February 28, 2011 at 8:16 AM (PT)
New PD DENNIS GLASGOW is wasting no time making changes at PAMPLIN Talk KPAM-A/PORTLAND, with a lineup shuffle making the station live-and-local 5a-3p weekdays.
Morning man BOB MILLER will shift two hours later to air 7-11a starting THURSDAY (3/3). The move, displacing FOX NEWS RADIO's JOHN GIBSON, will make room for a two-hour early morning news block, "FIRST EDITION," with TIM HOHL and PAT BOYLE, focusing on local news, weather, and traffic. VICTORIA TAFT's local show remains in place 11a-3p. With the changes, the station is reimaging as "AM 860, THE VOICE OF PORTLAND."
GLASGOW said, "Being local is important to our listeners and PORTLAND, period. We have a bank of talented people here at AM 860, and we'll be using our entire team to play to their strengths. We're excited for our listeners to have TIM and PAT start their day. 'The Dean' of PORTLAND Radio BOB MILLER will have naturally have a bigger audience at 7a, as he continues his legendary status in PORTLAND radio."
