Bristol Palin Meets With Phoenix Radio Station About On-Air Job
publicity stunt job offered to Bristol Palin to co-host a morning radio show in Phoenix? About that...
Palin's reportedly met with management at Clear Channel's Phoenix-based Mix 96.9 (KMXP-FM) about the gig and apparently "seems interested."
If you missed it (or tried desperately to forget) Palin inexplicably bought a house in Maricopa last year. Considering there are no jobs with the sole requirement of dancing with "stars," Palin's apparently lookin' for work.
To boost ratings Because she's so talented, the station offered the daughter of the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee an on-air job with morning man Mathew Blades.

At the time of the offer, certain it was a publicity stunt, we instantly called BS. However, the station's director, Ron Price, insisted it wasn't a publicity stunt, but rather "an official offer to a very well-known personality, who may be looking for a new career in what will most likely be her new home state."
Palin was on the Bob & Mark Show, on an Anchorage radio station on Friday and says she's actually planning to pursue the gig.
"I'm working on a few different projects," she said. About the KMXP gig, she added, "I'm going to meet with them and see if it's actually legitimate and see if I would like the guy I would be on air with."
Today, the Associated Press is reporting that Palin met with station brass and "seems interested."
Below are the terms of the offer made to Palin by the station. If you're working your butt off to land a job in the radio biz, don't look at the offer letter -- it's sickening.
