Bruce & John, congratulations and enjoy retirement!December 10, 2019 at 10:53 am #43466tombrooksParticipant
Wow… That is good news for them – What a RUN they have had.. Congratulations to both Bruce and John ..!! (To Bruce you are such a great example of another successful Student from Benson High School – KBPS Radio…cheers to you)December 10, 2019 at 11:29 am #43467
I had suspected that they’d leave at the same time. I once attended a basketball game with Bruce Murdock, about 50 years ago, YIKES! Here’s the story from Radio Insight: https://radioinsight.com/headlines/182284/bruce-murdock-and-john-erickson-to-retire-from-k103-portland-morning-show/

Sign up to get an invite to be in the iHeartRadio Theater during Bruce & John’s last show.December 10, 2019 at 1:16 pm #43473nosignalallnoiseParticipant
So…. what’s going to happen once they’re gone? Are IFart going to bring in new announcers (who would subsequently have some VERY big boots to try and fill) or are they just going to dump KKCW into full-jukebox mode a la KYCH?
End of an era. K103FM is dead.December 10, 2019 at 2:56 pm #43475warnerParticipant

Hello Mike & Amy?December 10, 2019 at 4:28 pm #43476
Wonder if Janine Wolf will be a part of any morning show reboot?December 10, 2019 at 6:01 pm #43479paulwalkerParticipant
Wow, what a run. Two of the best broadcasters in Northwest history. And a plug for their Seattle years as well. Bruce and John both spent time at KING-AM, but my memory does not serve me if John worked at KLSY, where Bruce spent many years. I’m sure someone knows! I worked with Bruce and John as a PT’r at KING back in the dark ages. Both real pro’s, always kind. I wish both well in retirement. You will be missed.December 12, 2019 at 5:24 pm #43484bossjockParticipant
“Hello, Mike & Amy?”…
THERE ya go.

The husband and wife team of Nick Steele and Kirsten Flowers are leaving AC KOIT San Francisco, with no destination announced. Could they be coming to K103? If so, this will be the second time in a row that I’ve done this. I correctly guessed that Bruce Murdock would replace Craig Walker.December 13, 2019 at 2:59 pm #43492
Just spent 10 minutes on YouTube with Nick and Kristen…I dunno, semoochie.December 13, 2019 at 6:53 pm #43494paulwalkerParticipant
“Just spent 10 minutes on YouTube with Nick and Kristen…I dunno, semoochie.”
I think edselehr and I will have to arm wrestle over this one. Semoochie, I think you will be 2 for 2.December 14, 2019 at 1:03 am #43496
Just to be somewhat on topic, does anyone remember Bruce Murdock as Bob Charles? I beg your pardon. The woman’s name is Kristen, not Kirsten!

I stand corrected, semoochie. Not saying you are wrong about Nick and KIRSTEN, I just wasn’t feeling the “natural successors to Bruce and John” vibe very strongly. But if they’re good (they seem to be) and the price is right, I’m sure IHeart is all in.
Soon enough we’ll know the fate of mornings on K103.
