Portland Loses Radio Icon Les Sarnoff.

KINK FM legend Les Sarnoff passed away Friday evening at Providence Cancer Center in Portland, Oregon after a courageous and inspiring battle with cancer.

"There is perhaps no single person more associated with any radio station than Les is with KINK. His professional contributions over his 30 year association with the station are inestimable. His style and attitude personified a great radio station, perhaps the most significant thread through KINK’s history. He has meant so much to so many with his positive energy, generous spirit and his warm and open presence."

Les started working evenings at KINK in 1977 and hosted the station's morning show for more than two decades.
