Dave5I 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.
