It started with a simple phone call asking for some input, and quickly turned into "Oh my goodness, I think you're the co-host I've been looking for!" We're about to find out if the Milkman's instincts were right as Kerri Selki (formerly at The Drive Winnipeg) and John Mielke (The Milkman) launch Kerri & The Milkman beginning Thursday on internet radio and multimedia outlet BlastTheRadio.com. Instant chemistry is rare, and we thought, "why wait, let's just do this!" And we're inviting our listeners to join in as we ask the question, "can two broadcasters, from two different cities, in two different provinces, who have never met, create a show that stations across Canada and the USA will want to add to their lineup? That's the plan! The show is designed to fit AC/CHR/Rock/Country/Classic Hits and will deliver 12-18 breaks per day that can be broadcast in any day-part! Audience members who subscribe can watch the show in real time via Twitch, and will be able to access exclusive features and contesting, plus bonus features like extended interviews with artists, as well as podcast content created by Kerri, John and supporting contributors including Sex With Sue's Sue McGarvie, Food Dude Chris Fotherbill-Brown, and empowerment coach Suzie, The Diva Of Love! And we're not wasting any time! Our first show, un-rehearsed, and un-scripted airs Thursday at 10am ET on BTRradio.com - Beginning Monday, the show moves to 7-10am ET.
Mielke will continue to host his midday show on WSRQ FM Sarasota FL as well as his Sunday Morning Diner show in Milton, Orangeville and South Simcoe ON.
With that, Milkman moves from middays which he has hosted since the 90's at KOOL FM, the BOB FM Ottawa. The new midday host is Christa Pare, with years of on air experience, most recently at Heritage FM in the Ottawa Valley! Milkman is back at 2pm ET for his new talk show, IT'S YOUR CALL, launched last week after legendary broadcaster Lowell Green announced his retirement. Afternoons are hosted by Rob Tyson out of Cold Lake AB and Andrew Proulx out of Ottawa.
Welcome and congrats to our newest DIY broadcasters and we look forward to more new show announcements coming soon!
