Todd Lyons

My name is Todd E. Lyons. On the radio you probably know me as “Todd E. Lyons, Esquire.” Every morning, hundreds of women wake up with me. I have shared the airwaves in the mornings (6 to 9) with you since 1998, and look forward to it every day. I was born in Seattle, the son of a sharecropper. My family and I moved to the “Fruit Bowl of the Nation” when I was a wee lad of only 7. I spent my formative years in the West Valley of Yakima, indoctrinated in public school. I became keenly familiar with the “special” desk while attending Apple Valley Elementary. The teachers referred to it as the “isolation booth,” but I called it the “special desk.” Most of what I know today, however, can be credited to the “School of Hard Knocks.” I am extremely fortunate to work on the very radio station I grew up listening to. I loved listening to KATS so much when I was younger that I not only was a client, I became an employee! If you ever see me stumbling about this great valley of ours, please give me a shout. I would love to talk with you and find out what you think about 94.5 KATS!

Todd’s Take: Lost Cat Restores My Faith In Humanity

As I returned to my home the other day from picking up my son from baseball practice, I noticed a piece of paper had been attached to the front door of my house. This isn't a terribly uncommon occurrence as we get our fair share of soliciting in my neighborhood. Sometimes it's kids looking to mow the lawn, more often it is an invite to a local church. No matter, I usually approach these postings with the notion that somebody else is saying to me, "Here! YOU throw this away!"

The letter that was affixed above my threshold this time, though, gave me pause and, in a small way, restored my faith in humanity.
