Rik Mikals

I’ve been up and down the radio dial as the famous "WKRP" line goes. I started right out of high school in 1988 in my hometown of Clarkston, Wash., at KCLK – a country station -- and from there moved all over Idaho, Montana, California and Washington state at various radio stations. I was on KMPS in Seattle in the 1990s and moved to Yakima in 1998 as program director of KFFM. I moved again and again until I was in Bakersfield, Calif,, and then Tri-Cities, and then back to Yakima, and again to Tri-Cities and more! I bought a farm in Prosser a few years back with my wife Megan, and 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. I’m known for having a never-ending knowledge of pop culture and easily get addicted to TV reality shows. I love "Star Trek," Mustangs (the car) and '80s music. I’m a huge comic book fan, having a comic collection easily totaling more than 6,000 comics.

Taylor Swift Hears Her Song For The First Time On The Radio (VIDEO)

Taylor Swift is one of the biggest stars on the planet so you'd think she's heard her songs a million times on the radio but that's not always the case. It turns out that sometimes that she's so busy that she misses her song on the radio.

The cool thing is that she still gets giddy like a kid in the candy store when she hears her song on the radio, as a new video has surfaced of her enjoying her latest hit foe the first time.

A Salute To The Strongest Woman I’ve Ever Known [PHOTOS]

Hundreds of thousands of brave women marched in Eastern Washington and all around the nation in solidarity during Saturday's Women's March. I grew up in a generation long past the days of the women's movement, so it astonishes me that after all these years we still have to have these kinds of demonstrations.

I was lucky growing up. I had the strongest female role model a boy could've had. She was amazing and I owe her a lifetime of gratitude.

Take A Scenic Drive Down One Of Washington’s Windiest Grades [VIDEO]

I grew up in the Lewiston/Clarkston Valley, but for six years of my life I was a foster kid and lived at the confluence of the Grand Ronde River on the border of the Washington/Oregon border. I lived right at the bottom of the Rattlesnake Grade on the Washington side and on the other side was the Buford Grade that proceeded to Oregon.

I had to be bused to school each day to Asotin, WA as is our state law. It was 62 miles round trip and it wasn’t a straight line to school.  I had to travel up the Asotin Grade on Highway 129, past Anatone and further past Field’s Spring State Park.

The portion of the daily bus ride that is probably the scariest during winter is the Rattlesnake Grade.  The American Motorcycle Association designated the grade as one of the top 15 motorcycle rides in America and the winding grade definitely lives up to its name, but think about if you are an 8-yr old kid traveling that daily and running into snow.
