The River Wake Up v9.0
PRINCE GEORGE: 101.3 The River program director Ron Polillo is super pleased to announce that Char Normandeau will take over the morning co-host position on The River Wake Up (with Mike Benny) on June 19th!
Char is returning home to BC from Alberta where she currently is the morning co-host on Classic Hits CJOC in Lethbridge. She has been a part of that popular and successful morning show for the past 4 years!
Char likes to travel, read and get involved in her community. She is very excited about returning to BC and to work with our talented team in Prince George!
Char could not be reached for comment, however on her Facebook page she commented, “I am happy to be joining the River and glad to working with Mark Benny. I’ve heard so much about him. Mostly from him..” 😉
Mike Benny says he’s really looking to the arrival of #9!
Mike’s top five things about having a new co-host from out of town.
#5. Telling them it’s pronounced Ques-nelle.
#4. They usually think I’m the boss, at least for the first little while.
#3. Explaining how 5th ave is sometimes 3rd ave and even sometimes 4th ave.
#2. Dazzling them with stories about that time I played Conrad Birdie in my high school production of Bye Bye Birdie.
#1. Nice to have someone around who hasn’t heard all 4 of my jokes already!
