John has done nearly everything there is to do in a Newsroom over a 36 year career. Being a "weather junkie" is just the biggest of many interests.
The Brandon, Manitoba native grew up in Winnipeg and Etobicoke, then graduated from York University in 1973 in Political Science. York is also where he found his first love: Radio News. It took him to work in Woodstock, London and Toronto, in both radio and television news. He also continues to teach Broadcast Journalism courses at Fanshawe College, as he has done for over 20 years.
John is 30 years' married -- he and Cindy dote on their two cats instead of children. John has a heavy-duty interest in golf, skiing, his motorcycle and boring stuff like international economics and politics. And you can never pry him away from a tough crossword puzzle!!
John is a voracious reader -- to the point where he may need an addition on the house to hold all of his books.
