Chris Reiser and Ted Bird "KIC" start country station

While I am not necessarily a country music fan, because of the personalities CKKI 98.9 KIC Country FM has  added to its lineup recently I have been giving it a listen every now and then.
First off we have radio veteran Chris Reiser co-hosting the morning show with the ever so charismatic Lee Haberkorn, who has been heard on Virgin Radio.

“I've been involved with CKKI 89.9 KIC Country for two years now,” says Reiser. “It's been an exciting time building a radio station from the ground up with minimal resources, but the positives far outweigh the negatives.”

You can also hear Reiser on CJAD, Virgin Radio and CHOM. That’s because he works for the Canadian Traffic Network, which supplies traffic reports for the stations. “They don't have a problem with my involvement with KIC,” he says.

Reiser is also very active in the Voice-Over community and typically has several sessions a week.

“I like country music,” Reiser says. “Though  the bulk of my career was in the rock and adult contemporary world, I have always been a fan of country music.”

Dave and Dave it the air from 6 p.m. to  9 p.m. weeknights. “They are new to the industry and we are encouraged by what we've heard from these guys so far,” says Reiser.
