Edmonton, February 22, 2023 – 630 CHED, Edmonton’s #1 breaking news and talk radio station, is shaking things up with changes to its weekday lineup. Starting on February 27, J’lyn Nye will join Daryl McIntyre to co-host This Morning from 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., and Chelsea Bird will host Chelsea on CHED from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Moving J’lyn to mornings and Chelsea to afternoons gives the station the opportunity to further develop its impressive personalities and expose them to different audiences.

“Pairing J’lyn Nye with Daryl McIntyre feels like such a natural fit. Bringing these two exceptional talents together will transform morning radio in Edmonton,” said John Vos, Regional Program Director. “Having Chelsea Bird take the helm of our weekday afternoon show is going to be a treat for listeners and allow her to connect to audiences in the way only Chelsea can!”

A familiar voice in the morning, award-winning radio host Daryl McIntyre welcomes award-winning broadcaster J’lyn Nye to mornings. With a combined six decades of experience, this dynamic duo will kick off the day with the perfect blend of news and lively conversations.

“The morning shows on 630 CHED in Edmonton have been at the forefront of informing and entertaining listeners for decades,” said J’lyn Nye, co-host of This Morning. “I’m excited to move to mornings and bring the latest edition of the show to our listeners! I can’t wait to work with my friend Daryl McIntrye as we welcome friends, new and old, to This Morning.”

“I have so much respect for J’lyn Nye and this show will be next level for Edmonton radio listeners,” said Daryl McIntyre, co-host of This Morning. “Both of us are keen to reinvigorate the stories we tell and continue to build on our community ties.”

Calling Edmonton home for the past decade, award-winning broadcaster, Chelsea Bird, brings her on-air talents to the afternoon drive. The in-game host for the Edmonton Oilers, she was also a contestant on Big Brother Canada Season 7. As well-known personality in Edmonton, she will dazzle listeners with topical stories and fascinating guests making Chelsea on CHED the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

“630 CHED’s listeners are so very passionate about the radio station,” said Chelsea Bird, host of Chelsea on CHED. “Bringing a new show, with a new flavour, to afternoons will allow me to connect with new listeners.”
