Highly-rated radio personality Lucky the DJ leaves the Boise airwaves

KSAS/103.5 KISS FM personality Lucky the DJ will no longer appear on the station.

Lucky, whose real name is Chris Stewart, is on his second stint at Kiss FM after coming back to Boise last year following time in other radio markets.

In the spring ratings book, Lucky’s timeslot on KSAS led all stations in the women 18-34 demographic the station markets to advertisers, according to ratings data from Nielsen obtained by BoiseDev.

“Being on-air in Boise for close to a decade has truly been the greatest experience of my life,” Lucky told BoiseDev. “I’ve experienced high-highs and low-lows, and because of these moments, I’ve grown into a man I am proud to be today. This city has impacted me in the most positive way, and for that I am thankful.”

A request for comment from Townsquare Media group VP Kevin Godwin and operations manager Jeff Connell wasn’t immediately returned Friday afternoon.

Lucky returned to Boise just one year ago after a shuffle at the station led to the exit of a short-lived morning show helmed by Chris Cruise & Tawsha Box. Former Kiss FM brand manager Keke Luv moved to mornings but his duties overseeing the station ended when he was named creative services director for Townsqure Media Boise, which owns Kiss as well as other stations like Mix 106, Wow 104.3 and KIDO-AM.

The 3pm to 7pm time slot on the station was filled Friday by Boise newcomer Matt Derrick, whose hire was announced in October, before Lucky the DJ left the air.
