New voices to wake up to on Virgin Radio


When waking up this morning, you may have been surprised to hear unfamiliar voices on the radio. Montreal’s Virgin Radio has refreshed its morning show by changing the voices you hear every day.

As of last week, “Freeway” Frank Depalo and Natasha Gargiulo no longer work at the station and were replaced, two days later, by Shannon King and returning Virgin radio host  “Cousin Vinny” Barrucco. When the show began, Vinny honoured previous hosts Freeway and Natasha and said that they had done a great job. Virgin Morning with Vinny and Shannon now airs every weekday morning from 5:30 to 10:00 am.

On Thursday, Freeway and Natasha posted a video on social media thanking listeners for their continued support and saying this was “probably some of the worst news we’ve had in our life” to have been fired. Watch the full video here

This is not the only change this week at the Virgin Radio studios. Previous morning show producer Lee Haberkorn is now hosting the afternoon show from 3:00 to 8:00pm and previous drive home host Adam Greenberg will work alongside Vinny and Shannon as content producer.

With all these changes to the station, Virgin Radio’s new Program Director, Blair Bartrem has only good things to say: “The chemistry between Vinny and Shannon was electric from the moment they met. Montreal is in for a treat”.
