John hails from Winnipeg where he studied English Literature, Film and Theatre at the University of Manitoba, and journalism and technical communications at Red River College.
After cutting his teeth as music host on Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative’s CJNU 93.7 FM in Winnipeg, John headed north to work as Morning Show Host, news anchor, and music director at Arctic Radio Network’s CFAR 590 in Flin Flon, Manitoba, hometown of hockey legend Bobby Clarke and obscure hero of fiction, Flintobbatey Flonatin.
John kicked his radio news career into high gear at CJOB in Winnipeg, where he spent seven years as news anchor, reporter, producer and sometime host. He took a brief hiatus as news director and morning news anchor with Evanov Radio in Winnipeg, before returning to CJOB.
While working in Winnipeg news radio, John instructed and mentored a new generation of radio broadcasting talent at a local private broadcast college.
Heading west in 2014, John continued to work in news radio in Vancouver as evening anchor at CKWX before taking on his current position as National Network News Anchor with Global News Radio.
