Mornings 6 to 10
Tim Howard
Tim HowardHi, my name is Tim Howard. My official title at Lake Country 95.9 KCKL is Program/News Director. I love starting my mornings with the listeners of East Texas. Join me weekdays from 6 AM to 10 AM. I have been back at KCKL since July of 2005. I was bitten by the radio bug at KCKL last century, 88-92, and spent 4 years here cutting my teeth on radio, at the original studios in downtown Malakoff.


I love music, you'll find a wide variety in my collection. (anything from Lecrae to Rascall Flatts to Martina McBride) Providing I can actually find my collection!

Tex Mex is my favorite food.  (But Healthy Yummy Vegetables come in a very close second!)

My favorite sports team is the underdog in March Madness.  (My favorite time of the year!)  I am most proud of Lake Country each December with the M.A.S.H. Toy Drive.  Every Christmas the Lake Country team truly Makes A Smile Happen over and over again because of the best listeners in the world and a team of "elves" at the station who go above and beyond the call of duty for others.

I wanted to be involved in radio since I was 14 years old when I went to a grand opening of a furniture store in Waco, TX. I went through school sharing with family and close friends that one day I would make a career in radio...It's true if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. We serve hard around the Lake Country Radio area, to entertain, inform, and uplift the hearts of the KCKL family.

I am a huge Denzel Washington fan!  (I think he will end up being cast to play me in the blockbuster movie in the story of my life-that's surely in the works right?)

Mighty Mouse is my favorite cartoon character, I mean C'mon "Here I Come to Save the Day!!!" Is there anything better than that? OK Speed Racer, maybe.

One thing you may not know about me...I was actually all state on my 4th grade Tether Ball team, I unfortunately tore an ACL jumping out of a swing so I was unable to go pro, but hey It all worked out.  Please join me Mornings on KCKL...

I grew up being utterly and completely enamored of radio BUT decided to go into nursing upon graduating from high school. The thought of going into radio never even remotely crossed my mind: I grew up never hearing a woman on the air, ever, in any capacity. In nursing school at Colorado State University/Pueblo I heard the new morning person at KILO FM and it was...a woman. And lo, the world suddenly had one less nurse and one more radio person. My parents never quite got over that. My first ever radio job was at a country station in Pueblo as the worst overnight jock in the universe. I have gratefully spent the majority of my almost-30 years in radio working with country music, which possesses the nicest artists and BEST listeners!

Afternoon Drive 2-6pm
Ted Svenson

Tad has been in love with radio since he got his first as a Christmas present as a kid.  He says it's the first (and still the best) portable communication device.  He's fastened radios to his handlebars, strung antanaes through trees, and broken more radios than most people will ever own.  Tad is still single, but hasn't totally given up on finding that special someone.  He usually has 3 radios playing all at once, and is still looking for the best way to attach them to his handlebars.

I became an instant country music fan at the age of 16, when a friend played me a Waylon Jennings album. "Prior to that, I assumed that country was about people who lived a lifestyle completely foreign to me -- that we had nothing in common. Was I ever wrong! Country is about real people with real feelings and experiences similar to what mine were growing up. Now that I'm an adult with my own family, it's truer than ever". When I began working in country music radio and had the opportunity to meet and speak with country stars first hand, I was even more pleasantly surprised by how relatable and friendly they are when not on stage performing. "Plus, I can actually understand the words when they sing. Rock and pop fans can't always say the same. Which may be just as well!"
