Todd-N-Tyler Exposed Part 2: The Guys Outside the Studio

Todd-N-Tyler Exposed Part 2: The Guys Outside the Studio

By Jennifer Griswold. CREATED May 3, 2013

Omaha, NE - People may be surprised to see Z-92's Todd-N-Tyler outside of work. 

Mike Tyler who has two kids ages eight and ten told us, "I'm controversial guy in the morning and dad rest of the day, pretty frickin' boring." His wife, Becky, said that basically sums it up. She said, "He's just like everyone else. In the morning when he's at work, it's a show. It's a show he puts on and it's a job, and when he comes home he's a normal dad and husband and we have a normal, boring life just like everybody else."

Tyler spends his free time coaching his son's baseball team and taking his daughter on movie dates. He admits his kids aren't allowed to listen to the show because it's not appropriate for their age. 

Those who know Todd Brandt describe him as an introvert. He says he saves his talking for on the air and then shuts up for the rest of the day. His hobbies include fishing, doing yoga and golfing. 

Todd Brandt and his wife Christy have a blended family. Their six kids are ages 17-28. They consider their three dogs a big part of the family too. Christy says her husband is a softie, "he's an incredible father, incredible husband. I never knew somebody could love as much as he does and care as much as he does. He's an awesome individual."

This summer will mark 20 years of the duo doing radio in Omaha. They've won the number one spot in their time slot in the key demographic for 12 straight years. (Watch Todd-N-Tyler: Exposed, Part 1. Be advised the attached video does contain some adult content.)

The Todd-N-Tyler Radio Empire broadcasts from 5-10 am Monday through Friday in Omaha on Z-92. They also rebroadcast at night and have podcasts available. Todd-N-Tyler certainly aren't alone on the show. Craig Evans does news every morning, Petey Mac shares sports and Big P is the show's producer.  

Several years ago the show became syndicated. You can now hear it in a total of eight radio markets as far away as California. 
 
Z-92 is celebrating TNT's 20th Anniversary. They're even giving away $20,000. There are also upcoming events marking the anniversary including a golf tournament, a day of racing at Horsemen's Park and an Alice Cooper concert. You can learn all about the concerts and contests on the Z-92 web site.
