Interview with Kevin Flink on the Radio Survivor Podcast


Steve Naganuma – Broadcast Program Teacher

I was born and raised in Oregon.  I attended Vestal grade school, Benson High School and Portland State University.


I spent 30 years working for some of the top Portland radio stations including K103, Z100, KUPL, Q105, Magic 107, KYTE-AM & FM, Z-Rock 1010AM and KGAR.  I have taught radio broadcasting part-time at Mt. Hood Community College from 1982-1997.


I returned to Benson High School in 1997 to teach the sophomore radio broadcasting class.  I was very excited to return to Benson’s outstanding KBPS broadcasting program.  My first paid job was a part-time weekend announcer at KPAM 97.1 FM while I was a junior at Benson High School.  In 2004, I retired from commercial radio to focus on my teaching career.


Here are audio MP3s of Z100, K103 and KUPL:
