BONNEVILLE Talk KIRO-A/SEATTLE midday mainstay DAVE ROSS inks a new deal to remain with the station, with terms of the extension undisclosed.
"DAVE is one of the nation's great personalities who is not only a cornerstone of KIRO but an important voice for the residents of Western WASHINGTON," said VP/Market Mgr. SCOTT SUTHERLAND. "We are honored and proud to have him around for another three years as part of the KIRO and BONNEVILLE family."
"Radio is sill the most versatile, immediate, and personal broadcast medium there is, and I'm eager to wirk with BONNEVILLE to expand KIRO's reach. Plus, the show's already named after me, which made the decision a lot easier," joked ROSS, who joined the station in 1987, took over weekday afternoons in 1987, and moved to 9a in 1995. "2008 will mark 30 years since I forst signed on at KIRO, and you don't stay at a place that long unless it's in your blood. I've seen some history, been at the center of some great debates, traveled the world -- and I'm thinking if I can stay on the air long enough, the EASTLAKE AZTECA will finally have to name a booth after me."
