“The culture of live, late-night radio is unique, unifying, and unpredictable,” said Larry Gifford, National Director, Talk Radio, Corus Entertainment. “I am excited to hear the Canadian conversations and stories shared with Shane as he becomes part of the late-night experience in cities and towns across the country.”

Shane Hewitt has spent more than 25 years hosting radio and connecting with Canadians. His career has taken him across the country from Calgary to Sudbury, Brockville to St. Catharines and back to Calgary again. Before that, he grew up in Port Alberni, B.C., and Fort McMurray. Shane is a dad and an entrepreneur with a love of conversation and thoughtful exchange of ideas – it is this perspective that he brings to The Shift every night.

A staple for audiences since January 2018, The Shift is a distinctly Canadian program with a loyal and growing audience that tunes in for candid, thought-provoking and news-worthy stories from across the country. Created by Corus Entertainment, the show continues to be the go-to source for late-night banter and lively conversations for Canadians. 

The weekend edition of the show, The Shift with Jawn Jang airs from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. EST on Saturdays.

Jang began his radio career in large and small markets on FM radio before debuting on AM radio as a sports talk host in 2017. In addition to hosting The Weekend Shift, he is a regular contributor on-air at 980 CKNW in Vancouver. Jang was born in Seoul, South Korea, but immigrated to Canada in 1994. Listeners can expect two things when they tune in: the show is always inclusive and always proudly Canadian.

  1. The right move great to have Shane as the new host wonder if he’ll take the show to Hawaii ( Ha Ha )
    Plus great to have and listen to Jawg Jang he is a great addition

  2. Steve,

    I travel out to office very early each day and usually listen to SXM but have sometimes caught the last bit of the CKNW re play at about 4:30 am .

    Only needed to hear less than 5 minutes on two occasions and I was cured, I listen no more .

    Your thoughts are 100% correct, a severe case of TDS !!!

    Was it him that said, “Please do not confuse me with the facts I have already made up my mind” ?

  3. I’m so happy that Shane is the permanent host of the Shift and Jawn on the weekend is a bonus. My only hope now is that Eric Chapman is not used for replacement for vacations. The show has a professionalism that he does not bring to the show, if he acted like he does with Linda Steele it would be completely different.
    Looking forward to the show!!!!

  4. Sorry ‘NW, you lost me. Both are amatuerish at best with zero meanigful content and depth, and sounding like they’re just glad to have a job.

  5. Shane and Jawn . I listen to Shift for years. I was sad to see Drex go, but you two are great. I like how you handle your interviews and entertaining us night owls. My radio is tuned to CKNW in day time too. Good luck. Hilda

  6. All FAKE NEWS media will be DEAD within 3 years once Trump wins. Yes….you heard it right. PA is about to swing because of the unconstitutional RIGGED votes.

    I stopped listening to all FAKE NEWS November 3rd. Can’t wait to see how low their ratings have gone down in the last half of the year.

  7. Wgat was the company name of the PLAID semi truck u were looking at. I want to google and see it. Hard to tell what company u were saying over the ragio.. Please & Tyvm.

  8. Hello, I just wondered where I could find listing of music played during the shows. I particularly liked the last song played during January 8, 2021 show.


  9. Sorry to reply so late– Appreciate all of the kind words and even the not so kind ones! We’re always learning, always looking for ways to improve and constructive criticism comes with the nature of what we do for a living.

    Brian– The name of that baby blue plaid semi-truck company was “Rosenau Transport” and if you google that, you should find this very impressive truck!

    Angie– The name of the song that you may be referring to is called “Black to Gold” by Dear Rouge. It’s the song I play to sign off on the weekend show.

    And Brenda– You’re not wrong in that I’m glad to have a job. These are tough times for many industries, not just radio, and every single day there are many Canadians waking up worrying about how they’re going to make ends meet, or what they’re going to do next for work. I’m privileged to be a part of a show like this and the least I can do is provide some thoughtful entertainment for our nighthawks who join us every night. Whether or not I sound amateurish (at best) is ultimately left for each listener to decide, but if you have suggestions on meaningful content, you’re welcome to email me at ja**@it*********.ca— Let’s make it work for you if we can!

    Thank you!
