It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours for radio personalities Kevin Lim and Sonia Sidhu, who went from hosting one of the most well-known morning shows in Vancouver to being unsure of their next move.
On Tuesday, the duo announced that it was their last day at The PEAK and the station will be “moving in a new direction.”
Their morning show was also syndicated in Kelowna through Q103.1.
KelownaNow talked to Sidhu Wednesday afternoon.
She said they haven’t decided what their next business move is, although they are open to opportunities.
“We’ll always be best friends,” Sidhu said, of her and Lim, who have been by each other’s sides for over a decade. “We’re just going to take a bit of time to spend time with our family and friends.”
Lim is married and the father of a one-year-old son, who’ll he’ll get the chance to take to the park more often.

Sidhu also has her own upside.
“I’m sleeping in tomorrow and I’m not getting up at 3 a.m.,” she said, laughing. “It’s going to be fricking great.”
When it comes to the Jim Pattison Group who let the pair go, Sidhu said they have no hard feelings and wouldn’t give any further details on the split.
Sidhu said she’s hoping their fans will stick by them. They have over 7,000 Facebook followers and about 5,000 each on Twitter. Since they announced the news on Facebook, hundreds of people have been reaching out on social media to give them well wishes.
“I’m just like...wow...people really care,” said Sidhu. “Every single one of those messages makes me feel so grateful.”
“We’re going to be OK. As much as it’s cliche, everything happens for a reason.”
Lim and Sidhu are hosting a Facebook Live chat on Friday at 2 p.m., and listeners are invited to ask them questions.
