An avid indoorsman, his hobbies include music, movies, getting up for a soda, and enjoying air conditioning. He is an infomaniac who loves to learn and experience new things.

Liza Raley is half of the duo “Mike & Liza In The Morning” on KLCE. She has lived in East Idaho since 1998 and has raised her family here.

Her favorite artists are Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, CCR, The Eagles, Jackson Browne … forget it. The list is too long. Just listen to Cannonball 101 and you’ll know what’s in Liza’s playlist. Pluse, she starts almost every conversation with “I was listening to a podcast … ” because her greatest passion is people who are passionate about things.
