iHEARTMEDIA News-Talk KEX-A/PORTLAND has upped APD CORT WEBBER to PD, effective TODAY (9/1). WEBBER is also APD and midday host at sister Classic Rock KFBW (105.9 THE BREW); he is best known for his tenure as co-host of crosstown KUFO's "CORT AND FATBOY" and KBBT (107.5 THE BEAT)'s "THE GINA, CORT AND REBECCA SHOW" and has hosted a podcast as well.
“CORT has worked extremely hard over the last six years to earn this opportunity,” said PACIFIC NORTHWEST Region President ROBERT DOVE. “He has always stepped up and has been invested in making IHEARTMEDIA’s PORTLAND operation better. I’m fortunate to have him on my team.”
"It's about time. I mean, geez, I've been here six years. I should be running the whole company by now. But I guess this is better than nothing,” said WEBBER. “OK, you ready to jot this down? How about something like, 'I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to push these two stations to even greater success. I have lived in PORTLAND my whole life and it's truly a dream to be able to program in the best city in the country. Thanks to ROBERT DOVE for giving me this amazing opportunity.' Is that enough? Good. Now, where the hell's my new office?"
