  VANCOUVER (June 19, 2017) – Beginning Monday, June 26, Vancouver listeners will hear a fresh, new sound on the airwaves when JACK 96.9 debuts all-new morning and afternoon drive shows. Making sure audiences get up on the right side of the bed, The Paul and Kuss Show kicks things off Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. PT, and Kenny Jones, airing weekdays from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. PT, will entertain Vancouverites in the afternoon.  Waking up morning radio audiences in Canada and the U.S. for more than 20 years, Paul Brown has earned a loyal fan base. From 2003 to 2016 he anchored one of Edmonton’s top-rated morning radio shows, entertaining listeners with his fun, and sometimes controversial antics. In addition to his broadcast career, Brown has dabbled in stand-up comedy, opening for big-name acts such as Tom Green, Rob Schneider, and Damon Wayans. Hailing from Coquitlam and Victoria, Michael Kuss is known throughout B.C. and Canada, most recently for his work as a meteorologist for local news. A veteran TV and radio personality, Kuss has held a variety of roles throughout his career, including anchoring sports and news, and hosting a daytime talk show. “Paul’s playful and quirky sense of humour, paired with Mike’s down-to-earth approach, will shake up and wake up Vancouver mornings, and is sure to be a hit with JACK 96.9 listeners,” said Al Ford, Program Director, JACK 96.9. No stranger to the JACK 96.9 family, Kenny Jones returns to the station, after recently hosting the morning show on Country 101.1 in Ottawa. With a broadcast career spanning more than 15 years, Jones has worked across Canada. A Canuck and Lions fan at heart, Jones is excited to return to Vancouver with his wife, and two kids. “It’s an awesome feeling to have Kenny back at JACK 96.9. Throughout his show, listeners will have plenty of opportunity to call in and interact with the fan-favourite host as they wind down their day,” said Ford. Listeners can tune into JACK 96.9 anytime by listening on-air, online at, and through the JACK 96.9 and Radioplayer Canada apps.
