ROSE CITY RADIO Talk KXL-A/PORTLAND inks OREGONIAN sports columnist and PULITZER PRIZE nominee JOHN CANZANO for a new show, "THE BALD FACED TRUTH," weeknights starting in SEPTEMBER.
"As a listener of THE BALD FACED TRUTH on KXL you'll get unique insight, strong opinions, and an unfiltered behind-the-scenes look at my Oregonian column, said CANZANO. "I'm going to bring you with me wherever the reporting takes me. It's unprecedented for a flagship station to give an outspoken critic such widespread autonomy. I won't filter, I won't lower my expectations, I won't stop telling you about inspiring stories when I find them, and I'm sure there will be days the people we're talking about on the show wished KXL had never done this."
"JOHN CANZANO is undoubtedly the best-known personality in OREGON’s sports media landscape," said Pres./GM TIM MCNAMARA. "We’re ecstatic about giving him the platform to reach tens of thousands of local sports enthusiasts and to expand on his wildly popular commentaries in THE OREGONIAN."
