A Short Life Story

Turi Ryder spent years as a music jock in Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. You may have heard Turi hosting her own talk show on WGN Chicago,KSTP Minneapolis, WLS Chicago, KIRO Seattle,  FreeFM San Francisco, or KFI Los Angeles.


Turi made the switch to talk radio and morning drive at KGW in Portland in 1989, and ended up with a three-alarm-clock-two-thermos-of-coffee-a-day habit. From there, Ryder spent three years at KSTP Minneapolis, then moved back to Chicago. Anticipating the dotcom boom and bust by about four years, Ryder tumbled through a series of short-lived stations. You could have heard her at WLS FM Chicago, "The Zone" in Los Angeles, or KPIX FM in San Francisco, all in the space of two years.

After decompressing at KFI Los Angeles for awhile, Ryder decided that perhaps it was wiser to seek stability on the domestic front. She created the "Turi Ryder's Exception to the Rule" humor feature on domestic life for the CBS radio network for six years, as well as hosting the live syndicated radio show, "America Weekend."

Turi Ryder

Turi and her husband live in Chicago, with their two teen-age boys and various adopted pets. Since Ryder has made much fun of people who rave about the joys of motherhood, she'll skip straight to the part where she admits that about twice a day on good days, and twice an hour on bad ones, she considers selling her two delightful children for a scandalous sum of money and living the rest of her life without ever again cleaning a viscous substance out of a Blackhawks lunchbox. Those moments are why she decided to write "She Said What?".

Turi also has a small advertising agency specializing in political spots, writes the occasional humor piece for publication, and has edited two books on talk radio.
