I’ve always wanted to be on the radio,” she admitted, “and now I am!
“I knew from the fifth grade in Detroit that this was what I wanted to do.
I never imagined all the great moments, fun and odd ball surprises that I’d face in my four decades behind the microphone.” Those unexpected experiences included: The TV star that went toe-to-toe with a lady of the evening one morning in our studio and The 25-year old DJ who gets a big surprise from a 70-year old cougar.
Union Gospel Mission is dedicated to “Feeding the hungry, restoring the addict, and loving our neighbor.” 101.9 KINK Program Director, Chris Mays commented on the event, “It’s such a privilege to work at a radio station with such passionate and caring listeners.
We are honored to be a part of bringing hope to thousands of people in the Portland community this holiday season by providing meals for the hungry.” KINK is owned and operated by Alpha Broadcasting, along with 98.7 The Bull, 750 The Game, Live 95.5, FM NEWS 101 KXL and Freedom 970.
The funds were raised for the Union Gospel Mission yesterday, Thursday November 21, 2013 during an all day on-air Radio-A-Thon that was broadcast live from The Bing Lounge. The final number of company matches has yet to be included in the total.
