Current Staff

Lex Staley

Co-founder, co-host The Lex & Terry Radio Network Lex Staley is a 25-year veteran of the radio industry with a successful track record both on the management and talent sides of the business. He is best known in the industry for his ability to turn around inefficient, poorly performing stations, helping them achieve double-digit market share and raise the ratings meter.

Lex began his radio career in 1978 in sales at Jacksonville Fla.-based WKUE-FM and soon began working on the other side of the booth as an on-air personality.

He soon moved over another Jacksonville, Fla.-based station, WFYV-FM, where he not only hosted a variety of evening and mid-day shows, but also maintained executive management positions, including music director and program director. Over the next 10 years, Lex turned WFYV's ratings fortunes around in two separate programming periods.

In 1997, Lex stepped down from his director’s position to concentrate solely on building the Lex & Terry Morning Radio Network.

A native of Pittsburgh Pa., Lex currently resides in the Dallas, Texas area with his wife, daughter, and other baby, a Harley Davidson "Street Glide".

In addition, he appeared regularly on Fox’s former hit shows Sunday Comics And Comic Strip Live and Pure Insanity.

A native of Southern California, Terry resides in Dallas, TX, with his wife, Shari, and Harley Davidsons.

Peter Welpton

Peter is the managing director of the show, hired in 1997 when the show underwent national syndication. In addition to his managerial duties, he is also a featured member of the on-air talent, most recently taking over as the news man in the absence of a regular "newschick." In addition to this, he also hosts his own segment titled "The Geek Out" in the show's iTunes podcasts and online radio stream. Peter started his radio career while at Texas Tech University, spending the majority of his time working at the college radio station KTXT-FM. After college, he worked at the Dallas heritage rock station "Q102". Later, he got into the syndication end of the radio industry and moved to New York City to work for MJI Broadcasting. Peter is a native of Dallas, Texas. [1]

Tyler "Taint" Baker

Tyler originally joined the staff as an intern, but became a full-time employee on April 2007. He works as a phone screener, but is also a member of the on-air talent, being featured in many of the show's bits such as "Helper Taint", "Taint on a Bus", "Black Like Taint", "Make Taint Scream", and "Spread my Mom". He has also proven that there are no lengths to which he will not go for the sake of the show, such as consuming insects, drinking urine, and getting his body hair waxed live on the air. A Florida native, Tyler currently resides in the Dallas, Texas area.[2]

Devell "Dee" Reed

Devell performs various duties for the show, including screening phones, scheduling guests, serving as the proprietor of the Lex and Terry Store, and participating as part of the on-air talent by being featured in various bits such as "The Applicant", "Homeless Idol", "Homeless Coin Toss", and "Homeless Comic". He also hosts his own segment called "At Home With Dee" on the podcast and online radio stream, which is a compilation of random conversations that occur in his home. Originally a native of Tampa, Florida, he moved to Jacksonville, Florida in 1994 and began working as a club DJ. Afterwards, he was picked up by Clear Channel and began work as an overnight DJ for the radio station WJBT 92.7. Becoming a nighttime ratings success, listeners claimed that he was borrowing ideas from the Lex and Terry show. In response, he called into the show and "confessed to the act", to which Lex and Terry enjoyed so much that Devell became part of the staff soon afterwards, and has been on the staff ever since. He currently resides in the Dallas, Texas area with his wife and children. [3]

Jason

Jason is the show's producer. His duties include filtering out inappropriate content on the air as well as operating the sound effects machine. He began his radio career working for the radio station WZZR 94.3 in south Florida while attending college to obtain a degree in music. Upon realizing that his job was turning into a career, Jason soon transitioned into the radio industry. He began working for the Love Doctors as a phone screener and assistant to the producer, and after a year, he became the producer. Towards the end of 2008, upon the departure of producer Scott Richards, Lex and Terry contacted Jason for the position, and he accepted. Jason is a native of Stuart, Florida. [4]
