Welcome!Here you'll find links to my daily podcasts, as well as to other informative websites.
A little about me... I'm a freelance Vancouver broadcaster with more than 30 years in the radio industry.
It all began in 1974 at a small 10,000 watt radio station in Peace River, Alberta... CKYL, where I was a DJ and newscaster.
From there, I moved east, to Regina, Saskatchewan, where I was the Morning Newsman and Legislative Reporter at CJME.
I continued my trek east in 1976, where I did News at CFRW and at CKY/CITI-FM in Winnipeg.
I went back to Regina to be the Sports Director at CJME in 1980, and, later, I worked at CHAB in Moose Jaw.
In 1982, I headed west to Vancouver, where, over the next 28 years, I continued my career in News and Sports broadcasting at CKNW and CFMI, CKVU-TV, CKO, CJOR, CHRX and CJJR-FM, CKBD, and CKWX News 1130.
Along the way, I did character voices in ads on JACK-FM and KISS-FM; I taught Media Law at BCIT and Broadcast Journalism at Columbia Academy, and, most recently, in 2011, I obtained a Certificate of Technology, with Distinction, from BCIT's Software System Developer Program Web Designer Option).
Over the course of my career I'm proud to have won several awards:
Employee of the Month
December 2007, for coverage
of the Pickton trial
- Radio-TV News Directors Association Investigative Reporting Award 1996 - Honourable Mention, “Prior Street Fire”
- Dan McArthur Award (Investigative Reporting) 1997 - Canadian Association of Broadcasters -
Honourable Mention – “High Speed Pursuit”
I'm currently working as a freelance broadcaster for HoweStreet.com
and the Talk Digital Network
where I'm a regular contributor to podcasts and also host my own show, The Goddard Report.
