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.
