Former BEASLEY Country WKIS (KISS COUNTRY)/MIAMI morning personality SCOTT SIMON will join AMY BISHOP "AMY B," a former personality for ABC RADIO NETWORKS' 24-hour Country format, "Today's Best Country," for mornings at ALPHA BROADCASTING Country KUPL/PORTLAND, OR.
The new show will take the spot held by LEE ROGERS, a 15-year KUPL veteran, who is departing after his last show on DECEMBER 18th. Co-Host ALANA LYNN, still at the station, will also be exiting soon. Contact ALANA at (503) 200-9660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

ALPHA BROADCASTING Dir./Music Programming and KUPL PD SCOTT MAHALICK remarked: "While this is a bittersweet time for KUPL, seeing the legendary LEE ROGERS ride off to retirement on his HARLEY, I'm so excited to have secured the next great morning show for the station. SIMON & BISHOP have that special combination of personality, wit, knowledge of the music, not to mention a proven track record of great ratings. I predict big things ahead for KUPL."
The new show debuts on KUPL on JANUARY 4th, 2010. Contact MAHALICK at email@example.com.
