Vancouver’s 980 CKNW has a new morning show beginning March 30: Mornings with Simi, hosted by longtime radio personality Simi Sara.
Sara grew up in Surrey, British Columbia, and spent the first 15 years of her career in television. She has been with 980 CKNW since 2010 as the host of The Simi Sara Show weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. PT. She is the recipient of two national and three regional RTDNA awards for her editorial and commentary work, and has also won both the BCAB Broadcaster of Tomorrow and BCAB Performer of the Year awards. Additionally, she is the only radio personality to win the Jack Webster City Mike award for commentary.
“Simi is a trusted and beloved voice in the city – knowledgeable and connected to the community, she is a natural fit for the morning show role and will continue to engage CKNW’s listeners in compelling conversations about important local issues in her new time slot,” said Larry Gifford, National Director of Talk Radio, Corus Entertainment.
