I recently sent the photo on the left to radio announcer DC from KWXX and here was his response:

Mahalo, Big Dog! I love that picture, sir. I have another of us when you were in our studio a few years back when you stopped by for an interview. I treasure them both. Seriously, I really am honored to help with the Marathon and you can absolutely PENCIL ME IN for next year. No, make that NON-ERASEABLE FELT TIP MARKER me in for next year! ha ha ..

We’ll be in touch and riding with you in spirit through the adventure down Chemo Valley and see you safely up to Remission Ridge.

KWXX becomes Big Island Marathon’s Official Radio Station

DC and Big Dog team together for BIIM

KWXX, FM 94.7 and B97, have come on board as a gold sponsor of  the Big Island International Marathon and will be the official radio station for the March 20, 2011.

DC, well known for his morning show, will be the host of the BIIM Carbo Load Dinner Party on Friday, March 18 and will then be the voice announcing the marathon finishers during race day.
The BIIM, under executive director Wayne “Big Dog” Joseph, is excited to have such a winning team on board.
Thanks in part to DC’s and KWXX’s announcing of the BIIM early bird special the race has had the largest early registration in its 14 year history.
“We expect to have the marathon and half marathon races sold out sometime in January,” Big Dog said.
On behalf of my boss Chris Leonard and everyone at New West Broadcasting,we are deliriously happy to be aligned with the Big Island International Marathon. We’ve always had such great admiration for Big Dog and all the work he and his dedicated crew have done to build this into the premiere event that it is today. One of the Big Island’s most prestigious sporting events. Plus, we can’t wait to see our logos on all those race shirts. Ha!  Just kidding. Seriously, we are honored to be a part of the team.   Now we’re off to buy some decent running shoes…  Mahalo, Wayne!”  DC said.
