Was it talent, or was it habitual listening to a certain radio station. I'll take the latter. Vic Ives thought he could replicate his success at KEX on his own radio station. But as insurance, he took Hollister with him to KVIX. Hollister could never replicate the numbers on Ives' station.

The same goes for KPAM hiring Bob Miller, Hollister's successor at KEX. Miller's ratings on KPAM never came close to what he'd had on KEX.

KISN tried to steal KGW's morming numbers by hiring Uncle Don Wright away from Super 62. Again, it didn't work. In fact, a Portland radio legend was created when Craig Walker repleaced Wright.

The only example I can think of stealing talent ever working in Portland was when K103 took Walker and John Erickson from KGW. And that has more to do with the death of AM radio than pilfering talent.
