On Air

Mark Andrews

I've been host of the CJAR Morning Wake-Up and the evening Country Show for over ...wait, what?...yup, it's actually been over a decade now. And I've loved every minute of it! One of the biggest changes in that time has been a total revamping of our identity as a local station playing "Today's Hits and Yesterday's Favorites" as CJ 1240 on the AM band to our new image, " YOUR RADIO" and the addition of YOUR RADIO 102.9 CJAR FM for our listeners on November 27, 2013. Arctic Radio owner and CEO Tom O'Brien explained it to me like this, "It's not about the music (although it certainly is important that we play a bit of the best hits for our listeners of all ages). It's really more about what happens between the music that we need to focus on. We need to be local, local, local. This station is about the people that we serve in the community. That's why we chose the slogan YOUR RADIO". And I really like that! I've met so many wonderful people in this community since I've been here and I'm so grateful that Arctic Radio has allowed me share their microphones with you. I've got the word out about things from local churches, the Royal Canadian Legion, The Pas Regional Library, town government and OCN band council news to bigger fundraisers for international organizations like Kin Canada and Rotary as well as one of the biggest outdoor festivals in the country, the Northern Manitoba Trappers Festival. It's also been a priority to make sure that your day starts with a smile and maybe a chuckle or two. I sure hope I've succeeded at that. I hope to be able to continue to do these things and more for many years to come. From day one, I've invited guests from the community to come in and share your stories with us. Please do. If you have anything that you'd like to share with our listeners, call me at (204) 623-5307 to set up an on-air chat. The coffee's always on. Remember, we are YOUR RADIO Station.

Derek Logan

I may not be the biggest guy, or the toughest guy,
or the fastest guy, or the smartest guy ... wait,
where was I going with this.?"

Derek is a Manitoban through and through and when hes not cheering on the big Blue and Gold he
is probably wearing a Jets shirt. Born and raised in Winnipeg he had your pretty typical upbringing.

Soon after leaving high school Derek found himself working in restaurants. He may not look it but
he can cook like the wind blows, and oh my is it tasty. His passion towards cooking could not last
forever though and with that fire slowly fading away he found himself looking for, a new passion.
It was his love of all things music that made him decide radio was the right place.

It was at this time Derek went to the Academy of Broadcasting and was able to take his first step
towards becoming the man he is today. Derek has a love of everything media. He loves listening to
all types of music, from classical to metal and everything in between. He can often be seen jogging
while rocking out to The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Guess Who and other classic rock greats.

In his free time Derek loves to play the guitar and says the only thing he misses about Winnipeg are
the ladies he left behind, a Fender and a Jackson. He also has a love of science fiction and all things
alien. The Truth is Out There.

Catch Derek bright and early Saturdays - and weekdays Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 2PM
for the evening drive, and call him with your favourite tunes for the 3 Oclock Request fest.

Nolan Chapman-Puritch

Nolan is a Torontonian who spent most of his summers growing up in Flin Flon. Him and his family would hit the road once a year and do the 36 hour drive making a few stops to camp or visit family in Winnipeg along the way.

At the ripe age of 10 he was the shiest student in class until his vice principle selected him to do the morning announcements… and now nobody can get him to be quiet! Nolan attended the broadcasting program at Durham College in Oshawa. He worked as a concert security guard throughout college, where he got to hang out with bands like the Arkells and The Glorious Sons! He quickly became an avid supporter of Canadian music, believing Canada has some of if not the best music to offer today! To no surprise his favorite bands are The Glorious sons, The Arkells and the Tragically Hip, but he’ll jam out to just about anything if the mood is right!

Nolan lives by the saying “don’t knock it till you try it” and is always front of the line ready to try the next fun thing, regardless how dangerous it might be. He’s taken a rally racing course and been right in the pit photographing many concerts!

Nolan is an automotive enthusiast at heart, often going for drives with no end goal aside from to enjoy the drive. He’s combined his love for cars with his love for photography and is always looking for the next beautiful spot to park and snap a pic for the memory book.

Nolan is looking forward to working with CJAR to bring you the latest and greatest in sports and entertainment!
