Andrew Grose Exits 630 CHED

from Andrew’s Facebook page…

April 2, 2019

I am no longer with 630 CHED. It’s been a great experience working with all of the fabulous people at Corus and Global especially my partner J’lynNye.

Thank you all for letting me part of your afternoons. #yeg #yegmedia

Great guy and best wishes Andrew. Too bad though thought you guys had a great show and enjoyed listening.

David McMaster

Andrew, what am I gonna listen to in the afternoon for now going to miss your humour and your insight I didn’t always agree with you and sometimes you’re really annoyed me but it’s like any friend you have they do the same things live long my friend

April 4, 2019 - 1:17 pm

Gary Golby

You were one of the few last good individuals to listen to on CHED. Going to miss you.
Best wishes in your future.

Will miss Andrew on the Afternoon show wish you all the best

April 4, 2019 - 1:34 pm

Jane Percy

Andrew, that’s my question too….. “What am I going to listen to in the afternoon Now”? Loved your show with J’lyn Nye . Enjoyed the rapport between the two of you. You made me laugh, you made me cry, you both were Real Life ….. which is hard to find these days! Thank you so much for sharing yourself with us. You were a much needed addition to CHED radio. Their loss!

April 4, 2019 - 2:23 pm


Gonna miss you!! Hope it’s for bigger and better things!

April 4, 2019 - 4:32 pm

Larry from Lago Lindo

I am saddened by this. I’ve been listening to the show since day one. I will continue to listen to CHED but afternoons just won’t be the same without both of them.

All the best Andrew in your future endeavors.

April 4, 2019 - 7:32 pm

Kim Switner

Thanks for the laughs over the years! Will miss listening to you and JLynn. All the best.

April 4, 2019 - 7:49 pm

Calvin Derr

Always made sure to listen to your show on ched,even when we moved to Kelowna I would stream your show just won’t be the same without you, good luck in your future thanks for everything

April 4, 2019 - 7:58 pm


That is very sad, I really enjoyed your show!!

April 5, 2019 - 5:02 pm


Wow. Through Primeau & Grose, Tencer & Grose and The Afternoon News I always enjoyed the Yan you brought to the Yin. My drive home will be lacking for the foreseeable future. I hope you’re back on the air soon. Until then, I’m Looking forward to seeing you perform locally!

April 5, 2019 - 5:20 pm

Paul Sveen

I’ve known Andrew Grose for decades. I’ve toured with Andrew, worked with him in clubs, at his charity, Laughing for Cancer, and The Edmonton Comedy Festival. I’ve always been amazed at his work ethic and effortless talent. I’ve loved everything Andrew has done and really loved his work on the radio. No matter the topic, Andrew spoke with ease, humor and grace. Andrew, you have been successful at everything you’ve done. I wish you the best my friend; if it’s anything like your previous efforts, your next chapter’s going to be spectacular.

April 6, 2019 - 8:49 am

Rose Deweerd

I loved the afternoon show, so many laughs. Going to miss Andrew and your funny take on subjects. All the best in future en devours!

April 6, 2019 - 11:32 pm


Sometimes in this “new” world — having a Master’s Degree is just too much money for radio. You were the only one on the Afternoon News who could interview with intelligence. Best in your future.

April 7, 2019 - 8:03 am


Sorry to hear Andrew & CHED have parted ways. He is one of the few on radio or tv to also have academic qualifications.. (Masters Degree) When Andrew interviewed guests he was able to ask hard questions. He could use fun as well on air. His on air partner remains as the usually scripted
“personality. ” Andrew could think on air. Best in your future endeavors.

April 8, 2019 - 1:41 pm


I’m sad to hear that Andrew is not continuing with 630 CHED. The combination with J’Lyn was such an incredible combination. I have never heard two personalities that worked together as well as they did. Best wishes for you Andrew, I hope you change your mind!

April 9, 2019 - 2:04 am

Ren Ostertag

Now the brain of the afternoon is gone ! And don’t us get started about the three “grinders” as we call them – Jespersen, Adler and “Drex”. OMG ! CHED is getting worse all the time !

April 9, 2019 - 3:43 pm


He got too cocky I’m glad to see him go , he was very rude to teeters who disagreed with him, I guess the complaints caught up with him

April 9, 2019 - 3:51 pm


Awe, that sucks that you are gone.😭
Always looked forward to listening to you on my break at work and on the drive home.
Enjoyed the laughs…
Will now need to listen to a different channel.

April 10, 2019 - 11:49 am


What took so long.
Biggest BSer I’ve ever heard
Proud of not being prepared!
CHED will find a KNOWLEDGEABLE replacement.

April 10, 2019 - 2:05 pm


Liked Andrew but the back and forth with J Lyne was sometimes hard to take. Maybe now will have more content on the show.

April 10, 2019 - 4:57 pm

Peter Stevenson

I enjoyed the show when Andrew first started. Unfortunately over the past 6 months, Andrew became too comfortable with his role and we got to see his real character. The negative attitude he displayed on air was not appreciated by all his listeners. His constant personal plugs for his comedy business should have had him axed years ago. I unfortunately found myself switching channels when Andrew came to the mic. I’m glad that CHED didn’t take him back when he begged for his job back.

J’lyn Nye does a great job on her own.

April 10, 2019 - 5:38 pm


He got too cocky would talk over everybody his colleagues got a bit fed up with his I’m better than you attitude and in the end the complaints from people who texted in and got verbally abused by Andrew were too much

April 10, 2019 - 5:43 pm


He was a dick

April 11, 2019 - 9:53 am

Ryan Martin

With the exception of Bob Layton and Danielle Smith in Calgary, corus radio on-air “talent” is made up of nothing but SJWs and preening liberals. No wonder corus stock is in the tank.

April 11, 2019 - 11:04 am


Bummer. Jlyn is boring now without you

April 11, 2019 - 1:03 pm


I just realized yesterday Andrew is no longer with CHED, I’m fine with that, and because he has stated (on air) he is used to negative attention, I don’t feel bad making my comment. This is a man who has consistently had to remind people that he has a business degree as well as an MBA. Not really sure why. What I remember; he told his story over and over again, bashed his x wife often on open air, ( I wonder what his children feel about this?) bragged constantly about himself, even about illegal activities such as running out in the dark of the night from a rental accommodation that he could not pay. Did he ever re-pay the owner? Don’t remember hearing that. He was unkind and ignorant about Women’s issues, ( I’m sure he must remember supporting Cat-Calling on the morning show) I think he believes because he has a wife and female children, he is supportive to women. I find this kind of disturbing. If the reason he is no longer with Ched is money related, for me he was being paid to much, to begin with, and did not enjoy him at all. An MBA does not make anyone a Relatable Radio Personality and really is no reason for a raise (if that is the issue). Relatable Radio Personalities have given their lives to their craft have spent years honing themselves to an ever-changing audience. They are gold, Bruce Bowie is a good example, not sure of his education and don’t care the guy was made for his job, goes for J’lyn as we… Both he and his attitude will not be missed by me. Finally got a chance to get this off of my chest……..

April 11, 2019 - 2:15 pm


Biggest BSer I’ve ever listened to.
Brutal, Uneducated, disrespectful, horrible listener, unprepared and proud of it are a few things that come to mind.
Enjoyed talking about himself.
Didn’t like when things were not about him.
I often felt the only reason he was in radio was to plug his comedy business.
It will be fantastic when CHED finds a replacement that’s prepared, researched and investigative.

April 11, 2019 - 4:34 pm


The final straw for me was when he talked about how hot his daughter is.😳

April 12, 2019 - 2:39 pm



April 16, 2019 - 3:56 pm


That is terrible, I will have to find a different station to listen to in the afternoon. The Andrew and J’lyn show was why I tuned in ☹️☹️☹️

April 16, 2019 - 8:31 pm


Truly upset Andrew is gone. His relationship with J’lyn was magical and entertaining. It’s also
Upsetting that people take blunt truth for arrogance or ignorance. He is educated and had every rite to speak his opinion or thought. That is talk radio. (Jespeson does it)If you don’t like don’t tune in. I wish Andrew well and I will still listen to J’lyn although I miss the comical edge the show had.

April 17, 2019 - 8:17 am

Thor God of Thunder

I was gutted when I read Andrew’s tweet, he was hands down one of the best radio personalities at CHED. Smart, funny, respectful, and has a level of depth of life experience unparalleled by his co-host or any of the other talk show hosts. I cannot listen to the Afternoon News now, no knock on J’Lyn but there is nothing interesting to listen to. Hope of hopes that Andrew returns but I’m afraid it is what it is. Best wishes to Andrew, he is a rare talent and at the end of the day this is a significant loss to CHED. Ratings will continue to slide . . .

April 24, 2019 - 8:15 am


Any idea as to why he resigned. The show is a complete snooze fest without him. CHED need to get J’Lyn a partner she is sinking fast without Andrew.

April 26, 2019 - 3:18 pm


I WAS a regular listener to the afternoon show before the departure of Andrew Grose. The biggest attraction was the comfort and the dialogue between him and J’Lyn. Together, they created a very balanced dynamic and it made for a completely entertaining show. I loved that it was sometimes very natural and “off the cuff”……..they became people that I could relate to and I found myself texting in (something I have never done before) to participate in the conversation with my “friends”. J’lyn is a very credible radio personality, but without Andrew the show just does not work. I have tried to hard to remain a loyal listener, but I now prefer to listen to a music station. I would like to think CHED would do anything and everything possible to negotiate Andrew’s return. He kept the show real and fun and I miss him enormously!!!

April 28, 2019 - 12:10 pm


So when is the book coming out. Sure miss the quick wit

April 29, 2019 - 8:28 am


Will miss you, you two were great together. On with your next chapter. All the best.

April 30, 2019 - 5:44 pm

B McAlpine

Has ched become a southern alberta religious station.. just askin’?

April 30, 2019 - 8:34 pm


I can only listen on Wednesday afternoons – I think Andrew in on vacay, hmmm where is he? Finally I clue in and am devastated. You and J’Lyn WORKED. Am so sorry to see you leave. I wish you the very best. I think what I liked the best when each of you genuinely laughed at the latest joke – camaraderie at its best!

May 1, 2019 - 6:41 am

Tony S

Andrew was the only thing that kept me listening in the afternoon. J’lyn on her own is simply brutal. And whats up with Kelsey Campbell ? Who in their right mind even thinks of giving this lady air time? Come on CHED, there have to be other talented people you can air. I’m pretty sure your ratings are confirming this.

May 1, 2019 - 6:17 pm


Good riddance. It’s about time to dump him
Tried to intimidate JLN.

May 1, 2019 - 6:17 pm


Miss youAndrew, still love J’lyn. All the best !

May 2, 2019 - 2:24 pm


Sorry to hear Andrew has left CHED. I have always enjoyed listening to the show. The serious vs the comedy made my day. Was easy to get my husband to listen to the show during our drive times. Life has enough negativity. Was great having some humour.
All the best to you and your family Andrew.

May 6, 2019 - 5:25 pm

Steve Horvath

I miss Andrew a lot! I don’t listen to the afternoon CHED anymore since he has left. J’lyn is still very credible on air personality, however not all that entertaining without Andrew. They had great chemistry together on the air. All the best with the next chapter of your life.

May 10, 2019 - 2:43 pm


Miss you Andrew . You and j lynn
Made my day every day . Both of you together always put a smile on my face. Please come back.

May 12, 2019 - 6:40 pm

Leah Johnson

Andrew, I am so saddened by this move. You and J’lyme has the best report. I will really miss you . Wish you well in your next endeavour

May 17, 2019 - 3:23 pm

Linda Johnson

For years I listened all afternoon and looked forward to 2 pm. I kept my radio on at work and some times laughed out loud. The drive home was priceless. I went on vacation, came back and Andrew was gone. I don’t know why and for those haters who said he bragged about his education, it was news to me that he had a degree so he didn’t overdo it. The show is NOT the same so I am exploring other options. J’Lyn just doesn’t get a chance to display her brand of humor on her own and the show is no longer interesting. Very bad move CHED.

May 18, 2019 - 11:14 pm


My husband and I both recently retired and looked forward to the afternoon show with J’Lyn an Andrew.
A real outlook on “true life” between both of them. We had so many laughs!!
CHED messed up big time! We no longer listen….sorry J’yn.

May 19, 2019 - 9:05 am

Larry Dufresne

A big vacuum left listening to CHED. Time to move away from talk shows and meditate with relaxing, soothing and replenishing music. Thanks Andrew for your humour and your willingness to not always tow the “politically correct” nonsense that pervades the airways today. Good luck and we look forward to hearing of your continued life adventure. 🙏❤️🤔🤭😳😃👍👏

May 21, 2019 - 3:45 pm


He was way over his head on radio and just went on and on about nothing relateable with the audience. Didn’t find him funny at all.

May 22, 2019 - 10:23 am


Just back from Europe and only heard JLN. I would tune in the odd time and would hear the odd good interview but mostly it was like listening to two old ladies bantering. Could never understand that if Andrew had an MBA why was he so stupid with his money. Cant stand JLN snorting like a pig so I won’t be listening . What’s left, CBC radio? God forbid.

May 22, 2019 - 2:21 pm


Unfortunately with Andrew gone, 630 has completely lost me as a listener. No knock on J, but Andrew was the last bastion of common sense CHED. He didn’t bow down to SJWs, and has a more of a libertarian outlook on life. Well it gives me extra time to catch up on my podcasts.

May 23, 2019 - 10:04 pm

Michael HG

I tuned in every day to hear Andrew. He was a true comedic genius. He talked about things normal people could relate to. All the best Andrew. Big loss for CHED.

May 24, 2019 - 10:03 am


Loved Andrew so sorry to see you leave . Also not a fan of JLN snorting or BRIAN HALL doing the pillow commercials!!!!! Love Bruce Bowie ‘s morning show👍

May 24, 2019 - 2:11 pm

Gay F Williams

So sorry to hear you have left 630 CHED .Really enjoyed your banter
With your cohost. The afternoon news is boring without you and I will not be listening any longer !

May 27, 2019 - 6:56 pm


This is NOT a comment on Andrew. I want to talk about J’lyn. I’ve known J’lyn for years as a co-worker and a friend – she is a serious kick ass journalist with wit, intelligence – a killer work ethic and a no bull shit attitude about life. Sorry Andrew has found himself on the outs with Corus – and I wish him well at whatever he does in life – but I would listen to J’lyn any time any day for witty, intelligent analysis.

May 29, 2019 - 9:11 am


I’ve been off work for a bit so didn’t realize Andrew was gone until this week as I ALWAYS listen to 630 Ched on the way home from work – well – until now. Andrew even got me tuning in to listen to Leslie Primeau after years of not. I understand some of the negative comments people have made above, but I see it more as Andrew’s schtick. Also, all the really funny people I know love being the centre of attention, so I think any comments to that are simply because that is the nature of a comedian. For me, I just thought his quips were funny, he brought out the lighter side of things, diffused tense topics with humor, and was probably more “real” and well-rounded that I find most radio people…. I found that he spoke well of Carol and was proud of his kids. His personal stories were funny and I don’t think he ever played himself off as perfect, just real. He was a great way to come home and helped me let the work day slip off my shoulders. I guess I’ll buy come CDs and listen to music. Will NOT be tuning into 630 Ched as I have always found it quite boring without Andrew or Dave Rutherford. Ciao!

May 29, 2019 - 6:14 pm


Just found Andrew is gone. Big loss for Corus
Some negative comments above but those are likely folks that disagreed with him and don’t like being called for it
Loved ending my day and the drive home listening the interchange between J’Lyn and himself.
Best of luck Andrew for wherever your path takes you now

June 4, 2019 - 4:17 pm


Lynda (Steel) it’s nice of you to defend your friend J’lyn but the fact remains the show is a complete bore without Andrew. J’lyn may be a “kick ass journalist” but she isn’t even remotely witty or entertaining. Andrew had a history of making his partners interesting and, in his absence, you can see how hard that was with J’lyn Nye. The chemistry of the 2 is what made that show work and now it simply doesn’t. Given that he has hinted as much on his twitter account, I suspect she also had something to do with his departure despite her tearful explanation immediately afterwards. The 2 are not following each other on any social media and we’ve yet to see pictures of the many fun times they’re having as friends around her fire pit. Andrew has also tweeted about having to pay lawyers. There’s definitely a LOT more to this story.

June 4, 2019 - 4:40 pm


You’re 100% right Brad. Andrew is putting on a “tell-all” comedy show next month and I’m hoping we’ll all find out then. I know he posted something about being stabbed in the back and then deleted the post probably on the advice of his lawyers. I’m also curious as to why he needs lawyers if it was his decision to leave. Regardless the show is now a cure for insomnia.

June 18, 2019 - 5:31 pm


Have been listening to the afternoon show with j and Andrew for year and loved it. I give j the benefit for a few weeks and found it very boring. Sorry j but Andrew carried the show. I will not be listening to the show anymore

June 24, 2019 - 1:19 pm


Gonna Miss Andrew – made the show interesting. J”Lyn Nye on her own BORING. She needs a partner to interact with. 630 CHED can’t you find someone to interact with JL??

June 24, 2019 - 2:32 pm


I’ve been gone a while and just discovered Andrew is gone. All I can say about CHED now is borrrrring!

June 24, 2019 - 7:43 pm


Here is the link to buy tickets to Andrew’s tell all comedy show in Edmonton next month. He sold one out and added another. I’d say a lot of people want to know what really happened and it looks like we’re going to find out. Hopefully without him getting sued.

June 27, 2019 - 9:12 am


Anyone have an inkling if/when there will be a replacement, or they gonna blow up the format?

July 3, 2019 - 12:39 pm


CHED removed the “Entertainment when you need it” part of the intro for the show which accurately reflects how boring the show is now. J’lyn Nye on her own cannot survive and the longer the station waits to do something with the show the more listeners realize just how little she had to do with how good the show was with Andrew. Andrew has moved on and is back to full time comedy so he’s not coming back. The 2 little girls that replace J’lyn when she’s away show how little CHED cares about that time slot. My guess would be they will broadcast out of Calgary during that time slot in the fall and dump Nye.

July 11, 2019 - 6:06 pm


I really enjoyed Andrew as he was one of the few real people on radio. As far as his co-host went she just constantly put him down. I will not listen anymore now the Andrew is gone. Wishing you all the best Andrew

July 19, 2019 - 7:59 pm


Did anyone (Bob?) get to his show and find out the details on his leaving? I couldn’t make it and really would like to know the back story if anyone can share.

July 20, 2019 - 11:23 am


We were at the sold out 8 p.m. show where the audience gave him 2 standing ovations. It was a very well put together evening that included an explanation that satisfied everyone’s curiosity followed by an hilarious comedy show. I had never seen his live show and, as good as he was on the radio, his stand-up is even better. After the show he stood in the lobby and talked to every single audience member that wanted to meet him. From what we saw Andrew has a huge amount of support in Edmonton. As for saying what happened; it’s his story to tell. I don’t think anyone wants to take the chance of misquoting and causing him legal issues. I will say that he didn’t dump on his previous employer or the people he worked with although he did expose one as a phony.

August 1, 2019 - 11:38 am

Richard Wright

Andrew Sorry this has taken so long, I was always wondering what happened to you and still don’t. I’m very disappointed that your off the show as you were the show. I don’t know how it will survive with out you. You’re an inspiration to many of us and wish you the very best.

August 3, 2019 - 8:23 pm


I used to listen most afternoons but find the show most boring now.

August 5, 2019 - 8:08 am

Bob Hanscom

For some reason Ched Radio is not reacting to the negative comments regarding J’lyn Nye , and allowing her to literally ruin the program . I have turned the Ched Afternoon News off completely and will no longer listen . It is the most dry , boring and disinteresting program on radio !!!! I had enough and have now switched to music progams and others . Had listened to Ched Radio for several decades , and have now switched to what I call entertainment ……… Things must change , or you will lose the majority of your audience !!

August 6, 2019 - 6:11 pm

Kris h

Very disappoint you can’t offer any insight. I agree with everything you said, however I don’t understand why you won’t tell us? It’s no different than watching a movie and me telling you the end… I can’t be sued for that.

August 15, 2019 - 8:16 am


This move is for the better.
Generally Ched gets it right.
But one point I’ve never understood , he seemed like a guy who though he was a lot better than he really was. I mean we keep hearing him tell us he is a “Professional comedian”. Well I listen to a lot of comedians and find they are generally funny people, they talk funny , sound funny and have a way of telling stories naturally funny. This guy just wasn’t naturally funny. But he keeps telling us “I’m a comedian”. By listening to him I wouldn’t drop a dime to listen to him in a comedy club , I’m sure he’s a very low level comedian . Next guy 630 chef has to gas is Jesperson- he does not reflect the voice of the Alberta listening audience. He seems to. be a liberal at heart. CHED please get a proper Alberta conservative personality, no more left leaning voices.

August 16, 2019 - 8:24 am

Thor God of Thunder

This was in no way a move for the better. Andrew brought out the best in guests, callers, and co-hosts especially J’lyn. Have you been listening since Andrew was skidded? J’lyn is a lovely person I’m sure but her talk show skills are beyond terrible. I don’t even know where to start and the last show I tuned into she was speaking about Edmonton weather for close to half an hour. I can’t wait until she has a hard hitting piece on how long it takes paint to dry. I miss Andrew’s sense of humor and the life experience and depth he brought to the show. Now the show has depth as thick as a sheet of paper. I will agree with your point about Jesperson even My Pillow had the sense to know when to flush a turd.

August 18, 2019 - 8:57 am


In a nut-shell……the show is not anything now since Andrew left, sadly!!!

All the best Andrew!!

August 24, 2019 - 7:40 am


I really miss Andrew too. I enjoyed the two of them together and it’s just not the same. It’s not even talk radio anymore, she never takes calls. Ryan Jesperson is the same, he talks to his guests but that’s it. I enjoyed listening to the listener’s views on the topics. I don’t know if this has anything to do with his leaving but there was an episode of the weekend show they did with Jesperson that might have been considered to be controversial. After that show aired and a few days later he was gone. I can no longer find that episode in the archives, Ched has taken it down. I wonder if there is a big shakeup at Ched and Global. Bruce Bowie is retiring, Shaye Ganam and Chelsea Bird are starting a morning show. I will give them a chance. I hope for some differing perspectives that is missing from talk radio.

August 27, 2019 - 6:18 am


Since Andrew left The Afternoon News with J’Lyn is painful to listen to. J’Lyn is way out of her depth and is drowning doing the show solo. The show is completely devoid of personality. I have a feeling that she might have played a role in Andrew’s “resignation”.

September 18, 2019 - 2:13 pm


Andrew , it is not the same without wit. Hope all is well and you are in good health as I don’t get any updates since changing my station.l

September 20, 2019 - 4:54 pm


Interesting. When Andrew took to the mike so many years ago I enjoyed listening to him, he was humble fresh and humorous. He bowled over Primeau and then Tenser. Over the years it changed and he became very opinionated and very righteous. He became better than everyone else and would hog the airtime from Jlyn. At that point I stopped listening because of his new aire of arrogance and opinionated righteousness. And now months later having tuned in for curiosity I find he’s gone. Got too big for his boots, he did. Powerless with out a microphone. Top tip. Don’t send texts or emails at 4 am., and keep your head in check!!
Ched listener since the early 70’s

Rotterdam Roger

Interesting, Sterling , that you claim not to know that he was gone, but purport to know some inside knowledge about emails. Best to stick to one stream of lies at a time. Without Grose hogging the airwaves, now we can all hear what a snooze-fest Jlynn is.

September 25, 2019 - 12:00 pm


was log time listener of ched afternoon show . have not listened since andrews departure

September 28, 2019 - 11:56 pm

Just saying

I don’t even live in Edmonchuk and had never heard of Andrew Grose before today. However, he seems like a Donald Trump like polarizing figure in which people either love or hate the guy…If I were Andrew Grose, I would start a new radio talk show at some other radio station, even an internet podcast would work. If 50 people claimed he is an interesting guy, and only three say he is arrogant, then, there has to be more to his leaving CHED than the fact he was arrogant? If arrogance, alone, was a reason for dismissal, then most of you in radio would get fired on the spot !

October 8, 2019 - 10:25 am


Anyone have any info if a replacement…..going solo….blowing it up?…..IMO needs help…..

October 10, 2019 - 7:59 pm

Larry from Lago Lindo

Daryl McIntyre might be looking for a new gig in radio. Would make a fine co-host.
