He states that he had the good fortune to be around broadcasting for his entire life thanks to his dad, Jay Lewis. His dad has been a fixture in Fairbanks broadcasting for about 40 years. This is in addition to blazing the great trail that is frankly been fairly easy for him to follow. He states that he just needed to sound like Jay, and his chances would be good.

Lewis also states that he remembers being a kid when KTVF-TV and KFRB Radio(now KCBF) were co-located downtown in the Northward building. He also states that if his folks were working late he would sneak into the KTVF studio and throw paper airplanes around. This was while hoping that Augie Hiebert(founder of KTVF) would not catch him.

For him, the year 1997 was a big year because that is also when their son was born. The summer of the year 2012 saw him being smack in the middle of trying to figure out their son’s school issue and ran across a Facebook ad for an anchor slot at KTVF. He went on to pick the role without thinking otherwise. He states that he can’t think of too many other times where he has been so glad to have a self-assessment going wrong.  Lewis states that his family enjoys life in Fairbanks, which is a homecoming for him, and a new adventure for everybody else.
