    This from The Craig Adams News Service:

    A source tells me, Marconi has been shown the door at KINK. He began on August 11, 2014.

    Well that didn't take long.

    And not the question is this. What Portland radio station is going to give Marconi another chance? What number are we on now? seven or eight?

    I actually thought the show was getting really good. I'm concerned about the direction KINK has been taking. It seems like the leadership has been very weak lately. Maybe it's time for Mays to step down and give someone else the keys.

    They've really made a mess of a once great radio station.

    Maybe they should go with another format on 101.9?

    Only if management pays attention. You'd be surprised how many small, and yes, large markets don't.

    When I left a position at a market leading AC in Idaho, my bio was left on the website for 60+ days. OK, I don't really have a problem with that...because any publicity is good publicity! :)

    Speaking of not keeping their online presence up to date, check out the "media kit" for KNRQ and try to guess how long it's been since they updated it. Hint: The answer is in the range of "years".

    Ridiculous. How do you judge any change and new combination of personalities in 2 months? Unless he did something egregious, this is typical corporate radio kneejerkiness
