Rob was born and raised in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, growing up in Minnesota Vikings and Twins territory – and yes, he is Norwegian (ya, you betcha). At the age of 10, Rob moved to Grand Forks, North Dakota and got his first taste of radio. Rob would ride his bike to radio station KNOX a couple of miles out of town to sit and watch the DJs in hopes they would let him say hi to his friends.
His radio career started in Williston, North Dakota in 1987 before moves within the state to Minot, Wahpeton and Fargo over the next five years.
After taking a vacation to visit his parents in Oregon in the summer of 1994, Rob, his wife, Jamie, and kids, Sami and Cody, decided to make the move to the Pacific Northwest. Klamath Falls became home to the Siems family.
Rob has been on the airwaves of KLAD since December 1994. He loves being part of the Klamath Basin and supporting the Basin’s organizations: The United Way, The Klamath County Chamber of Commerce, CASA, The Klamath-Lake Counties Food Bank and more.
What can be said except Rob enjoys golfing, bowling, hunting and doing anything with his family. He loves spending time with his family including the newest edition to the Siems family, his grandson.
Why is the Klamath Basin so fortunate to have a radio disc jockey, who is so charming and delightful, like Cory Edmondson? To answer that, you must know that Cory Edmondson is too good for John Day radio but too bad for Eugene radio. Like many residents in the Klamath Basin, the rest of the society doesn’t really need radio disc jockeys. Disc Jockeys could be in the same category as Justin Beiber, the Kardashian Sisters, and reality TV. Cory Edmondson agrees with those statements.
When Edmondson arrives at the station, he pours a warm cup of coffee. Then he pours the cup of scalding hot coffee over his head. On occasion, Cory enjoys smoking a fine cigar. You could say that Cory is very concerned with his diet and nutrition. Many listeners have concerns about Cory’s age and his ability to “keep up” with trending country music. Cory knows radio isn’t a mental game. It’s all physical. Cory has a great body for radio.
Cory has been to college and received degrees. Therefore, he isn’t some radio low-life drifter. He would like to think everybody enjoys listening to him. However, there’s always those occasional weirdos who don’t like him. But give him a chance. He’s charming and delightful.
Ryan is a Montanan. Yes, that means from Montana, where “pickup toppers” go over truck beds and you put your insurance and registration cards in the “jockey box.”
As a junior varsity basketball player, Ryan was invited to sit in on a broadcast of his high school’s varsity game and he’s been in radio play-by-play ever since. After his high school graduation ceremony, which featured his entire class of 20 fellow students, he left 1150 KSEN in Shelby, Montana for Ashland, Oregon and Southern Oregon University. However, slight miscalculations led to Ryan realizing SOU didn’t offer a degree program he actually wanted to do. So he packed his bags and moved to Eugene – the University of Oregon, that is.
During college, Ryan commuted to call sports in Grants Pass before later broadcasting for KUGN radio in Eugene, all while doing state championships play-by-play for the OSAA Radio Network. Since graduating, he’s been the play-by-play voice for games of the Oregon Ducks, Northwest Christian University, Lewis & Clark College and Portland LumberJax.
In 2011, Basin Mediactive asked Ryan to start a sports radio station in Klamath Falls and 960 the Sports Legend was born. He hosts most editions of Goofing Around at Lunch, the Basin’s live, local sportstalk show weekdays at noon and is the voice of the Klamath Union Pelicans. Outside of radio, Ryan watches a lot of sports, plays golf, poorly, and enjoys his wife’s cooking. He lives in Klamath Falls with his family and prefers ambers and stouts to IPAs.
Daniela wanted to be a DJ ever since she was 9 years old living in Santa Cruz, California. She would call the DJs at KDON and KMBY 24/7 to bug them to play “Kung Fu Fighting” until they’d shut off the phone lines.
Most of her career was spent on-the-air in Sacramento starting with legendary rock station KZAP, where they let her do the “Amateur Hour” as a 17-year-old on a Sunday night show. After running the board at the first country station she ever worked for – 104.3 K-Bear – the station sold and changed format from country to jazz. Daniela’s new boss named her Kari Summers and she went on the air for 104.3 The Breeze, whose music she knew absolutely nothing about. Plus, her boss wanted her to sound all sexy, and yeah…it was weird. Then Daniela worked for Y92, KFBK, COOL 101.1, KSTE and the owners there for almost 10 years.
She’s also had short stints at the Mighty 590 K-Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe and Buck Owens Broadcasting’s KUZZ in Bakersfield. She’s gone by all kinds of fake radio names too: Roxy Thunder, Kari Summers, D Daniels, Trixie Driver and Brooke Davis, sometimes having to use three at a time because at times she’d be on six different stations an hour in the same city. Even though she’s been mostly a DJ, she love news and finds that kind of work to be the most captivating.
