A long-time 680 CJOB personality is being recognized by the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA).
Geoff Currier, a trusted voice on CJOB for more than two decades, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from RTDNA in Saskatoon on Saturday.
Currier’s experience with CJOB goes back to 1997, initially as a sports host, before settling into his familiar news/talk role a few years later.
Prior to his career in Winnipeg, Currier – originally from Ottawa – spent 12 seasons calling Saskatchewan Roughriders games for CKRM in Regina.
“I’m humbled by this award,” said Currier. “It’s a huge honour to have a body of work recognized and I’m grateful to RTDNA.
“My employers have given me the opportunity to do what I love for a career, and you can’t ask for anything more.”
