Jeff  Edwards


I was born and raised in the suburbs of Kansas City, explaining my allegiance/ obsession to that area’s sports teams. You’ll find me proudly supporting my Chiefs, Royals and Jayhawks!

Other interests include the occasional game of golf and I’ll accept any challenge when shooting pool. I enjoy swimming and, believe it or not, I do find shopping to be a nice escape from the walls of work.

I moved to Chicago when I was entering high school and, upon graduating,  enrolled in a Chicago-area broadcasting school. My boyhood radio idol turned out to be my instructor and I spent many hours learning the tricks of the trade at a young age. The hands-on experience answering phones and witnessing how a large city radio station looks and sounds proved invaluable.

After a brief stint in a small town in Nebraska, I made my way to Tennessee. This is where I gained on-air experience, as well as news gathering, reporting, programming, commercial script writing and taking out the trash! I settled into a long career in Middle Tennessee. The close proximity to Nashville gave me a strong base for my country music roots. While in Tennessee, I was able to weekly make the trip to Nashville during football season to be the host of college football scoreboard shows for Vanderbilt, Oklahoma and I spent the most time, 11 seasons, hosting the Penn State Nittany Lion Scoreboard Show.

In 2009, I came to Yuma to become an on-air personality and Operations Manager for El Dorado Broadcasters three Yuma-based radio stations. “I wouldn’t trade any day of experience in my career because it all proved invaluable. I am so glad, however, that my travels have brought me to Yuma. This is a terrific community in a beautiful part of the country. I am very fortunate to be here.”

I have a son in Florida and a granddaughter in Tennessee.


MistyHere’s a little about me…

I was born and raised in Salmon, Idaho. My family has been in the outfitter and guide business for generations, so I spent my younger years fishing and white water rafting. I LOVE to fish and go to Alaska every chance I get. My family has a lodge there and it’s the best fishing in the world!! I went to college in Bozeman, MT for cinematography and media arts but, life got in the way, so I  got into the music scene. I played in some bands and traveled around the world.

I found myself back in Salmon some years later where I met my husband Kenny. He is in the  heavy industrial construction industry. We moved all over the west for 10 years. I spent a while here in Yuma while Kenny was on a job in San Francisco, and fell in love with YUMA. I began working for the YMCA.  But, soon I had to move again.

Finally, we decided no more moving ! I wanted to come back to Yuma so I did. I went back to work for the YMCA. Kenny now works around the country and gets home when he can. We have 2 girls Hailey, and Makyla, The girls and I have a great time 4 wheeling, swimming and hanging out together.

I’ve met so many people that are so friendly. The people here in Yuma are the best.  I love getting out and rubbing shoulders with ya all.
