Mornings will never be the same as JESSE DYLAN takes to the airwaves on August 6 with the launch of MOJO Radio Vancouver, the all-new AM730 talk radio station for men. The Jesse Dylan Show leads the program schedule with his special brand of mischief and unpredictability, sending a high-octane jolt through Vancouver’s airwaves weekday mornings from 6 – 10 a.m.
“It is with great excitement that we launch this raucous all-star lineup of provocative shows for men and it’s with mild fear that we unleash The Jesse Dylan Show on the citizens of Vancouver,” says Tom Plasteras, program director, MOJO Radio Vancouver. “Without a question, MOJO will be a stand out, unlike anything this city has heard before.”
After Dylan, the MOJO day continues with the antics of legendary Canadian personality SCRUFF CONNORS’ Nationwide, weekdays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Master of the phony phone call, Scruff’s new show Nationwide combines topical talk with witty bits and, of course, lots of phony phone calls. Mid-afternoon airwaves are filled with the frank, direct and brutally honest GLENN BECK. He has a remarkable way of getting the story behind the story and has people listening, howling, cheering, or crying foul.
The Glenn Beck Show is heard weekdays from 1 – 4 p.m. The ultimate guy’s guy, the unofficial mayor of Vancouver, and Canada’s #1 talent agent with clients such as Bryan Adams and Martina McBride, BRUCE ALLEN kick-starts the week every MOJO-Monday afternoon from 4 – 7 p.m. If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen, and be warned, this show is hot!
Then, MOJO listeners can tune in to hear Rush Hour Sports with veteran Vancouver sports personality BROOK WARD, long-time sports reporter RICK QUINTON and the latest news, weather and traffic with CLAUDINE GRANT. Cool and confident, Ward takes the pulse of the sports world, Tuesday – Saturday from 4 – 7 p.m. The evening programming begins with The Phil Hendrie Show weeknights from 7 – 10 p.m. A California native, Phil employs his acid wit to poke fun at the news and newsmakers of the day.
Sex is front and centre in the late evening with DR. DREW PINSKY and The Man Show’s ADAM CAROLLA as they discuss issues of the heart, gut, and groin. The two hours of no-holds-barred conversation airs on Loveline, Sunday – Thursday from 10 p.m. – midnight. The Loveline radio program has become a cult hit in the U.S. and has already transitioned to television (MTV). Sundays from 8 – 10 p.m., MATT DRUDGE, the one-man news bureau who broke the Monica Lewinsky scandal, covers political news and the business of Hollywood.
Diehard sports fans can find their weekends peppered with ESPN. ESPN Gameday Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon and ESPN Gameday Sundays from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. circumnavigate the wide world of sports, touching down in every NFL stadium with up-to-the-second scores and in-depth analysis.
MOJO Radio is also the proud official voice of the Vancouver Giants WHL games. Listen for the expert play-by-play commentary of JIM MULLEN and BILL WILM throughout the entire Giants season, including the 2002 WHL All-Star Game. Geared to males aged 25 – 54, MOJO fills a void in the Vancouver market by providing a forum for men to discuss and debate issues that matter to them, from health and fitness to cars, careers, beers, business, women and sports.
