Starting TUESDAY, AUGUST 28th, former NFL coach JERRY GLANVILLE will join longtime radio announcer MARCONI on CBS RADIO Active Rock KUFO/PORTLAND at 3p throughout the football season. The duo promises to take listeners on a behind-the-scenes tour of the famed coach’s first year leading the PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY Vikings.
In addition to his coaching experience, GLANVILLE has spent 11 years behind the microphone as an NFL commentator for FOX, HBO and CBS Sports. "This is great fun," GLANVILLE said. "I love rock ‘n roll -- as long as MARCONI’s not singing."
"We've only just met but already I feel a bond with the Coach," said 11-year vet MARCONI. "He brings so much energy into the studio and we've talked about everything from his friendship with JOHNNY CASH to the cookies they serve in DAVID LETTERMAN’s green room. I'm sure we'll get around to talking some football, too."
"When JERRY GLANVILLE took the PORTLAND STATE coaching job, PORTLAND gained not only a first class football coach but a veteran broadcaster," commented KUFO PD MIKE TIERNEY. "It's not every day that KUFO has a chance to work with a guy whose experience includes several of the major broadcast networks. We are excited to add him to the MARCONI Show."
