Jacob McCourt

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

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 I started hosting fake game shows for family as a kid and 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.

Announcing

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

I'm Lex Tan, and I am thrilled to be a part of Humber's Radio Broadcasting program, and am so thankful for the opportunity to learn and play at Radio Humber with all the great faculty and my fellow classmates.

Even before coming to this program, I have always felt called to contribute to the world using my voice. I am a theatre-trained actor and a musician, and have a wealth of experiences to contribute to the world through the air waves. And I know that being here at Radio Humber, I can learn how to do it.

You can catch me on 96-9 Radio Humber performing the news. And I also provide commentary for Humber's Baseball, Volleyball and Basketball teams.

My goal is to be working as on-air talent in any capacity, but the loftiest dream I have is to be a play-by-play or color commentator for baseball, basketball, hockey, and yes, WWE wrestling!

I'll leave you a quote from the TV show Smallville, by the character with whom I share my name and my bald head. And it perfectly sums up why I am in this place, in this moment.

"I don't want to do good things. I want to do great things."

Ramraajh Sharvendiran

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

This summer I decided it was time to take radio off the back burner and work towards putting my voice out there in a big way, Humber was step one. Earlier in 2016 I hosted, produced a daily morning show for Ryerson’s CJRU 1280 AM. The energy I feel when I’m live on the air is the fuel I’m going to use to get what I want out of radio as a career. Being a storyteller, giving a voice to others and talking about what matters is what I want to get out of this medium. I’m researching formats and personalities to learn the best practices in the industry, while anchoring the News and contributing to @Humber at 96.9 Radio Humber. My hope is to become the go-to person for information and entertainment on the radio.

Stephen Boyles

Broadcasting Radio Postgraduate

Walking away from a steady paycheque to try and build something new is incredibly stressful. I now know that I made the right decision. Radio is a great format to be creative and expressive, and that's exactly the type of work environment I want in the future. I spend more time in our studio's than I do at home now; working on my production skills and trying to develop my on-air identity. It doesn't feel like work to me, which is how I know I'm finally in the right career path.
