Virgin Radio Mornings with B Mack & Karly
B Mack & Karly have enjoyed waking up with Kelowna for 5 years now, and are happily planted back home in the Okanagan, as they are born and raised here. #BMackandKarly proudly boast 1st place victories for ‘Best of’ in Kelowna for each of those 5 years.
Listen weekday mornings 5:30 – 10am and Saturdays 6 – 10am as they play today's biggest hits, while showcasing entertainment & pop news. Join the silliness, with fun segments like ‘Karlyoke’, ‘The Breakfast Battle’ & ‘The Newsworthy Lyrics Game’.
Back home in the Okanagan for over a decade, B Mack is never leaving again! Living in Rutland with 3 girls: his wife, baby, & pug, he loves being a house-husband to his little girl. When not mc’ing events & dj-ing weddings, find him building up a thirst from working in the yard, golfing too much, & watching the Canucks consistently lose.
B Mack proudly boasts awards like Top 40 Under 40, & won ‘Best of Kelowna’ & ‘Best of Central Okanagan’ - Local Personalities with #BMackandKarly on #VirginMornings 5 years in a row!
Proud to be Okanagan born and raised, Karly chose to pursue a radio career in Broadcasting at BCIT. After graduating she was very fortunate to start her radio career in Victoria, then onto Vancouver, Vernon, and now her home, 99.9 Virgin Radio in Kelowna. For the past five years, she’s had the honour to work at the morning show with her fantastic co-host and been given the opportunity to talk, laugh, cry, and to be herself... and people listen. Kelowna is a massive part of her life and she couldn’t be more grateful to be involved with the community and her listeners. It’s the best job in the world and Karly hopes to be heard and enjoyed for many years to come.

Please show your support today May 5th Red Dress Day / Red Shirt Day
Today is about recognizing the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit People.
Red dresses are set to be on display across the country Friday to recognize the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit People. It has become known as Red Dress Day and the empty garments serve as a symbol of lives that have been lost.
The head of the Native Women's Association of Canada Carol McBride, says it's clear there's an ongoing emergency nearly four years after the final report into missing and murdered Indigenous woman and girls was released. It’s a crisis…
The inquiry's final report was released in 2019 and included sweeping calls for change. It found Indigenous women and girls are 12 times more likely to be murdered or go missing than any other group in Canada.
Sixty-three per cent of Indigenous women have experienced violence and nearly half have experienced sexual assault, Statistics Canada said in a report last year.
Each year there are more events, rallies and art displays. Despite the increased awareness and an extensive national inquiry, McBride said the situation that Indigenous girls and women face has not substantially changed
the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society is holding its 15th annual march for missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2 spirit people. “All allies are welcomed to join at 10:45am for the march and event, which will begin at 442 Leon Ave at 11am, and will end back at the Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society at noon for a community lunch and open mic. The purpose of the march is to bring awareness to the issues as well as honor and remember those who have been lost. “ says Elder Edna Terbasket.
Red shirts and hoodies will be available at the event as well as ahead of time through their website. Participants are encouraged to wear red as many Indigenous cultures believe that red is the only colour spirits can see, and by wearing red we call back the spirits of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
Smile Cookie week for Julia & Julia's Junction!

Voyager RV Shout out
THANK YOU FOR BEING SO AWESOME!!
Voyager RV Centre's Voyager Cares initiative for 2023 is in full swing, with over $30,000 in donations already made through their year-long campaign. Kicking off the Voyager Cares fundraiser back in late 2022 with the goal to raise $100,000 by the end of 2023, these two donations make for a great start.The first donation of $13,200 will be given to the Central Okanagan Food Bank, while another $18,750 will be awarded to the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA).With all employees voting on local charities of choice, the top eight vote-getters were then selected to be the recipients for 2023, with each charity given a specific month to raise donations. For every RV sold during that charity's month of fundraising, each department committed to making a donation."Plus we bring reps from each charity here for the cheque presentations, so that our staff can learn about what the donations mean to the charity and our community. It’s a pretty cool experience.”For the Central Okanagan Food Bank, this will help feed the mouths of the over 4,000 individuals on a monthly basis. The CMHA says the near $19,000 donated to the organization will help over 300 people that they house, their outreach services team, the youth population and more.The next beneficiary of Voyager Cares, based on RVs sold during the month of April, is the Kelowna Hospice House. To Ward, Jason, Alicia, and the entire crew at VOYAGER RV, thank you for all you do for your community!
