Corus Radio has announced that Willy in the Morning, the Rock 101 (CFMI-FM) Vancouver-based morning show that expanded to Q107 (CFGQ-FM) Calgary last year, will also be heard on Edmonton’s CHUCK @ 92.5 (CKNG-FM), starting later this month.

“The Willy in the Morning team is known for their sharp-wit, sense of humour and great energy,” said Ronnie Stanton, Regional Program Director, Western Canada, in a release. “We can’t wait to introduce the show to CHUCK listeners on August 24.” 

CHUCK @ 92.5 has been without a morning show since earlier this year when the station dropped syndicated Seattle morning show, Brooke & Jubal (now Brooke & Jeffrey).

The Willy in the Morning team, helmed by Willy Percy, Kim Seale and Alece Anderson, will air on CHUCK @ 92.5 from 6 – 9 a.m. weekday mornings. Together for the last seven years, the highly-rated show helped lead Rock 101 to a 14.3% share with women 25-54 in the Spring 2020 PPM ratings and an overall 8.1 share, 12+. The morning show was #2 in the Vancouver market with an 11.2 share A25-54. Q107 garnered an overall 4.4% market share, while CHUCK @ 92.5 finished the last ratings period with a 3.9 share, 12+.
