Through October 2018, most of these stories were first discussed live with John Hines on WCCO-AM, Mondays at 10:35 a.m. and occasionally on KARE-11 TV. John retired in September 2018 and as he left, so did the segment that used this content. Since then, stories are still occasionally posted, and every so often, they’re still due to to stories first shared on TV or on WCCO-AM with new mid-morning host Cory Hepola, such as with this report.
