  1. With another sad showing for KISS and with JACK Vancouver now dead amid assorted format-change rumours–could it be “HeeHaw 103” is on the way ? It’s been well over a decade since anyone failed miserably with country music in Victoria, maybe it’s time to saddle up and give it another go.

  2. The Zone drop is surprising. Continued decline of CFAX and KOOL is not a surprise. Further CBC gains can be expected with no other credible news talk choice. Rogers will not risk country in Victoria. KISS’s future will follow what they do with Jack in Vancouver. Rehabilitation of the The Ocean begins with the arrival of Erin Davis . This is the station to watch.

  3. Kenny Jones, ex-of Rogers Vancouver is now back in Vancouver and was on JACK Friday afternoon. Where was he for a year or two ? Rogers Ottawa–on the COUNTRY station.
    Which may or may not mean anything,

  4. From Rogers changing JackFM to Kiss, so glad they are at the bottom. Can they keep there staff?
    The Ocean also changed there music format and staff. Really Rogers wake up.
    Not a good company to work for. Gone back to CKKQ the Q
