CBS Active Rock KUFO/PORTLAND, OR names THE RICK EMERSON SHOW as its new morning-drive program, starting THURSDAY, MARCH 12th, 5-9a. He replaces the recently defeunct ADAM COROLLA SHOW. A fixture on the PORTLAND radio airwaves for the last decade, RICK has most recently been hosting the midday show at sister News/Talk/Sports KCMD-A. The move to KUFO will reunite EMERSON with producer and co-host SARA X. DYLAN and newsman TIM RILEY.
"No show has built more of a following on PORTLAND radio over the last decade than THE RICK EMERSON SHOW." commented KUFO OM CHRIS PATYK. “RICK's fresh and irreverent approach to broadcasting fits perfectly on KUFO and screams live and local. I'm proud to have RICK, SARAH and TIM on our team." Patyk continued, "When I first moved to PORTLAND, all I heard was, ‘You gotta listen to RICK EMERSON.’ A year later I was telling my friends, ‘You gotta listen to RICK EMERSON.’ It's my sincerest hope that all of PORTLAND will soon be saying the same thing.”
