Dylan & Jason in The Morning Zone
Weekdays 6:00–10:00 am
What would happen if you put a genius and a comedian in the same room for 4 hours everyday? We have no idea, but Dylan & Jason get to the bottom of life’s tough questions; like how often to wash your jeans and if it’s OK to eat hard boiled eggs in front of other people. Despite how it may sound, Dylan & Jason actually do like each other. Kinda like a couple where one person married up – they’re locked in a constant battle to prove it wasn’t them.
8:15 am Dylan vs. the World. Where you can challenge Dylan to a game of Wit & Knowledge, with your host Jason Lamb!
Weekdays 10:00 am–2:00 pm & Tea Time at 3pm
Jon Williams comes from the land of Harry Potter and accents which make anyone sound real smart. Tune in to learn something completely random or hear Jon regale you with a cheeky rap (as long as Bossman isn’t around). Jon is a passionate supporter of music and you can always count on him to have the most up-to-the-minute information about your favourite Zone artists.
Pol Plastino in The Afternoon Zone
Weekdays 2:00–6:00 pm & Knowledge Bomb at noon
How do you accurately describe a guy with a flaming pie tattoo? Pol describes himself as a combination between Han Solo, “Handsome” Dan the radio DJ from Wayne’s World 2, and Hedonism Bot from Futurama. We kinda think of Pol like a Chicago-style pizza; covered in cheese, stuffed with awesomeness, and deeper than you think. He’s totally a guy you could pal around with, but make sure you never leave your phone lying around unlocked and unattended or Pol will update your status to some profound thought followed by #PoopPoopPoopBanana.
B-B-Bonus, Arti Prasad reads the news (with minor interruptions from Pol) at 2:45, 3:45 & 4:45 on Quarter To News.
3:15 Catch Pol’s Knowledge Bomb at noon, and Pol will quiz you on your attention-paying skills with Pol’s Knowledge Bomb Fallout at 3:15 to win fabulous prizes!
4:50 Shoutouts! Text your shoutout to Pol at 250.475.0913 and he’ll read it out on air!!
Jade Nixon – Evenings & Weekends
Wed – Fri 6 pm–12 am, Sat (4pm-10pm), & Sun (3am-9pm)
Jade enjoys the finer things in life; bicycles, animals, ska music, and playing Animal Crossing. She wandered into the Zone to host a “My Turn” 6 years ago and we liked her so much we kept her!
Mon – Wed 6 pm–12 am, Sat (10am-4pm), & Sun (9am-3pm)
You never know what Jenny has up her sleeve, *POOF* What was that? Too late, you missed it. Nightly Jenny proves to us that “the West is the Best” as she regales us with tales of life, magic tricks, and awkward stories.

Did something break? Is someone sick? on Holiday? Then Kirsten is your gal. Think of her as the substitute teacher of The Zone. She’ll roll in an old TV and a VCR, put on some Bill Nye, and all will be right in the world.
Marlon Martens – Voice of the Victoria Royals
Tune in to The Zone 20 minutes before each puck drop to hear the pre-game show with, Marlon Martens and special guests! Then, hard-hitting live play-by-play action and behind the scenes access to your Victoria Royals with interviews with players, coaches, and fans during the intermission- We are Royal Blue.
Capistrano Boitano – Music Director
Friday Live Mixtape 5 –6 pm
Our music director is also the Zone’s resident DJ; as in actual DJ with records, needles, and mixing and stuff! Listen as he starts your Friday off right with the Friday live mix tape, a mashup of some of the hottest modern rock songs with some classics, and some surprises.
Allie Bowman – Promotions Director
Ever win anything from The Zone? You probably have Allie to thank for that! She’s the brains, heart, and good looks behind our promotion department. When she’s not showering Zoners with gifts and prizes, she becomes the powerhouse front-woman of Stinging Belle (with Jon on drums!). Brains, looks, and talent?!! I guess what we’re saying is that Allie rocks (and no we’re not just sayin’ that to get tickets to that thing).
webmeister Bud – Resident Geek
Some say that when he sleeps his snores sound like a dial up modem. Some say the only way to defeat him is ↑, ↑, ↓, ↓, ←, →, ←, →, B, A, start. All we know is he’s called webmeister Bud! You’ve probably seen him out capturing photos, playing with drones, or compulsively cleaning stray hairs of others’ shirts. What keeps him going faster than a 56/kbps modem in 1999? Sugar. It’s sugar.
Bossman Johnny – Program Director
The man, the myth, the bossman. Listen for Bossman Johnny casually walking into Zone control unannounced to ‘check up’ and make sure the DJs aren’t getting into too much trouble. If you want to get on his good side ask about the Denver Broncos. If you want to hear him talk for hours on end – ask about vocal dynamics. He also sings a mean version of our national anthem.
