A favorite personality for many Minnesota sports radio fans is returning to the Twin Cities.
Henry Lake has spent the last five years as a full-time midday host at AM 610 Sports Radio radio in Kansas City, having previously worked for KFAN FM 100.3 in the Twin Cities where he was known as one of the station's top basketball hosts.
Many listeners remember Lake from his days as a co-host on the "Sludge & Lake" show, which aired weeknights and featured competitive sports banter between Lake and Cory Cove, who has since dropped the "Sludge" nickname on his rise to become the lead host of the ultra successful Power Trip Morning Show.
In addition to being on the radio in the Twin Cities, Lake was also heavily involved in community work with Minneapolis schools and youth programs, and he plans on returning to those roles once he returns.
"I'm so excited to get back to the city that I love," Lake wrote in a thank you message to Kansas City. "And I want to do a lot of community work in a time now where there is so much work to do.
"I look forward to connecting with various different organizations and charities. I can't wait to engage in positive conversations to make our community better, even if it involves difficult topics many don't want to discuss."
It's not yet clear what Lake's new role at KFAN will be, but his reputation as a knowledgable basketball host would fit the station well at a time when the Timberwolves are on the rise (we think?) and the men's Final Four is coming to U.S. Bank Stadium next April.
