“KVJ” hosts move south to “The Coast”


The top rated KVJ morning show on CCME’s CHR WLDI-FM Wild 95.5 West Palm Beach/Treasure Coast, FL for 14 years, ends 7/26. Hosts Kevin Rolston, Virginia Sinicki and Jason Pennington, as well as executive producer Heather Nelson, are headed to Cox Media Group’s Hot AC WFLC-FM Miami (“The Coast”), where they’re starting 8/5, reports Gossip Extra.

Some of the topics included Rolston’s obsession with Larry King‘s farting problem, Pennington’s search for Big Foot and Jackass-style stunts, and the sultry-voiced Sinicki’s relationship with her new husband, Panda.

The show captured the essence of the Palm Beach area in all it gaudiness, fickleness and diversity, said the story.

But no worries for morning commuter fans—The Coast’s signal covers all of Palm Beach County and most of Martin County well.

How it will fare in the flash-and-dash Miami/Fort Lauderdale market is left to be seen, although Rolston tells Gossip Extra the cast welcomes the challenge:

“It’s a very exciting time for us. We wanted to develop the show more, bring it to the next level, and we understood that if wouldn’t be possible in West Palm Beach. The Coast is giving us the resources to create an even better show.”

Still, says Rolston, leaving West Palm after 14 years wasn’t easy.

KVJ will be replaced Monday by the syndicated New York City-based Elvis Duran.
