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

The concept of the 30-second promos is to leave the impression that all of the movers and shakers in the sports world reside in Bristol, Conn., which is the headquarters of ESPN and where Sports Center originates from.

Todd E. Lyons, Esquire Blog: Yakima Little League All-Stars Enjoy Baseball, Rock & Roll and Being Kids

Last night my family and some close friends attended the Yakima Valley Pippins game (Pippins win!) and stuck around post-game for their fantastic fireworks display to conclude the evening.

During the pregame festivities, a group of youngsters got to run onto the field with the starting nine. As it turned out, our seats were right next to theirs once they returned to the stands.

Yakima’s Best Fireworks Display Will Be In Moxee — Again!

There are a few days on the calendar when the little pyromaniac inside all of us gets to scratch the itch to set fire to overpriced, colorful bits of paper and cardboard made in China... without fear of legal reprisal!

Every year, I tell my friends that on the Fourth of July, my neighborhood in Moxee resembles downtown Baghdad, so every year more and more of my friends and family come to my house to celebrate Independence Day to see the insane display

A recent article in Reason magazine, cited a chart that was compiled by the Prison Policy Initiative that clearly shows the United States of America far and away leading the rest of the world in rates of incarceration with 716 citizens per 100,000 locked up.  No. 2 is Cuba (510 per 100,000) followed by Rwanda (492).
