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.

Downtown Summer Nights Alumni The Olson Brothers Debut New Song [VIDEO]

We've had Luke and Issac Olson at Downtown Summer Nights the last few years and they always put on a great show. I've become a big fan of the duo and always get excited when they release new music.

They've been working the Northwest concert circuit the last few years and won a songwriting contest in 2013. I think they'll break soon and 929 The Bull will soon be able to say we knew them when.

Our Tribute To The Fallen Officers In Dallas [VIDEO]

The shootings in Dallas last night leave a constant reminder that hate and violence are still rampant in our country. It is sad to see a peaceful protest become a vehicle in which terror rains down on innocent people. We sadly lost five police officers last night and lives were crushed and chained. The families that bare the tragedy will possibly never recover and think of the children that are left behind.

The Top 5 Things I Miss About My Fathers [PHOTOS]

I was one of those kids that you might think had a rough childhood. I was in foster care when I was 5 and I was adopted at 12. I can't lie and say there weren't tough times, but age and time have given me perspective, and I've come to realize that something bad always comes with something good...

Relay For Life Of Yakima Raises Big Dollars Despite Weather [VIDEO]

Relay for Life, spearheaded by the American Cancer Society, managed to raise some big dollars over the weekend even with weather being less than satisfactory. I was doing the announcements late Saturday at Franklin Middle School and the sun and clouds came and went making for a roller coaster day of highs and lows. It speaks to the tenacity of the walkers on the track as they didn't allow the weather to hinder their enthusiasm and devotion to walking and raising money for the American Cancer Society.
