Felicia Goldstein comes to Tillsonburg by way of New York, New York; Montreal, Quebec and London, Ontario. While studying at McGill University the radio bug bit her. There she was the 6 o'clock news girl on the university's radio station but being the practical woman that she is, she went to Teacher's College where she became a high school English teacher. After 25 years as an English as a Second Language teacher the fever struck again.
She enthusiastically returned to radio and has been at Easy 101 since 2007. Being a virtual insomniac, the evenings that she spends at CKOT are both a joy and a delight!
Join Felicia from 7:00 pm to midnight.

I got my start in broadcasting when I was in high school at the age of 17.One day our electronics teacher told us that the local cable company was looking for a couple of camera operators.I had visions of getting my foot in the door as a cameraman and then convincing them I should try to do a close circuit radio show.Which they let me do.On Saturday nights we played music and took requests.At the same time I became a reporter for a radio station in Stratford .Covering town council meetings and sports events.Eventully I became an on air host on a partime basis at that same station.From there I went to their sister station at the time in Parry Sound.Since it was a small station, I was an on air host, copy writer and Sports Director.After two years there I went back to Stratford moving from evenings to eventually Program Director.
In 1984 I moved to Tillsonburg and in 1986 I became the Program Manager of Easy101/Country 107 3. Besides broadcasting, I sit on the board of directors with Community Living Ontario, Community Living Tillsonburg, and Norwich Merchants Jr. C Hockey Club.

It continues to be a new and interesting broadcasting ride for Cathy, that has come full circle here at Easy 101/Country 107-3.
Born and raised in Ingersoll in a big family among 5 brothers, Cathy landed her first full-time radio job here as fledgling news reporter.
It wasn't long before Cathy's career forayed into television, where she worked for more than 15 years as a successful anchor, host, reporter and producer. Her stops include tv stations in Wingham, Pembroke, Edmonton , Ottawa and Hamilton . Most recently, Cathy could be seen co-hosting CHCH Hamilton's Morning Live.
Finally saying a fond goodbye to broadcast news and moving back to our area to be closer to family and home, Cathy accepted an opportunity to add a new dimension to her broadcasting career as an on air personality with us. Cathy can be heard on both Country 107.3 and Easy 101. She is really enjoying this new role. She says her listeners are like friends – "Its great to just talk and share with them."
In her spare time, Cathy loves spending time with her husband and her dog, traveling, watching movies, trying new cookie recipes, painting, skiing and catching live music.

John officially started hosting morning radio shows in Halifax in 1985, but he will admit to you that he first caught the “bug” for morning radio while providing character voices for a morning show in St. John’s, Newfoundland, in his formative years as a radio announcer two years prior to moving back to his birth city in Nova Scotia. John was hosting the all-night show, but he’d stick around to work with the station’s morning show host until 9am! (Can you say “sleep-deprived”?)
Since then, John has stared with some disdain at alarm clocks in both Hamilton and London as well – at a time of day that appears to most “normal” people as the middle of the night. But, hey – SOMEbody has to get up early and wake the rooster, right?
John is thrilled to join the team at Easy 101, and he loved his time sitting in with Rick Malo, while Rick was performing his last few “Malo in the Morning” shows before riding off into the radio sunset and toward the golf-filled world of retirement. (Rick may regret giving John his cell phone number, though. John can be seen texting at all hours of the day.)
John’s also a voice artist, so if his voice sounds familiar, it could be that you’ve heard some of his frequent radio and television work on both regional or national commercial campaigns.
In his 30-plus years of media experience, John has also been an assistant brand director, a music director, a digital content manager for station websites, as well as an occasional television host and presenter. (He also brags about having worked with Cathy Wegner before.)
Before radio became his career path, John was a professional bassist and backing vocalist with a successful Halifax-based touring and recording act, and his musical performance experience gives him a unique perspective on life as a performer, as well as a musician's view and understanding of the challenges entertainers and artists face.
He enjoys interviewing “working musicians” about their lives in the music industry… although the word “interview” might be a bit misleading. They really boil down to just friendly conversations on a variety of fun topics.
John’s favourite topic - and his favourite people - are his twin children, Liam and Morgan, (yep, one of each) and you will no doubt get to know them through John’s eyes.
Join John Biggs for Breakfast between 5am and 10am on the Heartbeat of Southwestern Ontario, Easy 101.
