Chris Malone

Quite possibly the best voice you will hear all day, that’s because when you hear Chris Malone weekdays from 3pm to 7pm, your workday should be about done.  Chris keeps your favorite music going strong as you head down the home stretch.  Keep 98.5 KTK with you in the car, as hitting the rush hour adds stress; Chris keeps you cool with an hour of commercial-free music starting just before 5pm!

College Athlete Shortens Career To Save A Life

I'm back from a short vacation to Panama City and the weather was wonderful.  I am nursing my sunburned head and it's my own fault for spraying sunblock on every part of my body...except my head!

I came across this story and it really bolstered by faith in humanity.  Cameron Lyle, a Division I college athlete at The University of New Hampshire is doing something wonderful to help a complete stranger, donating his bone marrow so a person can live.  What makes this so special in my eyes is that making this bone marrow donation, Lyle will have to shorten his sporting career at UH.

Lyle had his mouth swabbed to join a bone marrow registry two years ago in the cafeteria at school. He didn't think any more of it until a few months ago when he got a phone call that he might be a match. He took more tests and discovered a month later that he was a perfect match. "When they first told me, I was like, 'OK, cool. I'm definitely going to do it,'" Lyle said. "After that I kind of went to tell my coach and then I realized slowly that my season was over."

 The man who needs his help is a 28-year-old suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Lyle was told that the man only has six months to live without the transplant. Lyle's match is a one in five million chance for a non-family match.

"It was kind of a no-brainer for a decent human," Lyle said. "I couldn't imagine just waiting. He could have been waiting for years for a match. I'd hope that someone would donate to me if I needed it."
