Alan Lytle

News Director

Bitten by the radio bug as a teenager, Alan Lytle got his start start more than 30 years ago volunteering in Clermont County, Ohio for WOBO-FM. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree  in Broadcasting from the University of Cincinnati and worked at a variety of radio stations in the Cincinnati market, then made the move to Lexington in the mid-1990s.

Lytle has served as WUKY News Director since 2002 and is the recipient of numerous Associated Press, CASE, and Communicator awards. He took home AP's Best Radio Anchor award in 2016. When not covering news, Lytle enjoys cheering on the Wildcats (and Bearcats) and tooling Lexington's streets and backroads in his snazzy 2011 Nissan Juke. He recently earned a Master’s degree in U.S. History from the University of Kentucky.
