Virgin Radio Montreal doesn’t have a lot of veterans, but while the weekday shows have gone through several shuffles over the years, one constant was the MC Mario show on Friday and Saturday nights.
Until now, that is. Mario posted on Instagram on Friday that, effective immediately, his show “will not air any longer on Virgin Radio Montreal” after an impressive 30 years.
No replacement has been announced. Friday and Saturday nights have a generic “Virgin Radio hits” show, along with DJ Vito V.
Virgin has also dropped afternoon host Tyler Barr from the schedule. Barr joined the station a year and a half ago, moving from western Canada. Lee Haberkorn takes over his 2-7pm shift.
In a Facebook post on Monday, Haberkorn wrote that Barr “decided to move back to Ontario to be closer to family. A decision we respect immensely!”
