Fraser Tuff & Christy Farrell

Christy & Fraser, the on-air duo that parted ways with Pattison Media’s NOW! Radio (CKPK-FM) in Vancouver earlier this year, have been tapped as the new co-hosts of the JACK FM morning show. Christy Farrell and Fraser Tuff were heard on Wild 95.3 (CKWD-FM) and 101.5 Today Radio in Calgary, before moving to Vancouver to help launch the NOW! brand in the market.

As previously reported, Carly & Jay move over from SONiC to a 4 – 8 p.m. time slot on JACK. Former afternoon drive host Jason Manning is being heard from 1 – 4 p.m., following “The Playing Whatever Lunch,” hosted by Meredith Geddes, who is hosting middays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Read more here.
