Changes coming to KiSS Victoria… yes again.
Wednesday, Aug 7, I was informed that yet again changes were made to the on-air lineup at KiSS Victoria. When I went to investigate the listings for the morning show of Dez and Jay, and the afternoon show of Johnny Novak was removed from the website. Meaning that all three local hosts were no longer on the station. I later learned that Dez, along with Johnny and Jay were all let go, however Dez is still with Vancouver Rogers. When I reached out to the station for comment the response was just a basic reply. There have been changes made at the station. More information will be available soon. Interesting to note that on the long weekend, both Dez and Jay made country related posts on facebook. Aug 2 Jay posted a pic of him dressed up with a cowboy hat and a country look, with the caption Have fun at Sunfest Country, everybody!! Dez posted several pics and called Sunfest Country a new tradition and said it was the best weekend ever. My assumption when I saw the news today was that Rogers prepping a flip to country. It has long been rumoured that country would come to Victoria, and with Virgin radio in Victoria now it would make sense that the long-struggling KiSS would flip to country.
If the news is true and Johnny was let go, he came from PEI at the end of March. Let’s hope he lands back on his feet asap.
