Afternoon Co-Host / Weekends / Music Director / Sales/Promotions Assistant
Tell us about yourself: I’ve always been interested in media because my mum is a journalist and I always thought her job was so cool! But radio and television have always interested me, so after volunteering for a while at Rogers TV, I decided to go to Humber College for Radio Broadcasting. Since I had some TV experience, I knew that radio was something I wanted to do because it involved music, which I love – listening to it and playing it (trumpet and piano!) Plus I hope I can get people excited about things and to look on the bright side of things. From Humber, I went into promotions at the Rogers stations in Toronto and here I am at the Beach, weekend announcing and assisting with sales and promotions and loving that I can learn about all different aspects of radio. While I’m not doing radio stuff I’m hanging out with my fabulous family and friends.
