Clare Bonnyman

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

My introduction to Radio Drama wasn’t perfect. Being lactose intolerant, my mother denied me hot chocolate. Nonetheless, we settled into the couch, I placed my head on her lap, and listened.

I’ve always been a storyteller. From a child who couldn’t stop talking, to a reporter hunting for the next big scoop, there’s always been something on the tip of my tongue.

Radio drama was my eye-opening experience into the world of creative audio, and inspired me to think outside of the box. I still do.

Deciding that I wasn’t interesting enough to tell my own story, I studied journalism at university. I dug deeper into audio and digital communications, partnering with local not-for-profits and student run organizations.

After graduation, I worked in digital journalism, telling a story online with social media and images. But try as I might I couldn’t replicate the feeling of closing my eyes, and seeing.

Going through my old writing, I realized I couldn’t escape my desire to tell stories; but more importantly, to tell them out loud.

Radio drama was my introduction to the power of audio storytelling, and the capability of radio.

I want to give that feeling to the next generation of listeners.

Broadcasting – Radio Diploma

I’ve been interested in media since I was very young. Growing up, I watched shows like Much On Demand and always dreamed of being the next host. To pursue this dream, I started volunteering at a local Rogers TV station and hosted me own show! Doing this confirmed that this is what I want to be doing. When I came to Humber and found out about the other aspects and departments within this industry, I suddenly had an interest in sales. Now, I’m in the sales pathway and excited to see where I go!

Danielle d’Entremont

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

Maritimer lost in Ontario.

I was raised at kitchen parties, listening to and telling stories into the wee hours of the morning. I have had 15 different postal codes. Called both Canadian coasts home. I had the pleasure of spending some time in

Kingston studying International Development and Environmental Sciences.

And through it all, my stories were my passport. From Halifax, to Vancouver, to Toronto, every city has a heartbeat and I love being at the pulse of the people, stories, and culture.

Also, any tips on how to navigate the TTC would be greatly appreciated.

Jacob McCourt

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

When I was a kid, the audience of my imaginary game shows always contained Bob Barker, Dick Clark, Gene Rayburn and my parents. I’m enjoying life in the biggest city in Canada for the first time. I have always wanted to bring joy to people’s lives. I knew that joy was important when my friends and I launched an online variety show pre-YouTube when I was twelve. My twenty-seven years of small city living in Windsor and London taught me that good friends and a supportive family are the most valuable things that you possess. My five years in marketing taught me that you’re never too big for anyone or anything. I’m passionate about sports, video games, movies and music – you can hear my commentary for Humber Hawks sports, and hear me host on 96-9 Radio Humber. I believe that sweet potatoes are an essential part of anyone’s diet, and I won’t rest until I’m an overnight success. Nice to meet you.

Broadcasting – Radio Diploma

If you talk to me, you’ll learn the two key things that you really should know about me – I’m super into horses and I’m super into rare and expensive cars. Photography is also a huge passion of mine and when I have a camera in my hands, well, let’s just say, I went to the Grand Canyon in 2014 for one day and night and took over 3000 pictures. My other real passion is travelling. I have been to England, Cuba, Arizona, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Montreal, Mont Tremblant, and so many other places. By the way, I also collect hockey cards and have over 1000, don’t ask me how much I’ve spent on them. I really enjoy coin collecting as well. I am crazy for sushi and it’s not uncommon to find me at an all you can eat sushi restaurant cowing down. So, what else do I love…oh yeah, a microphone and talking down it, through the medium of radio. If you see me, say hi.

Lex Tan

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

At 3 years old, my parents let me use my first karaoke machine and mic. I was immediately hooked on performing. To this day, I love and crave being in front of a camera, a microphone, and an audience. I did have to overcome a lot to get to where I am today: Stuttering, shyness, and being bullied.

Over time, I have learned acting, music, and public speaking. I'm a theatre trained actor, and favourite roles I've played are Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar" and Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. I am pleased to share that I have added sports and video game commentary, and radio music hosting, and news performance to my arsenal.

I am even prouder to say that I have learned to control my stammering, can get past moments of shyness and am victorious over the bullying from others and from myself. I dream of one day being the lead play by play commentator for baseball, hockey, basketball, or professional wrestling. One day, The Rock will smell what I'm cookin'!

The character from Smallville with a similar name (and bald head) share the same sentiment in our endeavors: “I don’t want to do good things. I want to do great things.” And it all started with a karaoke machine and a mic.

Unable to find a true vocation, I joined the workforce and dabbled in a variety of industries. Eventually I grew restless working in an industry I had no real connection to. However, what always felt right to me was my connection with radio. Now the clear vocation I look forward to continuing perfecting my craft and making my contribution to the radio industry.

Mirna Trogrlic

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

During late night drives home, in the backseat of my dad’s car, I used to doze off to the murmuring sounds of news talk radio. I would imagine what the hosts looked like and simple details like the tweed material that acted as soundproofing, lining the walls of the studio. My parents were new immigrants from Yugoslavia and radio was their sole means of keeping track of the war breaking out in their native country. Needless to say, radio meant a lot to my family and I. As I grew up politics and current affairs were always a part of dinner table conversations. These discussions left an impression on me and matching my insatiable curiosity, I found passion in reporting. I am excited to use my curiosity, discerning and principled nature to ensure that silenced voices get heard.

Robynn Beazley

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

“Once Robynn learned to talk, she never shut up again unless her nose was in a book, or she was writing in her notebook.”- Mother

“Robynn needs to stop talking and distracting the other students.”- Teachers, all grades.

“Robynn, I bought you that recorder so that you could record math equations and scientific formulas to help you study, not for you to record yourself talking about music and celebrities…”- Mother through my bedroom door in my early teens.

“Why can’t you still go into radio? Doing an undergrad in Sociology and Women Studies doesn’t stop that; in fact your experiences here can HELP you in other careers!”- Trent professor who asked us all a few years ago what our absolute dream jobs as kids were.

“Working with you is like having the radio on, what will RobynnFM be discussing today?” - Past Manager.

“My kid wouldn’t go anywhere else to get their Halloween costume, they wanted to see what you would be dressed up as today!”- Customer from my costume consultant days.

“Robynn is a great customer service rep, she gets people laughing and talking!.”- Coworker.

“Robynn, you should go into radio as a career!”- half the people I know.

And: here I am. My zany personality, creative mind and desire to connect with people and make them smile, has found its happy place... Radio.

Ryan Sincennes

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

I’m Ryan and I’m an aspiring radio producer. With a last name like Sincennes, it isn’t too often I hear it pronounced correctly. The correct pronunciation sounds like “cinq cents” in French so some people call me Ryan “5 Cent”. After completing a degree in Communications, I knew it was time to pursue my true passion - music. My life was forever changed at 10 years old, after my first concert experience…American Idol Live. Embarrassing, I know, but what I loved about the American Idol brand was the idea of finding new talent who will form the future of music. That is why I turned to radio, as it is very instrumental in exposing new music to a wide audience. In a perfect world, I would be producing content for an urban station like HOT 97 or Power 105.1. The Hip-Hop and R&B genre is my always my preference of music and I am enamored with the culture of New York City. That being said, I gravitate towards all types of music and would be thrilled to produce for a wide range of different radio formats. I love to create. I love to innovate. I love to be spontaneous. With my productions, expect the unexpected.

Stephen Boyles

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

When I was 15-years-old, I stole my parents’ car with one goal in mind: get a fake ID from Toronto. The collision that followed didn’t teach me the finer points of automotive operation. Instead it taught me that I could talk. I learned that under an incredible amount of pressure, I was able to perform in a way that was compelling to even the greatest sceptic. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone as a tried and true method for learning about yourself, but I consider it a defining moment for when I realized my greatest personal asset. I can speak.

I’ve chosen the announcing pathway to better exploit that skill. It was a difficult decision, because my time at Humber has taught me more about radio than I ever expected to learn; and I’ve loved every bit of it. However, if I want the things I think I do out of this career I’m going to have to polish and develop my on-air persona, and announcing is what gives me an opportunity to do that.

Ashleigh Darrach

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

I’m convinced that I was born in the wrong era. Now, I’m not saying that I’m a groupie, but I have seen Def Leppard six times, Motley Crue five and Guns N’ Roses three times… The list goes on. I guess you could call 80’s hair bands my guilty pleasure. Aside from that, I have a passion for all things music – especially rock, and can probably beat you on name that tune. I was unanimously voted best teammate from the Humber women’s volleyball team in my 2015-2016 season, I pride myself on working well with others, and investing in the common goal. I work hard, but I have a hell of a lot of fun while I’m at it. Some other notable quirks of mine include my love for mini-pigs, viewing bad taxidermy, throwing movie quotes (that usually go unnoticed) into daily conversation and my pink hair. If I had it my way, I’d be hosting a show on a rock station today.

Nathaniel Davidson

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

My very first record was Crisis What Crisis by Supertramp.  At 16, I was lucky enough to see the group live at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre and realized how Roger Hodgson had the ability to pull the sound right off the grooves.  It was an unforgettable feeling hearing my favourite tracks live. I was star struck by the rawness of the sound and it was as if I was experiencing their music for the first time.  Throughout my undergraduate degree, I hosted and produced my own radio show called “Scratching the Surface”, where I played my personal vinyl collection.  The records touched many genres including jazz, hip-hop, rock, and funk.

Expanding my knowledge through the discovery of new music is part of my everyday life.  I love being exposed to music I have never heard before, which is why you won’t have any trouble finding me in a record store searching for new sounds.  There is something about my old soul that still brings me to the 60s era of psychedelic rock and jazz.  Producing radio content is a great way for me to apply my passion for music though a creative medium.  As the official host of “Scratching the Surface” I am hoping to continue to grow that affair with old and new sounds through the world of radio.

Kohinoor Kalia

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

Hi, I am a teenager who was born 23 years ago. Ever since there have been only 2 things in my life, my pen and my notebook. I didn’t realize it for long, but I was a born copywriter. While making me, God wanted another Shakespeare, Hemingway or maybe Mark Twain but there was some technical fault and all of them got mixed up and boooooooom, here I am.

My journey started by writing punishment essay’s in kindergarten. Next step was scripting computer programs in high school. Then in college it got to a whole new level. Each word spoke for itself. Even commas, full stops and semicolons became crucial because apology letters to escape termination from college, needed to be on point.

Coming to Canada with bachelors in journalism and mass communication from India, I am totally ready to rock, and confident that my future is very bright. In fact it’s so bright that you need sunglasses to look into it. Also, “I love cricket”.

Nathan Gill

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

I love listening. It could have been working in record stores or growing up by the ocean but it's probably because I'm the youngest brother. Like many Prince Edward Islanders, I came up with the comforts of music and stories. Eventually, I tempted face as a song and dance man, myself. I've played electric guitar in empty dive bars from Saskatoon to Berlin. And I still love wrestling with new songs while drinking more tea than grandma. This past September, I left Charlottetown for Toronto in my old Impala stuffed with what belongings I hadn't sold. Here, I began a post-graduate program in Radio Broadcasting. Here, I will continue to tell stories. At Humber College, I have been writing, performing and producing original features, newscasts and interviews. I am learning how to be a better broadcaster every day and hope to continue learning from the best. I can’t wait for my future in radio.
