Chris Biggs and Jason Barr Barr Leave GTA for Ottawa Radio:
Biggs and Barr have given 97.7 HTZ-FM notice that they're leaving the Bell-owned station for a Rogers-owned station in Ottawa, CHEZ 106.1. Biggs and Barr are replacing Doc and Woody.

Doc and Woody have been an Otto-rock mainstay for years -- They left Bear for Chez around the same time I came back to BC from Ottawa -- mid-90's

Kind of interesting that one of the the people posting on Toronto Mike's story suggested that Doc & Woody were being moved to Vancouver for mornings on Jack FM.

Absolutely never going to happen. JACK's morning show is relatively new, and the station's ratings are better than they've been in quite a while.

Doc & Woody have been spinning their wheels, and are clearly ready to retire.

Yeah, it seemed a bit far fetched. As for the current Jack morning show, I think the ratings were about the same when they had nobody on.
