    --------------------------John Canzano Inks Renewal With 750AM The Game/Portland--------------------------

    ALPHA BROADCASTING Sports KXTG-A (750AM THE GAME)/PORTLAMD "THE BALD FACED TRUTH" afternoon show host JOHN CANZANO has inked a multi-year deal to remain with the station. CANZANO, a columnist for THE OREGONIAN and commentator for crosstown NBC affiliate KGW-TV, has been with the station since its launch on FM in MAY 2008.

    Dir./Programming SCOTT MAHALICK said, "We're proud to have the premiere sports authority in the NORTHWEST anchoring 750AM THE GAME."

    "Sports talk listeners of the BALD FACED TRUTH radio show are smart, educated, good looking, influential and relevant. I love my audience, my sponsors, and this station," said CANZANO. "I'm staying right here because THE GAME is the place to be. Period."

    Just another reason why Portland radio continues to suck.

    I've never met this fellow, but between the O and his many KGW appearances and this AM talk show, he seems to have made a nice little multimedia career for himself in a town that doesn't obsess about sports. Plus he has a hot wife on TV. Why the venom? Does he have Colin Cowherd-type ambitions?

    Canzano may be somewhat of an asshole, but I do find his show entertaining. I thought Cowherd was very condescending when he used to post here.

    His "hot wife" was on TV before he got to town. IDK about his ambitions, other than to have a higher opinion of himself tomorrow than he did today.

    I've served John Canzano and talked with him a bit on his trips through PDX ... he comes across to me as a super nice guy. Say what you want about his column or sports show (I have listened some, I stick to KFXX), but IMHO, to me anyways, he's not an asshole.
