ABOUT KELLY KLAAS:
At just about the dawn of civilization back in 1969, at the age of 16, Kelly Klaas started his radio career in his hometown of Twin Falls, Idaho. And he has been intimately involved in broadcasting ever since.
His first love has always been news and opinion and his time on Top Story has been the highlight of his long career. But, he has experienced nearly all aspects of the industry including sales, engineering, announcing, and producing commercials. But expressing his opinion and inviting others to express theirs has always been the catalyst the drives him.
And if interacting with his vast listening audience each day wasn’t enough, he then enjoys going home and talking on his “ham radio” to people all over the world until the wee hours of the night. He also enjoys woodworking in his well equipped wood shop and shooting his handguns in his back yard shooting range.
Kelly has been married to his wife, Connie, a school teacher, for over 30 years and has three children and a host of grandchildren. He is a lifelong resident of the Magic Valley and is always anxious to promote his hometown whenever the opportunity arises.
