NewsTalk 1290 CJBK Guest Host

Last week I guest-hosted First Thing, the 6-9 morning show on London, Ontario’s talk station CJBK. I’ve had a passion for talk radio since my teens, calling in to assorted shows on CFRB. It’s also been a longtime dream and desire to host talk radio. I’ve been not only a long-time listener of the format, but a long-time study. My news co-host (and part of the morning show at the station for more than a year) was the great Lisa Brandt, who spent a good part of her career at the top of Toronto’s radio news industry. I have to thank her and Ryan Spence for being incredibly helpful. New station, new (and busy!) format, new city,new producer and co-host, and of course early, early morning wake-up for this notorious night owl. So if I sound a little dozy, that’s a part of it! Here’s a compilation of some of the week’s moments:


Just for fun, here’s a montage when I guest-hosted a day on Talk640 Toronto about 15 years back:
