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.

A Teal Pumpkin On Your Porch Could Save A Life In Yakima

Halloween is coming quickly and I've recently become aware of a special project that will result in all kids enjoying Halloween safely.

I was unaware that kids with food allergies are usually shut out of treats due to the peanuts, nuts and sugars that go into most Halloween candy.

The good news is that there is a way to help parents and kids identify which homes have safe options for kids with food allergies -- and you can help spearhead this wonderful cause this year.

“Green Arrow” Artist To Appear At Yakima Comic-Con [VIDEO]

It's the second year of Yakima's Central City Comic-Con and every year it grows. I'm excited this year as legendary "Green Arrow" artist Mike Grell will be in Yakima.

I first discovered Mike's work in 1978 as a blossoming comic book lover at the tender age of eight. Mike was already successful by the time I discovered his artwork but it didn't take away from my enthusiasm of his art.

An Unsolicited Virtual Tour Of Yakima’s 929 The Bull Radio Station [VIDEO]

I was at KFC for lunch today and the front service gal asked me "what time do you get started in the morning"? I replied that I go on air at 5:30 am which seemed to surprise her and as I sat down to eat my lunch, I noticed a new video on my cell phone.

I didn't take a new video but there it was. I closely inspected it and discovered that my phone was recording my walk to the studio as I start my daily shift and the video follows me until I start my show.

The video is crazy looking as it shows perfectly how I start my day and filmed it perfectly without my knowledge.
