Mike Ryan Lite Rock 99.9

Program Director/Afternoons Monday-Friday 3pm-7pm

Hastings, MN is where Mike Ryan said his first words as a baby and later on the radio! At 16, Mike started his radio career at KDWA, a local AM day timer. 2012 marked his 30th year in radio and after stops all over the Midwest including Willmar where he worked with someone you all know, Ron Linder. Other stops include Hutchinson, Duluth, Sioux Falls, SD, Spencer IA, Prescott AZ and Oshkosh WI.

Mike joined Leighton Broadcasting as the Program Director and afternoon host of Lite Rock 99.9 in February. He is looking forward to getting involved in the community. He has been involved in several community theaters, and has sat on boards of various organizations in other cities, and hopes to do the same in the St. Cloud area.

Being an avid Vikings fan, it was very difficult for Mike to live in Packerland, and even though he often received dirty looks, he let his purple pride show proudly. Besides football, he enjoys baseball and is looking forward to seeing his first Twin's game at Target Field.

Spring and summer time means playing golf, biking, gardening and spending as much time outside as possible. TV favorites include American Idol, Criminal Minds and he said not to tell anyone but Downton Abbey too.
