Cory started his radio career volunteering at S.F.U.’s campus radio station for 6 years before heading to B.C.I.T. to study broadcasting. Cory spent 3 years at XFM in Vancouver, 9 years at CFOX FM and stints with Shore 104.3 and the Peak FM and brings a vast knowledge of the local music scene to our Station.

Leslie Glaeser: Leslie’s career was launched at Nornet Broadcasting in 1985 and subsequent experience at companies like Rogers, Standard Broadcasting, The Beat 94.5 and Corus Entertainment have played a major role in developing her specialized skills as a Commercial Traffic and Accounting Manager for Roundhouse.
