When Lewis was a kid, he remembers KTVF-TV and KFRB Radio (now KCBF, I suppose) sharing space in the Northward building downtown.

Since then, he has served at KAYY until 1992, then at Cordova’s KLAM-AM, which he and his wife bought in 1994. The two bought both stations in 1997 after they kept KCDV-FM on the air in Cordova.
