    And maconi can relate to the kink audience how??? This is the same guy who's show content was on porn, and sex. So did Sheila Hamilton get the ax? I just can't see her putting up with his antics.

    Gee radiodork, how long ago was that? Do you think people can ever change, or mature? Have you ever heard of radio people adapting to the format?

    Instead of find new talent. Portland radio stations grab another retread talent. Proving that radio in Portland is nothing but a swamp.

    Nothing new comes in and nothing old never leaves. It's just the same stagnant water.

    Here's what North America is reading this morning from All Access:

    -------------------------------Marconi Joins Sheila As Morning Show Co-Host On KINK-------------------------------

    ALPHA BROADCASTING Triple A/KINK/PORTLAND, OR adds MARCONI BOLOGNA to join SHELIA HAMILTON on the KINK morning show weekdays from 5-10a. The new show starts AUGUST 11th and will be called “SHEILA and MARCONI in the Morning.”

    “I've worked in PORTLAND radio for a long time. I recently lived in DENVER for almost 4 years. That whole time I missed being on PORTLAND radio, walkable neighborhoods, food carts and great restaurants, local music, and most of all, the people here. PORTLAND is my heart. KINK is my station,” said MARCONI.

    PD CHRIS MAYS commented, “I’ve worked at the same companies with MARCONI in both SEATTLE and PORTLAND and know him to be sweet, funny and wildly creative. SHEILA HAMILTON and MARCONI are going to wake up PORTLAND in a whole new way! His PORTLAND history at 94/7 KNRK and KUFO has created many MARCONI fans who will be happy to have him back in town. I’m very excited to work with him to create great radio at KINK.”

    “We are thrilled to have this much live and local super star power on KINK Mornings. MARCONI and SHEILA are an irresistible attraction, perfect for the Portlandia mind set,” remarked ALPHA MEDIA EVP SCOTT MAHALICK.

    Have KINK's owners completely lost their heads?

    I rarely post on this Radio blog.. I am just an old radio guy from the '70's early 80's..(was just a time and temp jock) .and I have no personal interest in Marconi..don't know and have never heard him..

    With all the changes in radio over the years..How about if we give the guy a chance before we blast him.. I am all for live and local radio, so encouraging comments and words would be nice...

    I'm right there. Time has passed, and the idea one's entire career gets defined by an event makes no sense.

    Hope he does well.
