WEST PALM BEACH — Morning radio’s KVJ Show is returning to the West Palm Beach market about a year after hosts Kevin Rolston, Virginia Sinicki and Jason Pennington moved to Miami — but the trio is set to announce their new station at a press conference tomorrow in West Palm Beach.
So, where are they going?
Several sources are telling me the jocks will announce that the $500,000-a-year show is being picked up by WRMF!
WRMF General Manager Elizabeth Hama isn’t returning calls for comment and neither are Wild’s people.
This much is sure: KVJ‘s hosts have beeen talking to Hama and WRMF owner Dean Goodman for weeks.
Radio industry folks, however, believed KVJ‘s move to WRMF makes no sense since current morning talent Jennifer Ross, Joe Raineri and Deena Lang are No.1 in morning drive-time.
“I don’t see WRMF firing Jennifer Ross to bring on KVJ but anything is possible in radio,” a former WRMF employee said.
After KVJ left Wild for Miami’s Hits 97.3 FM, Wild owner Clear Channel Communications’ Regional Program Manager Dave Denver made it clear KVJ could return if they wanted to.
Denver and Rolston have maintained their relationship since, I’ve been told.
Wild’s ccurrent syndicated morning host Elvis Duran, however, has outperformed expectations and built up a following in West Palm Beach and on the Treasure Coast.
Kevin Rolston declined comment.
He and the rest of the crew are set to appear at a press conference at 3 p.m. tomorrow at CityPlace to announce The Decision — LeBron-style! (Even if Gossip Extra readers found out first!)
