Elizabeth Ries finally has a dance partner. The "Twin Cities Lives" host will be joined by former KSTP weekend anchor Chris Egert starting April 29. Ries has served with guest hosts ever since John Hanson left the daily talker this past December to serve as program director for a Kansas City sports radio station.

"It's an exciting career move for me and my family and I can't wait to be part of the show," Egert said.

"TCL," which airs from 3-4 p.m. weekdays on KSTP, Ch. 5, celebrated its fifth anniversary this past Friday.
