GM Dan McAllister Leaves The Q/Zone


One of those very rare events is occurring .. Someone is leaving the management team of Jim Pattison’s The Q and the Zone in Victoria.

Dan McAllister, in his 50th year of broadcasting, will be stepping down from his position as GM of both FM outlets at the end of the month.

He began his career at CFTK Radio/TV in Terrace in 1964.  After stops on the prairies and CHNL Kamloops, he hosted shows at CHQM, CKWX and CJAZ-FM Vancouver before becoming station manager of OK Radio Group’s CJOK/CKYX-FM Fort McMurray AB during the 1980s.

McAllister was transferred to Victoria when the OK Radio Group won the license for CKKQ-FM Victoria in 1987.  He’s been there ever since, most recently under the ownership of the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group.

Our sincere best wishes to one of the really good guys in the business, who deserves nothing but early tee times in his retirement.
