Powerful Programming In Denver
January 7, 2009 at 6:05 AM (PT)
BLAKE POWERS (recent PM Drive Top 40 KONN (107.1-ONE-FM)/DENVER and 5 year CBS RADIO/DENVER vet), new to pt/swing with LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Country KYGO/DENVER, jumped into coverage of DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT's SATURDAY (12/20/08) 6:20p CONTINENTAL Flight 1404, which skidded off the runway turning into flames, leaving many injured.
Said POWERS, "DENVER LINCOLN-FINANCIAL MEDIA stations are manned 24/7, while most market stations are weekend voice-tracked. I was alerted to the situation by long-time KYGO mid-day talent, PAUL DONOVAN. Lots-of-calls!!! One listener told me, 'you won't believe this, but 98-5 KYGO is the only station covering this! Hard to believe, but I switched over to other stations, including a newstalk station ... and nothing is being said!'
POWERS is still on the hunt for full-time work. Reach out at (303) 745-7050, (720) 335.8989 or email@example.com.
