Biggs/Barr leave CHTZ for CHEZ

Has this been posted already?

Hits FM St Kitts morning show Biggs & Barr are jumping from Bell to Rogers Ottawa CHEZ, according to Toronto Mike.  Another blow to CHTZ.

It is funny, on Chez 106 they are still showing Doc and Woody as the hosts...so, any move isn't happening yet...

Doc and Woody have been on Chez FM for at least 20+ years as the morning team, they are quite good actually...

Here is the list of shows...on Chez, no mention of Biggs and Barr

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

Doc and Woody have announced their retirement, but they won't host their last show at CHEZ until late June.

Re: Biggs/Barr leave CHTZ for CHEZ

Today (Friday, June 14) was the final day for the show, and the hosts went on sister station CKTB to remark how grateful they were to Bell Media to be able to do a week of farewell shows, especially since they were going to a competitor (albeit in another city.) As far as I could tell, they were doing their normal thing, although they made sure to note that every bit was "the last time" they'd do it.

It does not appear a permanent replacement has been announced yet.

Could the station have found a new morning show? I was just on the HTZ website, and looking at the on-air schedule for next week, it shows "New Show" from 5:30-9am. What exactly that means I don't know. An actual in studio show? A beaming in of another Bell radio show? Some syndicated morning show?

For now, it looks like Ashleigh is permanently in the daytime slot after the morning show, leaving evenings. The Adam and Joey show isn't breaking up necessarily. They've been doing mornings since Biggs & Barr left. Right now the schedule shows Adam back to his afternoon shift, but only from 2-3pm. Then it's Adam and Joey from 3-7pm, and then Joey solo from 7-11pm, taking over Ashleigh's evening position.

The new morning host is Matt Soper from K-Rock in Kingston. His co-host is Carl Brown, with whom he hosted mornings a few years ago in BC. They start next Tuesday.
