Vernon Matters

November 18, 2020

A big shakeup at Vernon’s other radio station today.

Sun FM has let go of its morning show hosts, Betty Selin and Jehrett Schafer, and its afternoon host, April Kimble.

Selin had been with the station for several decades.

UPDATE: The station, which is owned by Bell Media, will be changing to a country format.

The current format is contemporary hit radio.


  1. So It’s Curtain Call For Sun Fm is Officially Done In Vernon For Good After Nearly Twenty Years it’s Gonna Be Down Two Sun Fm Left In British Columbia

  2. Wow Betty Selin gone….she been there forever. She was in management so has been privy to many layoffs over the years. I’m guessing not this one…. A very good broadcaster anchor/reporter.

  3. Well, I am of the 940 CJIB era and long for those “simpler days”. I cannot see how a country format would go over big with today’s mix of Vernon-ites.

    Just a small anecdote. I remembe way back when, it was a Friday or Saturday night and we were “pulling Mainers” and the dj for the night on CJIB was complaining that there was a fly buzzing around his booth and decided he would have a call-in with a Name the Fly contest. The winning name was “Zipper”.

  4. Pulling mainers !!!! When gas sold by the gallon , records were 2:45 long and people on the radio
    made GREAT radio out of things as simple as insects. R.I,P Zippy. :- }

  5. @larry fine Got me to thinking about paraphrasing a wonderful song talking about the end of an era:

    “Bye, bye, Ca-na-dian fly”

    Larry, if you were there, then you would remember “The Hoop” with his 69 Camaro, The Struthers Brothers who had a ’67 Dodge Charger fastback that they painted metalflake gree with chrome reverse rims, and the brothers that had a Javelin SST and a ’68 AMX. That AMX had a wicked 3/4 race cam that made the headers “duh duh duh” when stopped at intersections.
