Broadcast Company of the Americas (BCA) Programming-Operations Manager Mike Shepard announced that John Nolan from Burlington, Vermont and Kim Morrison from San Diego, California will team up and become the new Walrus 105.7 FM Morning Show beginning February 27th.

Kim graduated from Northern Arizona University where her emphasis in TV and Radio helped launch her career. Kim has done everything from news anchor, performed the Macarena on the field at a Padres game, provided extensive coverage at the Grammy's, and Oscars, and conducted dozens of celebrity interviews. Her ease behind the microphone also helped land her the weekend weather position at KFMB Channel 8. Most recently, she served as an integral part of the morning show on Star 100.7's "Smiley Morning Show".

Nolan was most recently at Star 92.9 WEZF in Burlington, Vermont where he earned
the #1 rated morning show since 2004. Prior to working at Star 92.9, he spent time in
the Washington DC area.

And many, when they have found it, learn that it's not enough. One of the greatest myths in marketing is the belief that advertising, by itself, is able to drive steady traffic into a business.
