Making myself at home, at work!

I’ve been part of the Fox FM Universe since 2006, when I started off as the reporter in our newsroom, and reading the afternoon news on Fox FM (when we still used to have that, back in the day).

And when I moved to the Fox FM morning show full-time, back in November of 2011, I took up residence at the Fox FM News Desk.

Where I hang out and work every day, when I’m not in the Fox FM studio!

Over the years, I’ve brought in a few things over the years, to personalize my little corner of the office. I though I’d give you all a bit of a tour!

Of course, there’s my Tennessee Titans flag, along with a lanyard commemorating the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ final season at old Mosaic Stadium.

Titan Up, baby!!!

Watching over my desk is the greatest mascot in pro sports history (though I admit, I may be a bit biased), the living embodiment of chaos, clad in Orange and Black, the one and only Gritty!

The Flyers may have been a lousy team on the ice over the last few seasons, but they struck gold when Gritty was born!

A few years ago, Ducks Unlimited had a media barbecue sauce challenge, and Fox FM claimed back to back titles, including in 2017.

The second of Fox FM’s Saucy Duck trophies, from when our BBQ sauce came out on top in 2017.

Being a music fan, I have a copy of Billy Joel’s “The Stranger” on CD, because you never know when you might need one! (It was a gift from a former co-worker. And a memento of the greatest song by a fictional character, Kirk Van Houten’s “Can I Borrow a Feeling?”

Love this album! Long live the Piano Man!
The Simpsons are, and will forever be, my favourite TV show of all-time!

As a wrestling fan, I celebrate Canada’s greatest-ever performer in the squared circle, Calgary’s own Bret “Hitman” Hart!

In this glass, any drink becomes the “best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be!”

I’m a movie fan, and especially enjoy classic 80’s slasher films, including the iconic trio of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers.

I love ’em all, but if I have to pick one as my absolute fave, I’m a Freddy guy all the way!

I got this cool little cat from one of my former co-hosts, and it has never stopped waving in all the years that I’ve had it perched on my desk!

One of my favourite little knick-knacks… it just keeps on going!

And finally, a thank-you card from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, after we sent Harry and Meghan a slightly-used French press as a wedding gift in 2018.

Look at that happy couple. I bet it’ll be nothing but smooth sailing ahead for those two…

I’m going to go out on a limb, and assume they ended it up donating it to a goodwill organization. But I like to think they liked it so much, that they took it with them, when they made the big move to the States, and now, they enjoy their Sunday morning cuppa with some coffee made in our French press!

I have some other items adorning my desk, including a lightsabre (because, of course!), as well as a googly-eyed rock, a poop emoji pillow, more Flyers swag, a commemorative coin celebrating the Raptors’ 2019 NBA title, and a picture of my family (which never fails to cheer me up when I need it most.)

Just a little glimpse of what I’ve surrounded myself by, in my little corner of the Fox FM newsroom!
