Pattison Calgary changes?

Postby Rocky » Thu Nov 17, 2016 6:11 pm

Has there been some changes at Calgary's KOOL 101.5? I notice on the website there is no sign of the morning show.

Just wonderin'.

A search for Now 101.5 works because the word NOW is in this tag line on the KOOL home page: "Listen Live to Calgary's Hits! 101.5 KooL FM from the 90s to now."

Just looking now (pardon the pun), I see Danny Kid listed some places on the web site as Afternoon Drive and others where he is listed, all alone, as Morning Man.

Brad Dryden (ex-Kool Morning man) confirmed on his Facebook page that he is no longer employed by Patterson.

Here is the complete rundown from this morning's Broadcast Dialogue:
The Jim Pattison Broadcast Group has shuffled the deck at its Calgary stations 101.5 Kool FM (CKCE-FM) and Wild 95.3 (CKWD-FM). Kool FM morning show hosts Brad Dryden and Michelle Yi are no longer with the station. Dryden had been in the position since Aug. 2015 after eight years on the C100 (CIOO-FM) Halifax morning show. Yi previously hosted Kool FM mornings with Tarzan Dan after stints at CHUM-FM Toronto and Sonic 104.9 (CFUN-FM) Vancouver. Mike Shannon is also out as program director at Wild 95.3. Effective early December, Christy Farrell and Fraser Tuff move from Wild 95.3 mornings to 101.5 Kool FM mornings. Heather Prosak signs on as the new Wild 95.3 program director and morning show host. Heather leaves Bell Media Winnipeg where she’s morning co-host and PD at 99.9 Bob FM (CFWM-FM). Jonathan Best joins the team as morning show co-host, APD and music director. Best was most recently with Newcap Edmonton. Now! (CKNO-FM) Edmonton PD Mark Hunter adds programming duties for Kool FM.
