Curt St. John

Curt St. John couldn’t be happier to join the Quick Country 96.5 staff! Growing up, being on the radio is all he dreamed of doing. After a stint that required him to wear a bear suit to be the mascot for an AM station that aired Chicago Cubs games in his hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, he did end up on the radio, working weekends and overnights while he earned his degree from UW-Eau Claire.

Curt next hosted a morning radio show in Eau Claire for 15 years, and after getting married, he and his wife moved to Rochester in April of 2012. In his spare time, Curt likes to get out on the mountain bike, take their dog, Chance, for a walk, catch ‘House Hunters’ on TV and work on his next batch of home-brewed beer. Now that he’s here in Minnesota, Curt loves to follow the Twins and Wild– although he still confesses to rooting for certain MLB, NFL and Big 10 football teams that hail from a state just east of here. Curt is excited to keep you company in the afternoon and play the most continuous country on your way home!

Just How Much Is A Trillion Dollars?

Are you buying a Powerball ticket for Saturday's drawing? The jackpot currently stands at $230 million. Should you win, and if you choose the cash payout, you'd take home $157.8 million. Once Uncle Sam and the state of Minnesota take their share, you're probably looking at around a final total of about $81 million. Still not bad. But that's just a drop in the bucket compared to a TRILLION dollars. So, just how much is a trillion?

Local News Anchor Loses It On-Air…Why?

In the now 26-plus years I've been working on the air, there have been a few times I've kind of lost it. Doing the morning show the day after 9/11 back in 2001 was a tough one. So was the day a local sheriff's deputy back in Wisconsin was killed in the line of duty. This local TV anchor is pretty emotional, too -- but for a slightly different reason.
