1977 – Louisville, Kentucky
Faith Lyles has been co-host of “Omelet”, a daily talk and interview program at WHAS-TV, the CBS affiliate in Louisville, Kentucky. Formerly a history teacher at Barrett Junior High School and Saint Francis School in Louisville, her successful audition for the co-host spot prompted what she calls her “story book” career change. A native of Louisville, Mrs. Lyles attended Rockford College in Illinois and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from the University of Louisville. Her education and professional background has been put to use daily in researching current discussion topics for her program. Her guests have included prominent representatives of the political, literary, entertainment and sports worlds. One of her favorite interviews was with the late anthropologist Margaret Mead. Other guests of prominence have included actor John Wayne, heavyweight boxer Muhammed Ali, composer Marvin Hamlisch and Alabama Governor George Wallace. Northwood of Indiana faculty members and administrators were often guests on “Omelet.” Mrs. Lyles has been an appointee of the Board of Trustees for St. Joseph’s Hospital in Louisville. She is married to Lenny Lyles, a former standout player with the Baltimore Colts professional football team. They have three sons.
