Todd Lyons

My name is Todd E. Lyons. On the radio you probably know me as “Todd E. Lyons, Esquire.” Every morning, hundreds of women wake up with me. I have shared the airwaves in the mornings (6 to 9) with you since 1998, and look forward to it every day. I was born in Seattle, 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 7. I spent my formative years in the West Valley of Yakima, indoctrinated in 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! If you ever see me stumbling about this great valley of ours, please give me a shout. I would love to talk with you and find out what you think about 94.5 KATS!

With that said, we would like to know if you, your friends and family or other Seahawks fans who already have game tickets would be interested in putting together a 'Rooter Bus' for the eight regular-season home games.

Joe Montana Thinks Seahawks Are ‘Capable’ of Becoming Next NFL Dynasty

While us fans in the Pacific Northwest are certainly biased about the prospects of the Seattle Seahawks becoming a dynasty for years to come, that thought becomes more legitimate when confirmed by a Hall of Fame quarterback who played for one of the league's greatest dynasties, former San Francisco 49er Joe Montana.
