Todd E. Lyons, Esq.

Todd E. Lyons esq.

My name is Todd E. Lyons.

On the radio, you know know me as “Todd E. Lyons, Esquire.”

I have shared the airwaves in the mornings (6A-10A) with you for the last 14+ years.
It feels much longer than that.

Now, more about my favorite topic…  me.

I was born in Seattle, Washington, 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 seven.  I spent my formative years in the West Valley of Yakima area, attending 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!

In summary, it is my belief that I will probably take my last breath whilst on the air at 94.5 KATS.

Schedule

M-F 6:00 am - 10:00 am

Todd E. Lyons, Esquire Blog: ‘Throwback Thursday’

I love the concept of “Throwback Thursday” and seeing all of the vintage pics on social media sites.
Personally, I think it says a lot about a person who is willing to share, in many cases, photos of themselves that they might otherwise consider embarrassing. It’s especially interesting when it’s of a person that one hasn’t necessarily known their entire life.

“Hail To the King” – A7X Song Should Be Theme of Mariners Fans in the “King’s Court”

Recently, MLB Network did a piece on Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez's fans who come to Safeco Field en masse each time he pitches at home.

The special section of seats is known as the "King's Court," playing off of Hernandez's nickname "The King" (a moniker he has had since before even breaking into the major leagues.)
