Tim was born in Detroit, Michigan and fell in love with radio while listening to the legendary Ernie Harwell call Detroit Tigers baseball games. After spinning records (remember those?) on his 100-watt college radio station in Walla Walla, Washington, his first paying job was working weekends on the local country station.
Tim earned his news chops at KXL in Portland before moving to Seattle’s KOMO radio and finally back to Portland and KPAM.
As a street reporter, Tim has covered major news stories in Oregon, Washington, California, Canada & Asia, including the 1994 Northridge earthquake and the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997.
He’s been KPAM's News Director since 2000. When he’s not on the radio, Tim is riding his bicycle, brewing beer in his garage, listening to the Tigers on the radio, or spending time with his wife and daughter.

If you’ve heard me talk about “The Couv” on the air, I say it like I mean it! I grew up in Vancouver, technically, north of town in Hazel Dell, graduated from Columbia River High, Clark College and Lewis and Clark College. (That makes me a Chieftain, a Penguin and a Pioneer…if you are counting). My extended family all still live in Southwest Washington. We’ve lived there for five generations, my great-great grandmother taught in a one room schoolhouse outside of Camas.
I got my start in radio in the Portland area, I’ve worked at KEX, KINK, and KXL – and at KWIP in Dallas, Oregon and in Seattle at KOMO. I’ve been at KPAM twice too – here’s a trivia question for you, when did I first work here? (Hint, it was only for a month!).
My second incarnation at AM 860 has been MUCH longer; I’ve been here since 2005. I now have the opportunity to wake up early and work with Tim Hohl, Mark Provost, Jon Eric Smith and Mark Dornfeld on First Edition. I am truly blessed!
Away from work, I’m a wife, step-mom to three very smart kids and dog-mom to two barky mutts. And I love them all. I like to bike, read, camp, watch baseball and hike – oh and play my ukulele. What more is there in life, other than chocolate!

Mark is a native Floridian; began his radio career in Korea, Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam with the Armed Forces Radio & Television service. In 1975 he joined the San Francisco bureau of the NBC News & Information Service (like CNN on radio), and remained with NBC-owned KNBR as a reporter and news director until 1996. He came to Portland as news director of KXL radio and jumped to AM860 in 2003. Hobbies include irritating Ralph Nader by maintaining a 1965 Corvair in pristine condition and consuming fine Oregon wines.

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon. Currently living in Gresham with my wife Sandy, and two sons Jonathan and Ian. I've been reporting on traffic in Portland since 1982 and at KPAM since July 2011. When I'm not keeping an eye on your commute, odds are I'm in the Wallowa Mountains in NE Oregon hiking, fishing and just relaxing...my "home away from home" since my parents first took me there in the 70s.

I’m a native Portlander and I’ve been working in radio since I was 17. Lately I have been struggling with the realization that I’m your classic PDX hipster, when I’m not working I enjoy buying used vinyl records, taking pictures with film and I even make my own pickles.
I’m also a fan of old time radio and theme parks.

I am the producer of First Edition w/ Tim Hohl & Terry Travis not the lead guitarist for the heavy metal band Testament. I was born a blue-eyed Swede on the banks of the Puget Sound in a time when Seattle was known for airplanes and scenery not crappy coffee and lack of a professional basketball team.
I left that NBA barren land and traveled down the slog to join the ranks of an upstart news/talk station for my first and last radio job, AM 860. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my dogs Penelope Layne and Gary Payton, boating (going up and down the Willamette without the water getting on my skin) thinking about the finale of Lost and reading the almanac. Did you know the capital of Eritrea is Asmara? You do now!

Worked: I have worked in Portland radio for 15 years. I have also worked in Seattle, Boise, and Roanoke VA.
I moved to the Portland area when I was 10. I went to Rock Creek Elementary, Meadow Park Middle School, and Westview High School. (Go Wildcats!)
I am married to my high school sweetheart with 2 kids (Parker 6, and Keaton 3) and two cats (Pete and Re-Pete)
When I am not at AM860 some of my favorite things to do are travel (love Las Vegas!) and hang out with the family. I love taking my kids to Big Al’s in Beaverton or Bullwinkle’s Family Fun Center in Wilsonville. I also love to take them to sporting events like Blazer games or even Seahawk games in Seattle. I love the fact the Hollywood has come to Portland. If you have good eyes and you don’t blink you can catch me in the movies Twilight, Untraceable and Extraordinary Measures. I have also made it on to some episodes of Leverage and a box cover for Logitech headphones.

I started working in radio when I was 16. Spent a few years in Portland working at various radio stations doing everything from Football & Basketball play-by-play to engineering work. In 2007 I went north to the city of Centralia (Washington) where I hosted the number 1 rated evening show on KITI-FM & AM.
I returned to Portland and started working at KPAM in March of 2009. In 10 years, I’ve worked for 14 different radio stations. It’s been an interesting ride.
When I’m not working, I enjoy travelling and working on my ancient Volvo cars.
