Hey everyone! I am Luke Lonien, and you will find me weekday mornings on 103.1 KFIL and I'll keep you up to date with news and information on Newstalk 1340 KROC-AM. Sports have always been a passion of mine. I love the Vikings, Twins, Wild and Wolves, and go bowling and play softball in my spare time. Broadcasting High School Sports in Southeast Minnesota is so much fun, and after every game, I am reminded just how talented the kids/athletes are in Southeast Minnesota. If I find time to relax, you'll find me looking for the next show to binge watch on Netflix or Hulu, spoiler, it is The Office. If you see me around the area, don't be afraid to say hi!
