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.
