RADIO STATION MINING FOR ORR

Disc jockeys looking for a high-profile, on-air colleague have offered lame duck Gov. Kay Orr a job.

"One caller said, 'Well, the governor will be without a job,'" said Roger Olson, a member of the morning team on KXKT-FM, a Top 40 station in Omaha.

So after clearing it with management, the DJs sent a letter offering her a position. The Republican governor, who lost a close race to Democrat Ben Nelson in November, has said she wants to remain in Nebraska rather than accept a job in Washington.

A spokesman for Mrs. Orr, Doug Parrott, said he didn't know what the governor's reaction would be, adding: "I guess the governor would have to evaluate it with other options available, and I'm sure she'd be flattered by the offer."
