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).
bet a lot of you are tired of the debate over guns. The President doesn't care. He’s not one to waste a good crisis to push
his jihad against American Second Amendment rights. Over the weekend, the story broke that the
President plans to have a new gun law for the whole country signed into law in
just three weeks. And it’s a crazy one.
The Congressional budget office says that this new plan adds about 300 billion dollars in new spending over the next ten years. And the President has promised…cross his heart…to cut spending sometime in the next few months or years. Of course, he promised four years ago to cut the deficit in half. Back then it was a trillion dollars a year. It’s still a trillion dollars. Social security and Medicare are still insolvent. And the President has given raises out to federal employees by executive order. Hollywood gets new bigger tax breaks. So does NASCAR. And Rum from Puerto Rico. And two wheeled electric vehicles. And Asparagus farmers.
Oh, and by the way...When the President claims he didn't raise your taxes…check your January 15th paycheck. Social security taxes on all workers go up two percent…so if your family has income of 50-thousand a year, that’s a thousand in higher taxes. If his lips move…he’s lying.
