Every week, Outdoor News Radio explores timely outdoors topics emerging from Minnesota, the Upper Midwest, and around the country. For one hour, host Rob Drieslein, managing editor and president of Outdoor News, Inc., interviews a slate of natural resource experts, conservation advocates, and outdoors scribes. Along with regular co-host Tim Lesmeister, expect raucous and sometimes irreverent banter about hunting and fishing, shooting sports, wild game cooking, and nature. Among the program’s many guests, get news updates from editors Tim Spielman, Dean Bortz, and Brian Peterson. Hear fishing tips from Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame legendary angler Terry Tuma, hunting tactics from Tony Peterson, and nongame notes and stories from “Birdchick” Sharon Stiteler and Backyard and Beyond columnist Stan Tekiela.

Listeners can tune into the Outdoor News Radio weekly talk show hosted by Rob Drieslein on these stations.
