Many new faces came to CKNW including Bob Hutton, Vancouver's most
popular morning man. He moved from CKWX to NW and hosted the a.m. show until ’73.
With the Jack Cullen's departure in 1954, Jack Kyle came in to fill his shoes.
He would be with CKNW for many years. Finally, 1955 also saw the introduction
of the first CrystalPalace. The era
of Road Shows had begun.Jack would park
the CrystalPalace near a
busy roadway and ask listeners to honk…..and honk they did. The Palace was used
at most remotes and openings.
The Vancouver Sun sold
CHUB Nanaimo to Bob
Giles (former manager of CKLG and previous news director at CKNW and CKWX), Jack
Kyle (on air personality at CKNW) and Joe Lawlor
(sales manager for CHAB, Moose Jaw).
