2012 marks 30 years in the radio industry for Dave. Born and raised in Winnipeg, his career began in 1982 at CJSL in Estevan, Saskatchewan running the Sunday morning bible tapes.
In 1985 came KX96 in Brandon, Manitoba and then to Victoria in 1987 to help launch the Island’s first rock station- 100.3 The Q. Corus Entertainment came knocking in 2001 and the skinny kid from “The Peg” landed in Toronto as Program Director of 102.1 the Edge.
Two years later, he moved 50 ft. down the hall to program The Mighty Q107, but he wasn’t done yet! In 2005, Dave became General Manager of 4 Corus radio stations in London, Ontario and during those 5 years, with an amazing team of radio pros, successfully launched 1031 Fresh FM and re-formatted FM96 and AM980 to become market leaders. Then, in 2010, it was back to Toronto and the new Corus Quay headquarters as a V.P. with the radio division overseeing Brands, Programming and New Media for the 37 radio stations across Canada.
