    ----------------------------------------Louie Diaz Exits The PD Chair At KBFF----------------------------------------

    ALPHA BROADCASTING Top 40 KBFF (LIVE 95.5)/PORTLAND PD LOUIE DIAZ and the station have parted company.

    No word on the next stop for LOUIE, or who takes over at LIVE 95.5 ... however, ALPHA VP/Programming SCOTT MAHALICK indicated that an announcement was coming, soon.

    As PAUL HARVEY used to say, "Stand by for news."
