 2-7 weekdays on “The Cruise” with Cooley on Minnesota 93!
