Tim Lyon

Life is funny. I started out my radio career, disc-jockeying 70s and 80s hits. I transitioned into news and for the last dozen years, I've been working in digital media. So when the opportunity came up to play the music I love, I jumped at the chance. Because the music on 96.7 The River is quite simply the soundtrack to my life (and probably yours, too). Technically, I'm the Digital Managing Editor for Townsquare Media St. Cloud. The chief web dude, if you will. But in this little space of the world, I'm an announcer again, playing the music I love. Full circle. Life is funny.
