Portland OR Radio: Corey&Mitch Morning Show To Launch On KINK

Corey Foley
Alpha Media/Portland OR has announced the addition of Corey and Mitch to mornings on KINK FM. The show will begin airing 5:30am to 10am on May 2nd.

Corey Foley was born and raised in Florida. It all started in St. Petersburg, FL, at Wild 94.1. She then moved to Minneapolis, MN, to work with Dave Ryan at KDWB. Corey then headed to San Francisco where she worked at 95.7 The Wolf with Scott Mahalick. Her next move was to the wild west, a.k.a. Houston, to be on 100.3 The Bull. The west coast has now called her back and she can't wait to explore everything that is Portland and KINK.

"I am very excited to work with Scott again, as well as Sean Demery and Mitch Elliot. It's an amazing team and I'm truly blessed to be a part of it," added Corey.

Mitch Elliott
Mitch Elliott is a native of Atlanta who began his radio career at WRAS. From there he moved to WFOX where he would learn the craft while working in positions ranging from overnights to Assistant Program Director and Afternoon Drive. After nearly 16 years at WFOX, the Northwest was beckoning to Mitch for a change. He spent three years doing mornings at KLSY in Seattle before finding his forever home in Portland, OR. After a very successful 10-year run as the afternoon drive-time show at KRSK and two nominations and one win for Best Radio Show in Portland (as voted on by readers of Willamette Week), Mitch is thrilled to have found his new radio home on 101.9 KINK.

Mitch stated, "It only took me two and a half decades, but I have finally landed my dream gig at KINK! I look forward to working with the incredibly talented team to keep KINK the amazing radio station it has been for years!"
