» WIVK's Tony & Kris Depart: Cumulus WIVK/Knoxville morning hosts Tony Randalland Kris Rochester have departed after nearly five years. They joined in July 2017 (CAT 7/12/17) succeeding Country Radio Hall of Famers Andy Ritchie and Alison Mencer. Randall and Rochester first partnered in 1992 at WHMA/Gadsden, AL before spending 10 years at KSON/San Diego, five with KUSS/San Diego and eight in Nashville as USRN syndicated Tony & Kris. The pair dissolved their syndicated show in May 2017 (CAT 5/18/17) before reuniting at WIVK two months later. Rochester tells Country Aircheck the duo has “a few irons in the fire” and are excited about their next opportunities. Reach Randall here and Rochester here. No official word on plans for mornings at WIVK, but a job posting for a co-host can be found via the Cumulus site here.
