ROGERS MEDIA CIWW (OLDIES 1310)/OTTAWA, CN names sister Classic Rock CHEZ midday personality and 30-year station veteran JACKI NAVRATIL for MD duties. NAVRATIL will also handle back-up music duties/weekends and fill-ins for CHEZ and backup music duties Hot AC CISS (105.3 KISS FM).
In addition, veteran OTTAWA personality SAMANTHA STEVENS has been named to fill NAVRATIL's midday slot. STEVENS previously spent three years on the air at 105.3 KISS-FM.
ROGERS MEDIA newly-named CHEZ and CISS PD GAYLE ZARBATANY commented, "JACKI NAVRATIL has been at CHEZ for 30 years, hosting middays for the last 10 years and moves off the air to take on new challenges in music, something she has been working towards. She is now the MD of OLDIES 1310, as well as back-up music for CHEZ 106 and 105.3 KISS FM. JACKI will be heard on CHEZ weekends from noon-6p, a key listening period for our listeners; and filling in dayparts throughout the weekday.
CHEZ is adding one of the best talents in CANADA to an already strong lineup ... SAMANTHA STEVENS returns to OTTAWA airwaves bringing her genuine sound and infectious personality to CHEZ middays enabling JACKI to focus on her new music role and added programming responsibilities."
"I have the great opportunity to work with two of OTTAWA's best music stations! Since arriving, (2/5) I've been having fun fine tuning CHEZ 106 and 105.3 KISS FM," NAVRATIL said.
