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.

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

Didier Campaign Signs Mysteriously Show Up Missing

With two weeks to go until Election Day, political campaigns across the valley and the state are ratcheting up for a final push toward the finish line. Radio and television advertising is being inundated with messages both pro and con on specific issues and candidates. As the gloves come off in certain camps, the mudslinging begins to rear its head and political chicanery often overshadows the real issues at hand.

Evidence of this was reported today by the Clint Didier for Congress campaign when  organizers of the Republican's bid for Congress realized that numerous yard signs had been removed just days after being posted.
