The Terry Evans Show
Mornings: 5:30am – 9:00am
With Terry Evans and Bryn Griffiths
For a while I thought I might be the best thing to come out of Creston, BC area but that honour belongs to Kokanee Beer. I think I rank about 58th behind Macintosh Apples, The Goat River and Broaster House French Fries among other things…
KC Radio in Creston was my first radio job when I was 15. Grade 10. I was a snot-nosed kid whose voice hadn’t changed, trying to get through reading newscasts while my friends hid behind cars across the street and threw snowballs at the studio window while I was on the air.
The Metro Edmonton area has been my home for 32 years now. As many times as I have had an opportunity to leave…I am glad I never did. This has been a great place to raise a family and be part of the community. Your support means everything to me!
Deep down I’m still that scrawny 12 year old kid that wasn’t allowed to operate the Ice Cream machine at The Creston Dairy Queen making $2.35/Hour. Maybe I’ll get an opportunity to become proficient on it one day…Like they say, it’s not what you know, it’s WHO you know.
YES. I’m old. But there’s not much I haven’t seen over my 32 years in the broadcasting and sports business. So many highlights for me…including:
• The Oilers 1990 Stanley Cup
• The 2008 FA Cup at Wembley Stadium
• Covered TEN Grey Cups
• Covered THREE Super Bowls
• Honoured to work for two NHL teams- viewed things from the inside
• Hosted Eskimos, Trappers and Flames broadcasts
• Play By Play of Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL)
• Launched Edmonton’s only all sports radio station in 2002
If it all ended tomorrow, I’d look back at my resume and consider myself one lucky guy.
