Mike Bastinelli

I've been in the Valley since 1988. Grew up in Tacoma, went to high school and college in Oregon. Started my radio career in Raymond, Wash., in 1981, then moved to Texas and Pennsylvania before coming back to my home state. I love the Yakima Valley with its four seasons and lots of sunshine, and I love being a cheerleader for all of the good stuff we have in the valley. I've been married to my beautiful wife Kim for 31 years and I have three amazing daughters -- Brooke, Melissa and Brianne -- and two loyal four-legged sons, Leo and Shadow. In my free time I love to work out or head to the mountains or my favorite winery. At home I love watching my Hawks, Mariners and Huskies or cooking my favorite pasta dish. Oh, by the way I do own a pasta sauce business called "Bastinelli's Best." Shameless plug!
