Phoenix Radio Station Offers Bristol Palin Job. Station Director Says it's Not a Publicity Stunt -- Whatever You Say, Brah

Bristol Palin's days of being used apparently didn't end when her baby-daddy said sayonara -- a Phoenix radio station has officially offered the publicity-hound daughter of John McCain's 2008 running mate an on-air job alongside the station's morning show host.

But don't worry, it's (ahem) not a publicity stunt, says Ron Price, the station director for Clear Channel's Mix 96.9 (KMXP-FM).

"It is 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," Price says.

In case you missed it (or just tried to forget), Palin inexplicably bought a home in Maricopa last month.

It was rumored that she was planning to attend Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication -- a rumor the school's dean emphatically denies.

"Since Christmas Day, hundreds of news reports have been circulating that Bristol Palin is coming to Arizona State University, and specifically the Cronkite School. These reports are 100 percent incorrect. Ms. Palin has neither enrolled nor applied to ASU, and to the best of our knowledge, has made no contact with the university or the school," Chris Callahan, the school's dean, says in an e-mail.

But who needs J-school when broadcasting jobs in this town apparently just fall from the sky (if you're mom's the darling of the Conservative movement and you're a reality TV star, that is).

In a letter to Palin, the station cites her "natural talent" as the reason they want her on board.

If anyone out there on the interwebs can tell us which of Palin's "natural talent(s)" makes her qualified for this job, we're all ears. Otherwise, contrary to Price's claims, we're callin' this what it is: a publicity stunt.

Check out the radio station's letter to Palin below. Note: it basically says she'll get paid a "competitive" annual salary for doing roughly no work -- as you can see in the second-to-last paragraph, Palin wouldn't even necessarily have to report to an office.

Ted Williams, the homeless guy has a real radio voice, which he developed through studying and working. Bristol does have a natural talent, but it isn't in speaking. When we saw her on Dancing with the Stars, her vocabulary was limited to "That sucks," and wanting to give the middle finger to America. That must be some classy radio station if they need another shock jock.

Well, looks like one of the "Nuts and sluts" family members is off to the State full of racist Nuts and sluts. She won't last long - she's to crazies for even the crazies of Arizona.

Total publicity stunt, they weren't looking for publicity just like the craptastic sheriff doesn't look for publicity at every turn.

If for some reason they are serious, I am sure that makes the kids at the school of broadcasting really excited to know that someone with zero experience just got their dream job. Good times.

Hell, she probably paid cash with that gig from DWS, especially since she stayed on so damn long. From what I've heard, it was like watching a hobbled rhinoceros do the Lambada...

Chuck: Apparently all you need to do to get a radio job is convince your mom to run for vice president. Then, nobody has to like you and you'll still get yourself a "competitive" salary. It's pretty simple when you think about it. Glad I could help.
