Rik Mikals

I’ve been up and down the radio dial as the famous "WKRP in Cincinnati" line goes. I started right out of high school in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston, Wash at KCLK-FM, a country station, and from there moved all over Idaho, Montana, California and Washington state at various radio stations. I worked on KMPS-FM in Seattle in the late 1990s and moved to Yakima in 1998 as program director of 107-3 KFFM. I moved again and again (because I can't seem to keep a job) until I was in Bakersfield, California,and then Tri-Cities, and then back to Yakima, and again to Tri-Cities as morning show host and brand manager of 98.3 The Key. I bought a farm in Prosser a few years back with my wife Megan and we sold it last year and we now live in Kennewick. We have three great dogs named Phoebe, Barkley and Roxy. My son is an aspiring musician and plays, performs and writes original music. I also have a stepson named Kyran who is just starting high school. I’m known for having a never-ending knowledge of pop culture and easily get addicted to TV reality shows. I like "Star Trek," Mustangs (the car) and '80s music which is the era I seem to be stuck in. I’m also a huge comic book fan, having a comic collection easily totaling more than 6,000 comics with some rare comic books thrown in for good measure.

Fire crews were busy overnight dousing hot spots in a fire that started Sunday afternoon near Harlan Landing in Selah.

At last check the fire was 50 percent contained.

Investigators say the fire started at about 1:00 p.m. Sunday near a homeless camp north of the landing and spread up the hill and towards Selah. Residents living on fourth, fifth and seventh streets in Selah were told to be ready to evacuate Sunday afternoon after the fire burned near their homes but the evacuation orders have been lifted.

Did Your Name Make It On A Coca-Cola Bottle This Summer?

I know the name "Rick" has made it on a Coca-Cola bottle before but I'm not so sure we'll ever see a "Rik" on a bottle. I'm totally bummed about that.

It's almost summer and Coca-Cola has started putting names on the side of Coca-Cola bottles again.

I know I didn't make it on a bottle but did you? I've got an easy way for you to check.

Insane Inflatables 5 K Brings The Fun For Families [VIDEO]

It was a beautiful day for Insane Inflatables at the Benton County Fairgrounds In Kennewick, Washington. I grabbed some snap shots and some video and even had a chance to go the top of the start and announce a wave and ended up getting knocked over.

At the top of the inflatable, it was like being on a waterbed (if you remember those) to keep my balance was tough but fun.
