Lars got his start in radio at age 16 spinning records (remember 45s?) and reading news, sports and weather (twice an hour) on KTIL (The Mighty 1590) from a little cinderblock building on the edge of a cow pasture in Tillamook, Oregon (75 miles West of Portland, Oregon).
36 years later, he’s only moved 75 miles east to Portland and light years to “the Right”. Emmy and Peabody award winner Lars Larson brings nearly four decades of experience as a radio and television journalist to the microphone for six hours of the best talk radio in America. Six hours of daily prep keep The Lars Larson Show on top of the news and top-of-mind for listeners across the country.
Along the way, Lars has worked for more than a dozen radio stations and five television stations. Today, Lars holds down the fort from 12pm – 4pm on Radio Northwest flagship FM NEWS 101 KXL. His local talk show airs on seventeen stations in the Pacific Northwest (and earns him the biggest local talk radio audience in the region).

BusinessWeek magazine reports that Fiat plans to announce production of Jeep and Chrysler models in Italy to bail out its failing factories there. And get this FIAT PLANS TO EXPORT THOSE CARS TO AMERICA.
So when Barack Obama says he saved the American Car industry…is this what he meant? In June of '09, the government orders 800 Chrysler dealerships, including Portland’s Timberline, closed…80,000 Americans lose their jobs because that’s the only way Fix-It-Again-Tony would take over Jeep/Dodge/Chrysler…and they got it for a bargain.
They didn't pay a single Lira for it.
Fiat’s 19 billion short of its sales goals and its plants are running below 50-percent capacity so this offers the company a way to fix some of its problems…and more auto workers will get pink slips here.
But I’m sure the united auto workers will still tell its workers to cast a ballot for Barry, so our Marxist redistributionist keeps his job.
Four Americans dead, the President lies and blames it on a videotape and then the truth starts leaking out. Last week we learned that the White House had a real time video feed of the attack, knew what it was that night. We know that military and CIA assets in the region offered to help and were told to stand down. The father of the former Navy Seal who defied those orders, ran to help and died trying, called my show demanding that the President tell him what happed to his murdered son.
The President, out on the campaign trail, has been flatly refusing to answer questions on the matter even from those chosen few given an interview. And now there’s word that at least one top Pentagon General was fired for trying to send a rapid reaction team in reply to the cries for help the white house was ignoring.
And why would Obama have done that? Think Black Hawk down two. Letting four Americans die beat killing his re-election campaign.
And now he has Watergate with a body count...
Benghazi. What do we know today about the murders of four Americans and the first assassination of an ambassador in thirty years. We know that there were CIA assets on the ground that could have helped. We know that Tyrone Woods, whose father called this show earlier this week, disobeyed orders and ran a mile to help…and died. We know that the President, and secretary of state Clinton, and ambassador Susan Rice, and Presidential spokesman Jay Carney lied. They lied about a videotape. They lied that it was an out of control mob of protesters. They lied by omission that it was not terrorism. And today we know there was help an hour away. That CIA operatives in the area were ordered to stand down. That lasers had been trained on the Islamic militants that could have guided in an attack by Americans…and they were not used. And the President is silent. He won’t answer the key questions…and he’s urging Americans to vote early. Why? Because he knows that if they get to hear what’s coming out now…and in the next ten days…they’ll decide they can’t vote for a commander in chief who wont command.
Today, Megyn Kelly invited me on her show to talk about the
call I received from Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, the former Navy
SEAL who gave his life protecting our Ambassador in Benghazi.
I have a few
questions for the president. I have the same questions that my
audience had today. When did the President know that our consulate was under
attack? Who else was watching? We now know there was help available just an
hour away that wasn’t called in. Who made that decision?
The President needs to answer for the mistakes that cost the lives of four Americans. Charles Woods and the families of Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Ambassador Chris Stevens deserve answers.
Yesterday, I got a call out of the blue from the father of one of the Americans who was murdered in Benghazi, Libya.
Charles Woods explained that he never calls talk shows, but was upset over news he had heard and just decided to call me.
He talked about his son, Tyrone Woods, who was killed along with Ambassador Chris Stevens and two other Americans who were trying to save the life of the Ambassador.
After 37 years, there are still days that this business takes your breath away.
So the president disparaged Romney’s point that we’re headed for a tiny Navy, that we've thrown our allies like Israel and Poland under the bus, and have been far t
oo accommodating to rivals like China, Russia, Iran and Muslim radicals. Romney played it cool and looked Presidential. Romney’s smart enough to agree with the President on policies he’s right on. Obama said he didn't come up with sequestration defense cuts…and that’s not true. The President denied he wanted to leave troops in Iraq when in fact he assigned Loony Veep Biden to get it done…and he couldn't.
Obama says he’ll deny Iran a nuke but Iran is now four years closer to the bomb. And the President claims Romney would have denied help to Detroit in the auto company mess but in fact Romney wanted government loan guarantees to the auto companies. And the President’s goofy comment that Romney should know we don’t use bayonets anymore…every marine can tell you he gets a bayonet with his rifle and he knows how to use it.
A real commander in chief would know that, if we had one.
