    Weekend listeners will be waking up to a friendly and familiar voice, as Connors has worked in Montreal radio for over 25 years. He has hosted some of the most popular shows on several stations, including CHOM 97.7 and MIX 96 (now VIRGIN Radio Montreal).

    CJAD 800 Program Director Chris Bury says Connors is the perfect fit: “We were racking our brains over this position, but as soon as we thought of Ken, we knew he was the one. Ken has the versatility, the work ethic and the warmth you need to fill these very big shoes.”

    A native of Montreal, Connors is excited about the new challenge: “It’s an honour that CJAD 800 would ask me to take over a role that Dave Fisher did so well for over 32 years. I’m really looking forward to being the person that listeners can depend on for company and information when they get up every weekend.”

    Connors will be hosting the weekend morning show (Saturday and Sunday, 6 to 9 a.m.) as well as co-hosting The Home Improvement Show with John Eakes (Saturday, 9 to 10 a.m.) and The CJAD 800 Trivia Show (Sunday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.).

    Dave Fisher’s final broadcast will be a live edition of The CJAD 800 Trivia Show  on August 14, during which he will be celebrated by friends, family, colleagues and listeners, who will have a chance to win tickets for the occasion.
