KIRO Seattle Adds ''Candy, Mike & Todd Show'' to Afternoons
|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, January 11, 2019|
Bonneville's News/Talk KIRO Seattle adds a new weekday afternoon program to its lineup. "The Candy, Mike and Todd Show," hosted by Candy Harper (pictured), Mike Lewis and Todd Herman, will debut on Monday, January 14 from 3-7pm. Harper most recently served as the station's afternoon producer, while Lewis has worked at KIRO as a reporter and fill-in host since 2016. Herman has been the afternoon host on sister KTTH-AM since 2015 and a fill-in host on KIRO.
"This is an exciting moment in the continuing evolution of KIRO Radio," said VP/Market Manager Dave Pridemore. "We feel that Candy, Mike and Todd will bring a variety of fun, entertaining and diverse perspectives that best represent the communities that KIRO Radio serves."
"We've put together what we feel is a winning team," said KIRO Director of News and Programming Ryan Maguire. "Candy, Mike and Todd are a fun, entertaining and intelligent trio. They will be a perfect complement to the news, traffic and weather elements that KIRO Radio listeners expect every weekday afternoon."
"I can't wait to get started," said Harper. "Mike, Todd and I are three opinionated friends who may disagree on almost everything but love to talk about why. Turns out, people are quite capable of disagreeing on issues and still being decent human beings. This show is going to be unique."
"This is a great opportunity and I'm excited to work with Candy and Todd," added Lewis. "Listeners can expect a show that is authentic, relatable and well-informed. Hopefully, we can provide listeners with something that makes their commute home a little more enjoyable."
"This job is a dream come true for me," admitted Herman. "One of my goals in life is to be a force for bringing people together and to lend a genuine, conservative point of view to major media. I feel this show will truly do that. Candy, Mike, and I view life very differently. If you don't want to live in a bubble, you'll enjoy what the three of us have to say."
