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 "Road King" custom.
