Seems like there are changes with the Jazz FM morning show

Mark Wigmore has been filling in for Garvia Bailey and now this morning they are calling it "Take 5" with Mark Wigmore...

The website hasn't been updated, but Garvia's name is not on the schedule...

Changes abound it seems!

 


The world would be so good if it weren't for some people...

They also moved Bee's World from 7:40 AM to 10:30. I will miss it.

Re: Seems like there are changes with the Jazz FM morning show

Website now updated - and Wigmore is officially morning drive host.  He's also referring to the show on air as "Take 5" - a new name of the morning show.  Bailey is out.   Could it be a budget issue with Jazz FM?  Reduce a full salary? As their core audience ages - and many are senior citizens on fixed incomes ....are there as many donors?   With the ad market pretty flat - are their ad revenues treading water?   Wigmore has been for a long time, their head of fund raising and sponsorships.   Seems logical in a budget crunch that he'd be doing double or triple duty, including Arts Toronto.
