KLIX Host Celebrates 60th Birthday


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) A local radio personality is celebrating his 60th birthday.

Kelly Klaas hosts News Tadio 1310 KLIX and has worked in broadcasting for about 40 years.

His co–host Jill Skeem thought it would be very fitting to treat him to lunch at the Twin Falls Senior Center. The no–so secret birthday celebration became a public event with Kelly's friends and listeners in attendance.

"We had Mayor Greg Lanting on the show and he told us how great the lunch was at the senior center so after he left, I said to Kelly 'you know what, on your 60th, I'm going to take you to the senior center' because I normally take him to lunch on this birthday," adds Skeem.

Klaas says, "I thought it would be nice if my friends and listeners would join us and it just went from there and now we have this big event and I'm just tickled to death."

The radio station matched the amount of every person who ate lunch at the center on Thursday, up to $500.
