“Christmas City, wonderful city …”

You know the rest.

Dave Jensch, vice president and station manager at KBJR, joins us ahead of Friday’s Christmas City of the North Parade.

“You know it’s like one of the duties right up there. You know, make money. Do good journalism. And make sure the Christmas City parade happens,” Jensch said about his job at channel 6. 

Hear the history behind the winter parade, how things work behind the scenes, and the greatest moments of the annual holiday tradition that began in the 1950s.

What we are into this week: Netflix movie “1922,” binge-watching Tasty videos on Facebook, and the Netflix original “Longmire.”

Tune in every week to hear Duluth News Tribune reporters Brady Slater, Christa Lawler and Tom Olsen talk about current Duluth and Northland happenings. You can email us at, call our podcast line at 218-382-NEWS or follow us on Facebook. The podcast is produced by Samantha Erkkila.
