HOST WITH THE MOST

TALK THAT ROCKS

Josh Holliday is a versatile radio and on-camera host.

On the audio side, he specializes in Personality Radio. He’s performed in pretty much every radio category including commercial, public, satellite, community, and podcast. Just give him a microphone and he’s happy. He’s also quite comfortable in front of a camera, hosting with a combination of curiosity, quirk, and dry wit. In addition to hosting, he’s a multi-award winning copywriter, and master of creating content.

Josh was twice-nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award in radio. Here’s a news item on E!

Voted Favorite Local Radio Personality (commercial radio) in FFWD Magazine’s Best of Calgary issue.

If you’re looking for a unique talent that's constantly looking to break the mold, then you’re on the right page. If you’re looking for a "set it and forget it" talent, then move along, Josh isn’t for you!

Working with Josh at X92.9 was super fun. He's a great cohost and knew how to pull the best content out of me. He's also an outside the box thinker. Maybe a little too outside the box. Jk!

Anytime I experience Josh, across any of his skills – radio, acting, hosting, production, personalitization (is that a word?), I know it’s likely to be smart, witty, milk-thru-the-nose funny, and occasionally very sincere (well, he is still Canadian).

Josh is a master comedy writer, performer, improviser and producer. He knows the radio medium where he's at home creating and bringing to life characters that make people laugh.

CREATIVE

I found a dusty old box in storage, and inside a couple of retainer CDs with commercials and promos I’d written and voice directed while working in radio creative departments for CFNY, The Edge, Q107, Talk640 and Mojo.
I’ve also added a more recent campaign I created and produced for CBC Music.

If you’ve spent any time listening to Toronto radio over the last 20 years, I’m sure you’ll recognise some familiar voices (listed at bottom of page).

RADIO SHOW AND PODCAST

STEVE AND TAWNY

Beaver Bend’s #1 morning show for 10 years running!

Steve Hammerstone and Tawny Skypunch have hosted a very popular (in the Beaver Bend area) morning show for many years. The show features good old fashioned chit-chat, along with interviews, advice, arguing, pettiness, and water cooler talk.

A few years back, CBC Radio – Canada’s national public broadcaster – asked Steve and Tawny to go out and cover the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. They had no previous experience with sports, but made the best of the opportunity afforded to them by the CBC, and in part Steve’s dad who is a broadcasting bigwig.

After the Olympics, they were offered an advice show called The Know-It-Alls. They did 50 episodes answering important questions about the world, like “when’s the best time to mow my lawn?” or “what’s the deal with that smoke behind planes?” and “How do I deal with a chatty boss?” Most recently, The CBC has been airing “best of” moments from interviews Steve and Tawny do on their multi-award-winning morning show.
