This marks a return to the area for CRYSTAL, who was the morning and midday news anchor at CBS affiliate KOIN-TV in the late '90s. The veteran broadcaster had TV anchor stops including KOIN, KDAF-TV and KXAS-TV/DALLAS, and WGHP/HIGH POINT, NC. Radio stops include KKDA/DALLAS and WQMG/GREENSBORO, NC.
Commented station OM/PD CHRIS KELLY: “We are very excited about the pairing of NELSON and CRYSTAL as THE FISH continues to help make a difference in PORTLAND.”,
Added THORNTON: “DANNY GOKEY’s song says it best: Tell your heart to beat again!” That’s how I felt when I was asked to join the morning team of 104.1 THE FISH. Words cannot express how excited I am to be a part of inspiring our listening audience each morning through words of encouragement, music and, of course, a little laughter! I look forward to returning to PORTLAND, a city I’ve been blessed to call home and the opportunity to join our listeners on this journey we call life! “
