Vancouver Radio Legend Gets New Home on LG 104.3
Larry Hennessey (formerly of Larry & Willy) returns to Vancouver on new morning show
Richmond, B.C. – In addition to sunshine and long summer days, Vancouverites now have another reason to wake up with a smile on their face – the return of iconic morning show host Larry Hennessey on LG 104.3 in early August.
For 27 years, Larry was half of the world-famous Larry & Willy morning show. Together, Larry & Willy revolutionized morning radio in Vancouver, first on CFOX and later on Jack-FM. From the laugh out loud antics you’ve grown to love from Larry & Willy over the past few decades to the upbeat and familiar music you grew up with in the 70s and 80s – mornings with Larry Hennessey are going to start your day with a smile on LG 104.3.
“Nothing makes a morning commute more enjoyable than a good laugh and great music,” says LG 104.3 Program Director, Taylor Jukes. “Larry has been a staple in Vancouver radio and is the perfect host to lead a station dedicated to playing the songs that define our youth.”
But since he was part of a famous duo for so long, the question is bound to be asked…Larry and Who? Jukes promises an answer soon. “Larry is the first piece of the LG 104.3 morning show,“ she says. “There’s more to come!”
One bright and familiar voice will be joining Larry immediately. Corrie Miller will provide morning news and traffic updates. Corrie has worked extensively in the Vancouver market for 10 years, most notably as a morning show co-host for the Bro Jake show.
LG 104.3 plays Vancouver’s Greatest Hits, the songs you grew up with in the 70s and 80s from artists like Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, The Beatles and Madonna. The station is designed to be contemporary and relevant to today’s busy adult. The music on LG 104.3 spans the decades and is rooted in Vancouver’s rich history. It’s almost impossible not to sing along!
