Welcome to the brand new year!

We're back at it this morning on WMT's Mid Morning Show as we chat with Kaj O'Mara to find out when this cold weather finally gives us a break! He'll also join us after 10am this morning to talk about the top weather stories of 2017.

Before that, we'll chat with Gary Dolphin after a big bowl win in the Pinstripe Bowl plus we'll chat women's basketball as the Iowa Women crack the Top 20.

We'll end the show with an encore of our visit with Chris Earl from KCRG talking about the top stories of 2017.

All this PLUS the latest on traffic, weather, local, and national news.

See you at 9am!
