Michael Kuss to join Paul Brown Mornings on JACK FM Vancouver (Update!)

 

We’ve been tuned to the Jack Morning show out of Vancouver this morning for the announcement of a new morning crew, but nothing yet. However Michael Kuss, (former weatherman on Global and CTV Vancouver) let the cat out of the bag last night on his twitter account, saying starting Monday June the 26th, he and Paul Brown, (former long time host of Edmonton’s BEAR), will be the new morning hosts on Jack FM.

here’s the PRESS RELEASE

Kenny Jones

 

And the guy who’s been holding the fort since the release of Kiah and Tara Jean, is Kenny Jones, who’s been slotted into the afternoon show from 2pm to 7pm

Did they work together in Edmonton?

….where the current JACK PD competed against ’em!

Watching Michael on TV he never came across as a particularly witty or even funny guy but rather a very competent and knowledge weatherman. This should be interesting. Wish them luck.

sigh..

Edmonton and Vancouver are two different markets.. . good luck to them, but I feel like Micheal will regret leaving the weather gig…
Great, just what Vancouver needs, more male on air staff..

On a crappy, at best, station as Jack is, why did they fire the old crew and replace with new? Go all the way and do a much needed format refresh.

I’m guessing part of the move will see Kuss surface on the reprised Rogers evening news casts, come 2018.

Paul Brown did have a decent show in Edmonton, after a very childish and low brow run on the Zone (where he would have worked for Al Ford before). If Kuss is going to do weather in the evening, that’s a tough split, but it makes sense. Pooling resources. There’ll be some of that with the new Sportsnet Radio 650 as well.

But having heard Brown during his audition, I just don’t know how connected people will feel towards a dude who’s never lived here and will go on and on about the Pot scene and expensive housing. Big risk hires. I don’t rate the afternoon guy either.

The future of radio, in general is best expressed by what’s happening to iHeartRadio in the States.

Anecdotal reports from longtime listeners to the JACK programming in this time slot suggest that this show lineup is not working. It’s early days, but when you hear words such as “awkward” and “amateurish”, there may be a problem.

Just sayin’

Yup, tuned in this morning. Awkward and amateurish about sums it up. Talking about Apple’s emojis for your entire first hour ain’t gonna win it for you and reveals at best, little or no meaningful show prep. And someone should teach Kuss how to write and read a newscast. Small-market morning show at best. Won’t bother with it again.

That’s too bad. Michael Kuss is an excellent TV weather person. He’s knowledgeable and personable.

As a long time listener I never really took to Kiah but I found TJ a talented and personable presenter. This new team isn’t. Forced humour and lame prep leads to a rambling amateur production. The addition of harder rock tunes to the playlist is better covered by other stations. I miss Shore 104. Too much filler not enough killer. Is a Grade C- morning show for a major market, going to last more than 1 book? I hope not.
