Over the past 7 years my wife Kitty and I have gotten married, built our very first home, had a baby and have enjoyed every single minute of our lives in Victoria. There was only one thing lacking and that was more time with our family. And that’s the reason we’ve made the very difficult decision to leave Victoria for the mainland so that our little 2 year old monkey can grow up closer to her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.


I’m moving a little down the dial to our sister station in Chilliwack, Star 98.3. It’s a station I’m very familiar with and have worked closely with over the past 14 years. With this move, I’ll still be staying within the Rogers Media family which is great and we’re definitely going to make a few trips over here every year to visit with friends, surf in Tofino, ski at Mount Washington and continue to explore this amazing island.


Susan Knight, who is no stranger to Victoria, will be the new Program Director of Ocean 98.5 and your Afternoon Host! She’s funny, witty, smart and LOVES Victoria. I really think you’re going to have fun with her. I’ll introduce you to Susan on the air this week and she’ll officially be your afternoon host on Tuesday October 10th.


Ocean 98.5 and our sister station KiSS 103.1 have amazing people here at 817 Fort St who are so passionate about this community and I’m going to miss each and every one of them. And I’m going to miss you. That person on the other end of the speaker whom I’ve had so much fun with. Thanks for your support over the years!! It’s not goodbye, it’s “I’ll see ya later” and I will!! Let’s keep in touch:




Be well, all the best and much love,
