Lars got his start in radio at age 16 spinning records (remember 45s?) and reading news, sports and weather (twice an hour) on KTIL (The Mighty 1590) from a little cinderblock building on the edge of a cow pasture in Tillamook, Oregon (75 miles West of Portland, Oregon).
36 years later, he’s only moved 75 miles east to Portland and light years to “the Right”. Emmy and Peabody award winner Lars Larson brings nearly four decades of experience as a radio and television journalist to the microphone for six hours of the best talk radio in America. Six hours of daily prep keep The Lars Larson Show on top of the news and top-of-mind for listeners across the country.
Along the way, Lars has worked for more than a dozen radio stations and five television stations. Today, Lars holds down the fort from 12pm – 4pm on Radio Northwest flagship FM NEWS 101 KXL. His local talk show airs on seventeen stations in the Pacific Northwest (and earns him the biggest local talk radio audience in the region).
ew-town. First…say a prayer for all of the families in that town…those who’ve lost children and parents…for the staff and the teachers at that school. Ask yourself this…are your kids safe…and does the school your kids go to keep them safe. Are there things that would make them safer. We guard city hall and celebrities and banks and big buildings with armed guards…yet most schools don’t get that kind of protection until the day after something like this happens. Israel used to have Palestinian terrorists attack schools with guns…until they started arming the staff and the teachers. It worked there. But as a society many people recoil at the thought. Let me suggest something to you…if the building you work in is guarded by folks who can stop a killer like the one who did this deed…why isn’t your son or daughter’s school protected as well?
