Two sudden retirements at Calgary's Country 105

Postby radiofan » Fri Jan 17, 2020 6:38 pm

Two longtime CKRY Country 105 Calgary employees have suddenly "retired" following the announcement that CFMI/CFOX Vancouver PD Ronnie Stanton was named regional Program Manager for Corus' 6 FM stations in BC and Alberta.

Phil Kallsen who has been PD of Country 105 for 22 years along with PM Driver/APD/MD Scott Phillips who has been at the station for 29 years have both announced their retirements.

Until the arrival of Pattison's Wild 95.3 in recent years, Country 105 pretty much owned the Country radio market in Calgary.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Corus Alberta is a mess.

Country 105 is on the verge of being beaten by Wild. Q107 is in the dumps, especially in the morning. CHUCK is the lowest-rated full signal commercial station in the country, with a syndicated morning show that's completely incompatible with the format. At least CISN's doing OK?
