Graigg Neff reports former Kisn-FM Good Guy MIKE TANNER has died at age 68. Mike died of a massive heart attack last Tuesday (1-13-15) in Monroe, Washington. Mike Tanner was first heard in Portland on Country “K-98” KUPL-AM/FM mid-days on March 16, 1984. Mike moved to Oldies “Kisn 91” mid-days in December 1987 which became Kisn-FM two months later. Mike worked at Kisn-FM to May 1993.
Mike wasn’t just a “Good Guy’ he was a Great Guy and fun to be around! Mike has been one of the most asked about jocks that broadcast on Kisn-FM over the years. He will be missed.
Mike holds a special place in my heart. I was fresh out of broadcasting school and Mike brought me on as his intern at KISN. I was scraping by as single parent and out of the blue Mike gave me $300 so I could have a nice Xmas with my daughter. I will never forget him. RIP my friend.
