30 + Years On Cville Radio

Vinnie Kice is Operations Manager, Program Director, and Afternoon Host for “generations102.3, the music for your generation.” He began his radio career in Charlottesville at WCHV radio in 1978, doing the 7pm-midnight shift. He eventually moved to the 3pm-7pm shift, and then to the morning show, 5:30am-9am.

Vinnie has been on Charlottesville radio over thirty years! In 1982, Vinnie transferred to 3WV where he did the morning show as well as handled Program Director duties. Vinnie was hired by WCYK in 1994 (at the time it was Country 102) to do mornings and handle the Program Director duties. WCYK moved to 99.7 on the FM dial the following year. In 1996, Vinnie was hired by MIX 107.5 to do the morning show. In 2002, he was hired to work at Super Hits 102.3, where he hosted the morning show and was Program Director.

In 2007, Monticello Media bought the station and changed it to generations 102.3. In addition to the 3pm-7pm shift, Vinnie is the Operations Manager for all six stations in the Monticello Media cluster.

Vinnie has been a part of many civic groups and has helped emcee events such as: The Miss Albemarle Pageant, Welcome Wagon Luncheon, and Dogwood Festival Events. He is the soul of Charlottesville radio, and we’re glad he’s here! Email Vinnie at
