Market vet Jay Richardson is joining Sarah Kelly in mornings on CHUM Radio top 40 CHIQ (Curve 94.3)/Winnipeg, crossing the street from co-hosting afternoons at Corus rocker CJKR (Power 97). Richardson takes the Sennheisers formerly occupied by PD Andrew "Science" Long, who will come off-air and sleep a tiny bit later so he can focus on programming the station without requiring 16 cups of coffee every day.
"Having Jay join the team is a dream come true," says Long. "His unique blend of production, imaging, on-air skills and hometown pride will help make the show a truly original and entertaining destination for your morning."
For the past week, Jay has been introducing himself around the city in his new role by calling himself "New Guy" and doing everything from paying for people's gas and giving out hot chocolate at Winnipeg bus stops.
