Avid radio listeners are forever seeking that station that has everything they want — just set it and forget it. In the Fargo-Moorhead region, that’s 106.9 The Eagle.

Listeners can start their day with “Bo Janssen In the Morning with Jessie Aamodt.” In his station biography, Janssen, a Minnesota State Moorhead graduate, states he has “spent zillions of hours behind the mic in the Red River Valley.” He also notes that he “is also a former astronaut, part-time Calvin Klein underwear model, and frequent pathological liar.” Aamodt and her family are Red River Valley lifers and radio “is a perfect fit for the girl whose teachers wrote ‘talks too much’ on every school report card.

Jay is the man for weekday afternoons, and it’s always greatest hits music, including weekend shows featuring Casey Kasem, Scott Shannon, Gary Bryan and Kid Kelly.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
