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

Todd’s Earth Day Miracle

Since it's Earth Day and all, I figured it was time to clean out the ol' KATS broom closet -- you know, where we jam-pack four years of plastic bags thinking someday we'll get around to sorting them out and maybe recycling them.

It's

All-Time Manager Meltdowns [NSFW]

Former Seattle Mariners pitching coach and current Reds field manager Bryan Price was the latest to add his name to a long list of baseball heads to have a profanity-laden public meltdown caught on tape by reporters.

While he was prolific in his use of the "F" word (77 times in under six minutes) it wasn't as bad (good?) as some others in past years.
