Last Thursday at 8:05am, Jester and Chief were informed that last week's broadcast would be the show's final airing on CIUT 89.5 FM. Boasting what was undeniably one of the most polished on-air productions in Canada, The Worldwide Wake Up Show is a two-time award-winning institution in college radio broadcasting. Worldwide beat out shows across the country in 2008 and 2009 consecutively to claim the title of College Radio Show Of The Year at Canada's esteemed Stylus DJ Awards, and fans across the country voted to nominate the show again this year (2010). The Worldwide Wake Up Show now stands ready to potentially three-peat at the Stylus Awards this year - a feat which would place Jester, Chief and Worldwide in the history books for this particular highly-coveted Stylus Award category. Reminiscing about the show's amazing journey from fledgling college radio show to one of Canada's most respected, up-to-the-minute radio…
