Other Newsmen

As of 2007, John heidt is currently Mischke's local newsman. He has become a staple of the show because of the (often lengthy) chats they will have. Occasionally speed will join in the conversations. It isn't rare for John to come on and never deliver any news because Mischke talked with him for too long.

  • clip - "Every year during the St. Paul Winter Carnival a medallion hunt takes place. This year, it was found in record time -- after only three clues were given out by the local paper.
