Kath Thompson parts way with Calgary’s Peak

Kath Thompson



Kath Thompson PD of The Peak Calgary parted company last week….Mike Shannon now running both Pattison stations there.  Kath was one of the most awarded MD’s for several years at CMW.


Bio – Kath’s career highlights include launching three radio stations, twice being named Major Market Music Director of the Year for her work at 106.9 The BEAR, Ottawa, and creating radio “events”.

She is also an award-winning program host and producer and is known nationally for her syndicated music specials with U2, The Tragically Hip, Bon Jovi, Nickelback, AC/DC and many other Canadian and International artists.

Kath’s career started at the CBC in Montreal. After working her way through college and university as an announcer there, it was off to the U.K. where she launched West Sound Radio in Ayr, Scotland before heading to Manchester to work for Philip Birch (one of the original British radio pirates) at Piccadilly Radio.

Eight years later, she returned to Canada to join the on-air team at CHEZ 106. More recently Kath was the PD in charge of launching up! 97.7 in Calgary. She was also PD at CHFI in Toronto.


  1. Kath has not had the best of luck during her last few years in broadcasting. Her time at CHFI was limited, before she was fired. Not to mention the disaster that was UP-Calgary and now The Peak-Calgary.

    Failure of The Peak is not on Kath, but the people that run the show. It’s just a matter of time before the current General Manger of Pattison Calgary is also dismissed. The cluster is poorly managed and way under preforming. You’re just not going to get away (for long) with the dismal revenue and numbers this cluster has. It’s embarrassing.
