Mike graduated from the Seneca College Radio & Television
Broadcasting course in the early 1980’s and during his last year at
College landed a job at CFGM 1320 AM radio. Mike moved on in
1986 to join 1390 CHOO Country (which changed to KX-96 FM)
as an on-air announcer to do the evening shift. Shortly thereafter
he moved to handle the afternoon drive show and Music Director
duties at that radio station and in 1989 was offered the morning
show. In 1993 Mike left radio to take over the family AV business
but returned to radio for a few years part-time in 2001 at KICX
104.1 FM in Barrie. After a chance meeting with Dan Pollard in
Elgin Park on Canada Day in 2018, Mike joined the on-air team at
105.5 Hits FM to do the Saturday morning show.
Although Mike has a passion for radio, he is also a musician
(drums/guitar) and record producer/songwriter and spends a lot of
time in his home recording studio making music. He produced
local artist, Robyn Ottolini’s first album and co-wrote the title
track “Open Doors & Fairy Tales” in 2014.
Mike’s weaknesses are Peanut Butter & Chinese food although he
never eats them both at that same time.
Mike has lived on a horse farm in Uxbridge since 2000 with his
wife Jodie, their 3 sons, 2 dogs, many horses & ponies, 2 chickens
& their cat Cleopatra (who rules the household).
