Lars Larson

Lars Larson got his start in radio at age 16 spinning records (remember 45s?) and reading news, sports and weather twice an hour from a little cinderblock building on the edge of a cow pasture in Tillamook, Oregon. Twenty-seven years later, he's only moved 75 miles to the east (Portland)...and light years to "the Right."

Along the way, Lars has worked for radio stations in Eugene, Spokane and currently NewsRadio 750 KXL in Portland, where he double dares station management to pry him loose. Despite friends who tell him he "has a face made for radio" Lars has worked for three television stations: KVAL in Eugene, KPTV, and KOIN in Portland.

Much to his wife Tina's delight, Lars has picked up several dozen awards, including a couple of television Emmy's and a Peabody.  Lars and Tina live in a little house, built in 1915, floating on logs in the Columbia River. Last year, they lived for 8 months on their 28 foot power boat while the house was being remodeled (and a second story added).

Lars Larson airs weeknights from 10:00 PM until 1:00 AM, Monday through Friday on WGRV.
