Richard Cloutier is co-host of the News on 680 CJOB, 4 to 7 p.m. weekdays and senior reporter Global News. Richard started at CJOB in December 1992. He has a passion for story-telling on all platforms, radio, digital and television.
Richard was born and raised in St Norbert, cutting his teeth in the job market at age 10 pumping gas for his dad at Cloutier Motors. He also worked for his older brother Curtis at Roadshow Sound. The DJ days brought out a love for music and performing. After political studies at the University of Manitoba and journalism at Carleton University, Richard did short stints in newspapering in Ottawa and Hamilton. CJOB was going to be a job for a few years but he fell in love with the sounds, the stories and interaction with Manitobans. It’s so much fun working with some of the best journalists and story-tellers in the business.
Richard’s proudest achievement is his three children. His two daughters are each working on their second degrees in university and his son is working in the financial industry in Toronto.
Richard loves the arts, football, hockey and is still a work in progress at running and golf. Reading is a passion. You will find him at WPG Cycle spinning at 6 a.m. Favourite saying: “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while you could miss it” Ferris Bueller
