Henry Lake leaves KFAN for nightly show at WCCO

His new show will debut in March.

WCCO Radio didn't wait long to announce plans to replace the 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. radio show previously filled by Al Malmberg, who was let go by the Twin Cities radio station earlier this month. 

It was announced Tuesday that Henry Lake, a longtime sports talk voice at FM 100.3 KFAN, will be taking over Malmberg's time slot on "The Good Neighbor." 

"When I think about some of the things that are going on with WCCO right now, the recent return of the Minnesota Twins, the Minnesota Timberwolves, a relatively young team that I feel like is still on the rising just coming off a playoff berth last year. There's a lot of things about being a part of an iconic station like WCCO that I'm really, really excited about," said Lake. 

His show, called "Lake Night," will debut Monday, March 11. 

In September, Lake returned to the Twin Cities and KFAN as a part-time host and contributor after spending five years in Kansas City as a midday sports talk show host. Prior to that, he had his first stint with KFAN. 

"The introduction of a new late-night show allows for our station to better serve our listeners as they are winding down their days,” said Shannon Knoepke, Senior Vice President and Market Manager of Entercom Minneapolis.

Knoepke added that Lake will provide "fresh perspective on the daily events and topics that matter most." 

"In the business of radio, there's a lot of thoughts and opinions that get thrown out there and a lot of times those opinions you hear again and again again," said Lake. "I hope that I'm bringing something fresh and something unique."
