“We are very excited about the pairing of Nelson & Crystal as the Fish continues to help make a difference in Portland”, says Chris Kelly, OM/PD of The Fish. Crystal commented, “Danny Gokey’s song says it best, “Tell your Heart to beat again!” That’s how I felt when I was asked to join the morning team of 104.1 The Fish. Words cannot express how excited I am to be a part of inspiring our listening audience each morning through words of encouragement, music and of course a little laughter! I look forward to returning to Portland, a city I’ve been blessed to call home and the opportunity to join our listeners on this journey we call life! “
