Canton-Akron Radio: WHBC Loses Another Personality

Mike Izic
Alpha Media's WHBC Mix 94.1 in Canton, Ohio has lost another prominent air personality.

Mike Izic, known as “Ike” on WHBC-FM’s morning show, quit his job after his Friday air shift.

Izic had co-hosted the station’s morning show with Kathy Vogel until her firing on Aug. 23. John Stewart, Mix 94.1′s program director and afternoon-drive host, also left the station on Aug. 23.

“A big reason I took the step back into full-time radio was the chance to work with Kathy and John,” Izic said Friday. “Since the two of them left the station, it’s been a personal struggle for me.”

Izic joined the morning show three years ago, following the departure of co-host Pat DeLuca.

Kathy Vogel
After Vogel’s recent firing, morning-show producer Sarah Quinn moved into Vogel’s co-hosting spot opposite Izic.

Vogel has returned to WONE-FM 97.5 in Akron, where she once hosted a morning show with the late Jim Chenot. She will be on the air Saturday from 2 to 7 p.m.

According to, Jenny Lyte, a Mix 94.1 weekend personality and Izic’s wife, quit the station two weeks ago. On Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m., she will be on the air at Q92 in Alliance.

Currently, Kayleigh Kriss is on the air in Stewart’s former slot weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m., while Bo Matthews is doing Kriss’ midday show.
