SPORTS TALK BIO
A native of Pouce Coupe, B.C., Jock graduated from High School in Dawson Creek. Inspired by an old girlfriend, he enrolled at Mount Royal College and took the Broadcasting course. His first exposure on the airwaves was as the ski reporter for 107 KIK FM. From there, he moved up to afternoon Sports announcer and eventually Sports Director. Sports has always been a passion with Jock. Like every kid in Canada, he wanted to play in the NHL. When he realized he wasn’t good enough, he shifted his goal to making it into the NHL as a broadcaster (“I was fortunate enough to cover the 1989 Stanley Cup Playoffs”). In addition to a love for hockey, Jock says “Golf is my passion!”. Like any good golf/hockey nut, Jock’s favorite movies are “Slapshot” and “Caddyshack”. He cites Bob Costas and Peter Maher as broadcasters he admires (“both are outstanding professionals”).
