HOLLYWOOD — When the legendary KVJ Show‘s Kevin Rolston, Virginia Sinicki and Jason Pennington quit their West Palm Beach radio station after nearly 14 years and moved to a lowly-rated new home in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale market, their Wild 95.5 listeners here freaked.
In time, however, they discovered that the morning crew’s new station, the Cox Media-owned Hits 97-3, could be heard in most of Palm Beach County — and things settled.
Dozens of fans reached out to Gossip Extra today to publicize what they say is the trio’s plight down south!
Hits 97-3, it seems, decided to change format.
And what was a talk show where Rolston, Sinicki and Pennington bantered about life in South Florida suddenly turned into a music show.
There was no warning to the public.
And there’s no comment from the honchos at the station, which is owned by an Atlanta conglomerate that also owns The Palm Beach Post.
Rolston, the show’s defacto spokesman, isn’t returning calls.
An insider at the Hollywood-based station said Rolston, Sinicki and Pennington still show up at the studio every morning.
But they are reduced to spinning a reduced Top-40 playlist and reading weather and traffic reports. The show’s webpage hasn’t been refreshed in three weeks.
Listeners from the Florida Keys to North Palm Beach, meanwhile, are ballistic.
Earlier this week, they launched a Save The KVJ Show page on Facebook. It already received 2,100 likes.
