Name Change

I suppose it's time again to remind my friends and family.....WHY I changed my name from Ed Myers to Lee Shephard.

Simple: When I came to Washington in 1961, there was already a broadcaster on the air here named Ed Myer.

So, the station and the union, wouldn't let me use my real name...even if I had wanted to.  But to have two on air performers with such similar names...well, there would have been no end to the confusion.
Hence, the made up name of "Lee Shephard."

Since everyone up here  in the Washington area knows me as Lee Shephard, I changed my name OFFICIALLY to "Lee Shephard."

That eliminated a lot of confusion....especially for my wife and kids.

So, to paraphrase a famous saying...."Call me anything ….except "Late for supper."
