I recently had the opportunity to interview Minnesota-born Rae from America’s Next Top Model – Le Petit Cycle 13.  She was even more beautiful in person as she is on the show.  Check back soon for video of the interview.

Softball 360 - Natalie Kane interview with Denny Crine

We recently shot an episode of Softball 360 in my hometown of Minneapolis, MN.  The show travels to 13 different major leauge ballparks in 13 different cities from May to September.  It’s a hectic travel schedule, so I was thrilled to have shot an episode in my own backyard at the Minneapolis Metrodome.

Here are some photos from the shoot (and also my run-in with TC, the MN Twins mascot!).

Where Fall Meets Fashion

September 16, 2009

Fall’s almost here, and so is all the new fashion.  I recently attended the W Hotel’s “Where Fall Meets Fashion” show featuring local designers and models.  I’m most excited about the Parisian-inspired designs and the leather bomber jacket.  I already ran out and got one of my own!

Here are a few photos from the show.

The premier of 21 Cards is FINALLY here.  I had a blast co-hosting the show along with Mike Rylander and cannot wait to see the results this Saturday.   A lot of people worked on this project, and I am so thankful that I got to be a part of it.

The show makes its debut on the CW Twin Cities Saturday, September 12 at 6 p.m. and runs for 13 weeks.  Lots of exciting stuff happened, so don’t miss a single episode!

CW – Behind the Scenes

September 1, 2009

My co-host Mike Rylander and I got the bright idea to use fog during our promo for The Vampire Diaries premier that will be airing on the CW Twin Cities.  As you can see, we got a little carried away with the fog machine, but it certainly made for a fun shoot!

21 Cards – That’s a Wrap!

21 Cards 1

We finally wrapped what was one of the most fun, yet challenging projects I’ve ever worked on – the new, locally produced game show 21 Cards.  Mike Rylander and I co-hosted the show from the Showroom at Mystic Lake.  Dozens of people worked countless hours to put together this show.  The entire experience was INCREDIBLE.  I’m so excited to see the show!  Here are some raw and behind-the-scenes photos from the shoots.


The 13-episode season airs Saturdays at 6 p.m. on the CW Twin Cities starting September 12.

New Fall Look

August 18, 2009

Fall is almost here, so I decided I needed a new look.  While I was out in California, I hit up my former hair stylist who relocated to Los Angeles a few years ago.  He and I decided I could use some bangs.  Check it out!


The CW Twin Cities Beat

August 17, 2009

Ever wanted to try sailing?  The CW Twin Cities Crew teams up with the Star Tribune for a look at what’s going on around town in a segment called “The Beat.”  This week’s feature: sailing.

Check out my YouTube page for past editions of the CW Twin Cities Beat, which airs Thursdays on the CW Twin Cities at 10:30 p.m.

Well, not exactly. But if you buy one, a dollar or more from each Dairy Queen Blizzard purchased on August 13 goes to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Their mission is to generate funs and awareness to benefit the more than 170 hospitals/foundations and the children they serve.

Like we needed a reason to eat blizzards. Let’s be honest.  🙂

See you at DQ! (I’ll be the one with an Oreo Blizzard.)
