I am a senior radio communications professional with 25+ years of experience leading news teams, developing strategy, implementing award-winning news programs, writing articles and blogs, as well as instructing journalism and social media.
During my extensive communications career as journalist, analyst and writer, I have been an executive producer at one of Canada's largest broadcasters and oversaw a team of 20 professionals.
I started a media consulting business in 2008 and had the opportunity to develop and implement strategic media and marketing initiatives for a variety of firms, groups and community organizations.
I was recently the News Director at 620 CKRM in Regina where I led a team of news and sports reporters and anchors.
Since I assumed this role, our team achieved top ratings (medium market) according to Canada's Bureau of Broadcast Measurement (BBM).
Our social media sites grew significantly under my tutelage. I consistently monitored how our communication strategies would reach our audiences.
Along the way, I've blogged, contributed to weekly online publications, and developed strong leadership and management practices.
My connections throughout Canada are extensive - in business, political and cultural circles.
While always committed to my current tasks, my sense of humour and creative side generally helps - especially when the clock is ticking down.
