Lars Larson To Perform Wedding
June 1, 2010 at 4:53 PM (PT)
ALPHA BROADCASTING Talk KXL-A/PORTLAND and COMPASS MEDIA NETWORKS syndicated host LARS LARSON is performing a wedding ceremony on FRIDAY afternoon, uniting listeners ERIKA WAGNER and DON COX, a pair of WASHINGTON COUNTY Sheriff's Deputies. LARSON is licensed to perform weddings in OREGON and WASHINGTON, and was approached by the bride's sister in an e-mail requesting his services. Rock violinist AARON MEYER will provide musical accompaniment for the ceremony.
"I'm flattered that I get the opportunity to officiate the marriage of two of our law enforcement public servants, not to mention one who has served this country in the MIDDLE EAST," said LARSON. "I admire their willingness to let this happen live on my show with the whole PACIFIC NORTHWEST listening in. I definitely won't be inviting a call from anyone who objects to this marriage!"
ALPHA Dir./Talk Programming BRIAN JENNINGS added, "LARS preaches anyway ... so this is just a natural extension of what he does every day."
