HAMILTON - While one broadcaster who wants to be a politician runs for office, another former broadcaster who successfully made that transition will sit in for him.
Hometown Radio AM900 CHML recently announced the appointment of Stan Keyes, a long time member of Parliament, as morning show co-host while its regular man Bob Bratina takes a six-week leave of absence to run in a by-election on Hamilton city council.
Keyes, a Hamiltonian, enjoyed a successful career as a broadcast journalist before entering politics in 1988. His studies at Mohawk College were followed by two years at a Barrie television station before 13 years at CHCH-TV.
Keyes, who had been Revenue Minister, lost his seat in the last federal election.
"Stan is a well known and respected local public figure," said Suzanne Carpenter, general manager, AM900 CHML. "It is with great excitement that we welcome him to the roster of all-star personalities on Hometown Radio AM900 CHML."
Keyes joined the AM900 CHML team today and is co-hosting an informative, interactive top-rated morning show with Shiona Thompson.
"I look forward to using my skills as an accomplished politician and broadcaster to bring continued success to Hometown Radio AM900 CHML," said Keyes, in a release.
