John Himpe’s career began at the age of 16 in Yorkton, Sask., learning the craft of storytelling while working in community cable. After high school, he honed his craft at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT).
For more than a decade, he’d work throughout Saskatchewan in television and radio newsrooms, spending more than a decade with News Talk Radio in Regina and Saskatoon as a journalist, producer, manager and show host. He joined 770 CHQR in January 2017.
A firm believer in the value of telling the story behind the stories, John often tries to pull back the curtain in his reporting to give listeners a more complete picture of the day’s news.
