On Air

Ted Burton

Weekday Mornings 6-10am
Hometown: Kenora
First Job: Cutting grass, maintaining boats, groundskeeping for John Turner at his summer camp on Coney Island
Favorite saying: "Wow"
Favorite thing to cook: Anything that I’m not supposed to have.  BBQ steaks, burgers.  And sweet desserts and snacks.  If my wife approves, I probably don’t want it.
Favorite pastime: ATV’ing
Furthest place you've travelled: Cozumel, Mexico
What do you love about Kenora: I love that just about wherever you go you bump into someone you know (of course, that’s only a “plus” if they’re people you LIKE!).  In so many stores they know you, talk to you by name, and know what you like before you even tell them.

Kaddie Vaughan

10am - 2pm Tuesday to Friday plus Saturdays 7am  to 2pm.
Hometown: Blenheim, ON. But I've lived most of my life in Kenora. I'm a Kenora girl at heart!
First Job: Good ol' Kenora Walmart.
Favorite Saying: Tough call! I have a lot of go-to phrases... just ask my friends. Probably a toss up between, “Fair enough”, “This is my JAM!” and “This is happening right now.” Apparently I have to assure people that my ridiculous antics are, in fact, occurring in real time.
Favorite Thing To Cook: I make wicked home made ravioli from SCRATCH (yes mom, I can cook). Having cooking adventures with friends is one of my favourite things, so I'll try anything at least once.
Favorite Pass Time: Exploring the back roads whilst having epic sing-a-longs.
Furthest Place You've Traveled: I did a tour of northeastern France. It was basically amazing.
What do you love about Kenora?: I love the creative ways people think of to have fun here. Anyone from Kenora knows EXACTLY what I'm talking about. That's small town living for you. And I guess the general scenic beauty of living lake-side in northwestern Ontario is pretty okay too.

Conor Hamill

Weekday Afternoons  2 - 9pm

Hometown: Kitchener, Ontario

First Job: Delivering newspapers during the winter in a neighbourhood where no one seemed to shovel their sidewalks. 

Favorite saying: Eh?

Favorite thing to cook: Chicken wings! 

Favorite pastime: Anything and everything to do with music (listening, playing, writing etc.) 

Furthest place you've travelled: United Kingdom

What do you love about Kenora: The scenery, the amount of things to do and the fact that everybody gets to know you.
