I’m really hoping they’ll have one of their infamous drink tastings, seeing as surely I won’t have had enough the night before, nor will I have any the rest of the weekend. Drunk at only my 4th day of the new jobby. Sweet!
As for what we will be discussing, besides the incredibly ambiguous “Pride” is anybody’s guess. Their conversations usually consist of things like exploding cocks, neck brace organizers and bastardizing the English language.
From the press release:
Portland Media is a vastly different landscape than it was 5 years ago. Editors, columnists, talkers, hosts, constantly shuffled in and escorted out of the public eye. Very few of these people make the sort of impact their employers hope for. The kind of impact that keeps an audience loyal, keeps the people tuned in, keeps those eyes reading and watching. And even when these minor miracles of media success do occur, there’s no guarantee they’ll be around long – or if they’re dismissed, that they’ll ever return.
Wed. June 9th, pdx.fm’s Cort and Fatboy will play host to a pair of beloved media veterans, well-respected by both their audience and their peers, as they reveal the next step in their careers, live at 10am. This isn’t like Daniel Baldwin flying into town, twitters-a-blazin, hosting a sketchy awards show and then signing on to star in “Stripperland.” This isn’t Ron Jeremy rolling into town to preside over a buffet at a sex club. These guests are people that Oregonians care about a great deal, and their announcement should shoot down a lot of preconceptions of what local media is about and how the game can successfully be played.
My hope is that the announcement involves free unicorn shirts for everyone!
The Meat Show and Unibash Radio have also been retired, but that frees up Emily Gibson and Jay Mackin, respectively, to join Robert Wagner and Sabrina Miller for the new two hour-ish morning show (leading up to Cort and Fatboy at 10am).
Portland Sucks debuted as a blog back in 2008. On January 29th, 2009 a weekly internet radio show was launched under the moniker, hosted by Robert Wagner and Sabrina Miller. The show drew enough interest after only two weeks that they decided to make it a daily show, and since then it has aired almost every weekday morning at 8am.
There are tons of great shows on PDX.fm and PDX.am, but Portland Sucks is/was my favorite, and has provided some epic rants and entertainment in its year and a half run. The show also holds some special memories for me. Last July the show’s listeners picked my humble blog as their favorite Portland blog! And in February, after literally weeks of polite invites, wrangling, and finally kidnapping threats 😉 from Robert and Sabrina, I made my radio debut second radio appearance ever as a guest on Portland Sucks episode 229.
So on behalf of all Portland Sucks fans, I want to thank Robert and Sabrina for a thoroughly entertaining show and congratulate them on a fantastic run!
Robert is being coy about his future radio presence, but no doubt announcements will be made soon (perhaps during the final show?). You can continue to hear Sabrina on multiple PDX.fm programs: Convention Crashers, the Nerd Report, iPhoneSlutz, and soon, iPadSlutz!
