Portland is his home away from home! He's a Northwest native...now trapped in Hartford, Connecticut these days. And each weekday morning, he delights his countless listeners across the nation. None more than right here in the Rose City. Portland is where "The Herd" is listened to most. He's none other than former KGW Sports Director Colin Cowherd....who stopped by our studio on Sunday night. And what a riot we had! In fact, I wouldn't be holding down the position I have right now if it weren't for Colin electing to working at the "mothership" known as ESPN. I thanked him profusely for going splittsville on KGW :) Cowherd is in a league of his own. Well-revered in any broadcast circle you may come up with. He's extremely intelligent and knowledgable in many different walks of life....that's why his radio show is a huge success. I asked him if he has any intention of filling the vacant seat of Dan Patrick....he said no. He enjoys the hours he works (about 6 per day). Those were far from the hours he logged between 1080 The Fan and KGW a mere 4 years ago.
He'd fill the 6-9 a.m. radio slot....then scoot over here and work from 3-11:30 p.m.
If you want to see the entire interview....head over to the "video" portion of our website and track it down. It was the highlight of the week for me....for sure!
