I produce The Chad Hasty Show on KFYO and pitch in on Pratt on Texas and high school sports on SportsRadio 1340 The Fan. In 2010, I completed a 29-year career as an air traffic controller that included four years with the United States Air Force, and the rest with the FAA. I'm a West Texas native, married with two children and a professional photographer. I love the outdoors and the night sky, reading, music, and spicy food. As a long time talk-radio listener, I enjoy being in the thick of things at KFYO.
