MIX 108 Says Goodbye To A Duluth Legend
After fifteen-plus years of radio in Duluth, one legend passes the mic to another one.
November 30th marked the end of an era for a man who always wanted to be on the radio. From being a random jukebox singing as loud as he could, to always hitting the punchline at the right time.
Tony Hart grew up in the Twin Cities and after high school he started his radio career in North Dakota. After a few years he moved back to the the Twin Cities and worked as an Assistant Producer for the Dave Ryan morning show. He then worked nights at 104.1 FM in Minneapolis before looking for a change of scenery and moving to Duluth.
After about five more years of working as a Program Director for a different radio station in town, he came to find his home of over ten years at MIX 108. If you were listening yesterday (11/30/22), Tony made the decision to hang up his headphones and move his career in a new direction at the DECC.
You can listen to Tony's final hour on the air here.
Tony passed the mic to a very familiar face, Nick Cooper.
Cooper grew up in Central Minnesota and with a voice like his, he picked up a degree in Mass Communications at Bemidji State. He eventually found his way to the Northland where you can see him with a camera in his hand or hear him tell a great story of his outdoor adventures or being let down by a Minnesota sports team.
Cooper spent just under ten years doing the MIX 108 Morning Show with Jeanne Ryan. He will now be back at home by doing afternoons on MIX 108 where you'll be able to hear him Monday - Friday from 2 pm - 6 pm.
