Gus LloydHost of "Seize the Day" on Sirius XM129
Gus grew up in the Catholic faith. As a kid, his family was like a cross between the Brady Bunch (3 boys and 3 girls…Gus is Greg Brady) and the Partridge Family (very musical). They used to have a family choir which sang at their local parish, Mary, Help of Christians in Fairborn, OH. He went to Catholic school, was an altar boy and did all the stuff that Catholic kids do.
Gus got his first radio gig in 1979 at WFIV, a small country AM station in Kissimmee, FL. Shortly after that, he moved back to Ohio to wed Michelle in 1980. From there he did the radio gypsy thing…moving from market to market to get better gigs and more money. Shortly after the birth of their first daughter, the couple decided to move to Florida to start a family business, Lloyd’s of Lawndom.
In 1992, after the death of his youngest brother, Gus was called back into radio. WBVM, the Catholic station in Tampa, FL asked if Gus would do a Friday contemporary Christian music show. Before long, they asked if he would host their morning show, and Gus agreed. After 3 years of hosting the morning show, Gus left to become a Sales Manager with a computer training company. But after 10 month and many calls asking that they bring Gus back, WBVM asked Gus to come back and start out their new format, Spirit FM. Gus was the popular morning show host at Spirit FM for another 9 years.
In the summer of 2006, the Archdiocese of New York called to talk with Gus about hosting the morning show on the new Catholic Channel on Sirius Satellite Radio. He went on the air December 4, 2006. You can listen to Gus on Seize the Day, weekday mornings on Sirius XM 129. Visit his blog at: https://gusllloyd.com
