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.

Todd’s Take: Happy Father’s Day to My Dad, Don Lyons

My dad's not big on celebrating Father's Day or even his own birthday (which was just about three weeks ago), but since he just turned 71 and, as he says, has more days behind him than ahead, I thought I'd at least give him some love on this here ol' website!
