ALL ACCESS has confirmed that MARCONI BOLOGNA, who had joined ALPHA MEDIA Triple A KINK/PORTLAND, OR Morning Show co-host SHEILA HAMILTON in late JULY of this year, has left the station as of last FRIDAY (10/17).
PD CHRIS MAYS posted on the station’s FACEBOOK page, "Dear Kinksters... Over the past few weeks we've received a lot of feedback about the changes on KINK. In response, we've decided to make a few tweaks. Most of you love the KINK air personalities, but for many of you, the addition of MARCONI to the morning show didn't strike the right chord. So we've decided to resume our search for the perfect partner for SHEILA HAMILTON."
MAYS is looking for his replacement. She told All ACCESS, “KINK is a 46-year-old heritage Triple A station. As such, our core audience is aging. We’re looking to create a morning show than reaches young people, but smart young people. There’s a huge influx of 20-40 year olds to PORTLAND. They come for jobs at NIKE, INTEL, ADIDAS, medical. No goofy bits or DJs. We need someone who is a versatile storyteller, in touch with pop culture, sports and a wide range of music.”
