    --------------------------------Dan Mitchinson Joins KXL As Afternoon Co-Host--------------------------------

    BONNEVILLE Talk KIRO-F/SEATTLE evening news anchor DAN MITCHINSON migrates down I-5 to join ALPHA BROADCASTING Talk KXL-F (FM NEWS 101)/PORTLAND as co-host of the station's 4-7p (PT) weekday "PORTLAND'S AFTERNOON NEWS" with LACEY EVANS, starting JULY 9th.

    Dir./Programming SCOTT MAHALICK said, "DAN's conversational approach to news is a welcome addition to KXL. His style is where contemporary News delivery is going!"

    "KXL is certainly one of the best known news/talk stations in the country. And one of the things that excites me the most, is not just telling stories, but the way we're able to start conversations with our listeners. Anyone can read the news, or check their Twitter account. What KXL does best is tell passionate stories that make you feel even more connected and involved with the city I now get to call home," added MITCHINSON.

    I don't know if this is it, but something has to be done to put a spark in KXL's presentation. Right now, it's less compelling than listening to paint dry.

    I had it on for a half-hour tonight, and I kid you not...three hits on the kids-falling-through-screens-in-Clackamas-County story in 24 minutes. And I heard nothing that resembled a "conversation" with either a listener or a newsmaker.

    Let's hope Alpha was smart this time and required Dan to sign a two year guarantee that he won't go back to Seattle...like their last transplant from the Emerald City did. 8)
