Drex took the helm of the morning show in December 2020, following a three-year run as the host of Corus Radio late night network show, The Shift with Drex. He was accompanied on JACK FM by his former The Shift producer Bob Addison, who went by the moniker “No Fun Bobby,” and Lena Schulman, who was formerly heard on Byrnes Communciations’ stations in Niagara Falls.

JACK FM afternoon drive host Jason Manning is expected to be heard in mornings on the station for the foreseeable future.

Corbet Rutzer, who had served as the Content Director and Music Curator for both JACK FM and SONiC (CKKS-FM), is also no longer with Rogers. Rutzer had been in his current role since 2016, in addition to a previous stint as JACK FM’s Music Director from late 2010 to 2012.
