Pringle has more than 25 years’ experience on the airwaves of Portland radio, including time with KKJZ and mornings and middays on KINK.FM. His passion for blues music led to hosting KMHD/OPB’s Friday Freeway Blues and taking over for his mentor Bob “The Big BA” Ancheta on KINK.FM’s Sunday Night Blues after Ancheta’s retirement in 2011. In 2017, Pringle took his blues show to KGON where it remained on air for two years.
A longtime supporter of local blues, Pringle’s blues programs highlighted numerous Portland-area blues bands. In 2018 he was honored with a “George Page” Back What You Believe In” Muddy Award from the Cascade Blues Association for his work in promoting the local blues community.
