PREMIERE NETWORKS and THEBLAZE host GLENN BECK's naming of PORTLAND, OR as the top city on his list of "godless cities to avoid like the plague" drew a swift rebuke from iHEARTMEDIA News-Talk KEX-A/PORTLAND morning host MICHAEL CASTNER. KEX is BECKs PORTLAND affiliate
On last FRIDAY's show (8/14), CASTNER told BECK that if he doesn't like PORTLAND, "Feel free to call our bosses and pull the plug. You won't be missed. Don't let the door hit you on the way out." And, CASTNER added, BECK shouldn't expect a muffin basket at CHRISTMAS.
Other cities BECK criticized on his "godless" list included SAN FRANCISCO, SEATTLE, DENVER, PHOENIX (where he once hosted the morning show on Top 40 KOY (Y95)), ST. PETERSBURG (where BECK came to prominence as a Talk show host at WFLA-A/TAMPA), COLUMBUS, OH, DETROIT, BOSTON, LOS ANGELES, MILWAUKEE, LAS VEGAS, MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL, WASHINGTON and ST. LOUIS.
