CBC radio announces host for new Kamloops’ show

Daybreak Kamloops with Shelley Joyce will debut on Oct. 9 at 94.1 FM.

Kamloops residents will soon be waking up to a familiar voice and a new morning show this Fall as CBC today announced Shelley Joyce as the new host of Daybreak Kamloops.

The CBC Bureau is under construction at 218 Victoria St. in Kamloops. It will be home to the new morning show and digital service dedicated to local news, traffic and weather for residents of Kamloops åand the surrounding areas.

Joyce has hosted radio programs in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna and written for The Winnipeg Sun, Today’s Parent and the Vancouver Province. She has been part of the CBC Kelowna team for the last six years and her stories have also been heard on CBC national radio programs The Current and The Story from Here.

“We have been looking forward to this new addition to the CBC service in British Columbia,” says Johnny Michel, managing director of British Columbia. “The show will reach more than 100,000 people in the area and with Shelley’s tenure in broadcasting and remarkable style of story-telling, we will hear great things from Daybreak Kamloops.”

This rounds out CBC’s commitment to being rooted in the region as Kamloops residents have already embraced CBC’s afternoon show Radio West which broadcasts from CBC Kelowna and covers the Okanagan.

“I would like to welcome the new CBC bureau to Kamloops,” said Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops Thompson Cariboo. “This new bureau will not only bring expanded services to our local residents but further our community’s profile on the national stage.”

“Canadians have long told us they want local services,” says, Kirstine Stewart, executive vice-president, CBC English Services. “We made a commitment in our strategic plan to include the city of Kamloops and although it isn’t the extent at which we had planned prior to our cuts, we’re proud of what our team has been able to do for the residents in the area.”

The new Bureau is part of CBC’s five-year strategic plan, “Everyone, Every Way”. The plan, which was released February 2011, calls for a number of strategic priorities including expansion of service in Kamloops. For more information go to www.cbc.radio-canada.ca/strategy2015/

Daybreak Kamloops will begin broadcasting on Oct. 9 at 6 am on CBC Radio One on 94.1 FM in Kamloops. For more information on CBC in Kamloops, visit cbc.ca/kamloops
