It sure looks as though, come 8 Friday morning, that Lite 92.9 goes a way, to be replaced by a Jack FM format, where they play anything at any time. You may recall that KOOL FM also had the "We play anything" slogan. This new format will likely be older music with some new stuff mixed in.
(Oh, my friend Wayne Harrett is the one making these predictions. I agree with them. They're not that far off from what I was predicting, but I'm happy to give Wayne full props. )
Griff and Caroline will be the hosts of said morning show. I don't know if Rogers will bother to staff other day parts. KOOL FM didn't. Why staff other day parts when they can save a bunch of bucks and just play wall-to-wall music?
The question then becomes: what does The Wave do? If they want to protect the market share they have secured, then they will have to throw some money at their format, lest Griff and Caroline just re-acquire their market share. Probably exactly what Rogers wants.
I still don't know who Floyd's new co-host will be on Live 105. I will have to find out along with everyone else. It's unfortunate that the news about Chris and Lisa and Lite 92.9 is taking away from Floyd's excellent news of becoming the lead co-host at Live.
And, I'm tapped out. I have nothing else to write about impending changes in the radio market in Halifax. You're probably happy about that, and want me to resume running candid pictures of Newbie sitting on my lap.
Have a large evening.
See you tomorrow.
