    Since 2001, Heather has produced and hosted “Sunday Afternoon Jazz”, and will continue to do so along with her new hosting duties on “Dinner Jazz”, two of JAZZ.FM91’s popular programs.

    “I am honoured and excited… I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be continuing with the show that Brad Barker developed so incredibly well,” said Heather Bambrick.

I would also like to thank Walter Venafro for doing an incredible job holding down the program in the interim,” said Ross Porter, President and CEO of JAZZ.FM91.

    As announced previously, Brad Barker moved from “Dinner Jazz” to hosting the station’s “Afternoon Drive” show on November 29 th, 2010, and Walter Venafro, host of “Saturday Afternoon Jazz”, has been hosting “Dinner Jazz” until the new host was announced.
