Will Bristol Palin join Arizona's Mix 96.9?Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- Clear Channel has offered Bristol Palin a job co-hosting a radio show with Mathew Blades on Mix 96.9 and Blades said odds are looking good that she'll take it.
Blades talked to Tara Hitchcock and Kaley O'Kelley about it Tuesday morning.
Palin, the oldest daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, bought a house in Maricopa last year and reportedly has registered for classes at Arizona State University.
Blades said he and some of the radio station's managers met Palin on Friday.
"I was really impressed with our meeting," Blades said.
"I walked in [to our meeting] with absolutely no expectations. ... At the end of the day, if she's going to do this, if we're going to do this radio job together, it's got to be about the everyday stuff that we connect on."
Blades said he and Palin, who finished third on the most recent season of "Dancing with the Stars," talked about their families, her son, hockey and what it's like living in the Valley.
"She loves Maricopa. She loves her house," he said. "She loves that the weather is sunny every single day, which is a huge contrast to where she's from."
While nothing is settled and Palin, 20, has not commented publicly on the offer, Blades believes the odds are pretty good that she'll accept.
"I hate to throw out a number, but I'm leaning toward more yes than no," he said. "I think that it could be interesting."
