Mark Kaye, morning co-host of 95.1 WAPE's The Big Ape Morning Mess announced today that he will be transitioning over to WAPE's sister news station WOKV-FM to focus exclusively on his talk show. The Mark Kaye Show will debut on Monday, February 22. His final day at WAPE will be on Friday, February 19.

"I am so grateful to have had so many incredible opportunities at one amazing company", said Kaye. "Now, as I say goodbye to mornings on WAPE to concentrate full-time on WOKV, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every single minute of the last 15 years."

Kaye joined WAPE for mornings in 2007, and current co-host Meghan Lane partnered with Kaye in 2014. In 2015 he rolled out "Kaye's Kids" a program where he would buy technology and dream gifts for local kids battling life-threatening illness. Kaye made the leap to talk radio in December of 2017 creating The Mark Kaye Show on WOKV-FM. The show was such a hit, he expanded it to two hours Monday through Friday in January of 2019.

"Mark's impactful presence was truly felt during his time on WAPE. We are so looking forward to his continuing success on WOKV and bringing the same energy that the Jacksonville community got to know and love into this next chapter of his career," said Vice President and General Manager at Cox Media Group, Katie Reid.

Tim Clarke, VP, Audience & Content added, "Mark is one of the most creative and ambitious people I know and his continuous evolution as a media personality is truly impressive. I truly believe that the "Mark Kaye Show" represents the future of the spoken word format - entertaining and informative with an aesthetic that resonates and appeals to all generations. This represents CMG's continued investment in creating new and innovative content to serve our audiences and communities."

Meghan Lane will continue hosting the Big Ape Morning Mess, while the search for a new co-host will be coming soon.
