Ken Moon grew up in Massachusetts and graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a degree in Chemical Engineering. After his 4 year Air Force hitch, he began a home building company, Moon Homes, in 1970. Over the next 18 years, his firm built about 1500 homes, developing lots, commercial buildings and apartments along the way. He's held a real estate broker's license and, since 1990, has inspected over 4500 homes for would-be owners. He also consults with banks and new home builders on quality control and construction issues.
One of Ken's first loves was radio and TV. In fact, he had worked himself through high school and college as a disk jockey and TV personality. He feels fortunate to have been able to return to the media in the late 80's as (first) a news bureau chief for a local TV station, and later as a talk show host on the Business Radio Network, KTLK and KOA radio in Denver.
Currently he hosts "Around the House", a popular Saturday morning fix-it show on KOA's sister station, 630 KHOW in Denver, KRDO AM (1240) & FM (105.5) in the Springs, NewsTalk 590, KCSJ in Pueblo and Wyoming's radio station, the mighty, 50,000 watt KTWO (AM 1030) in Casper. His aroundthehouse.com Web site serves as a link to his readers and listeners.
His column, naturally called "Around the House", appears weekly in the Colorado Springs Gazette, the Pueblo Chieftain and the Casper Star Tribune.
Ken's has three grown boys and a daughter and 11 grandchildren. He is a private pilot and fiddles with an HO train layout when time permits.
