Former ARCHWAY Top 40/Rhythmic-turned Urban KHTE/LITTLE ROCK morning stud BRAD ERICKSON has joined NEW NORTHWEST BROADCASTING Top 40/Rhythmic KFAT/ANCHORAGE for APD/wakeups, beginning NOVEMBER 6th. Part of his deal is his own igloo, dog-sled team, and a year-round supply of garlic-flavored whale blubber. Mmmmmmmmm, tasty!
In making the announcement, K-FAT GM TOM OAKES commented, "BRAD is a uniquely talented individual who will bring us what we believe will be the next-generation morning show for ANCHORAGE. Though we found about BRAD through accidentally coming upon the NORWEGIAN BOYS CHOIR-rejected-applicants message board and realize he needs a tremendous amount of therapy to overcome his unfortunate choice to be a MINNESOTA VIKINGS fan, we believe his talent will shine through while his freezes his butt off in his first ALASKAN winter."
K-FAT PD DREW STONE added, "The fact BRAD offered to pay us to work here was the turning point in arranging his passport into the state. We're just hoping his first check to us won't bounce."
ERICKSON said, "I'm excited about the opportunity. NEW NORTHWEST BROADCASTING is one of the few companies left that gets what this business is all about, and I'm happy to be a part of what they're doing. The show is going to take ANCHORAGE by storm, and then FAIRBANKS, and then the rest of the continental U.S., and then -- if I don't get K-FAT and lazy -- the world!"
