After 9 years of working on air at 101.5 KooL FM (formerly Energy), my time there has come to and end. 9 years was a good run….especially for radio. 😉 WOW! I can volunteer at the school now & hang out with my family over Spring Break. Yay!! I’ll also be focusing on my freelance voice work. Let me assure you, you haven’t “heard” the last of me. I wish nothing but the best to my former co-workers–an amazing crew! XX

Unfortunately Erin wasn’t the only one who’s contract was not renewed with the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group in Calgary. Zach Hewitt was also let go.

9 years is a long time. 9 years ago I actually turned down afternoons on 101.5 in the beginning. About a month later I thought I had made the mistake of my career, and they called back and asked again. I said yes.

The last 9 years have been such an amazing learning experience for me. I am a better human, broadcaster, Dad and friend for these 9 years.

My time at 101.5 KooL FM has come to an end. I love those people and am filled with gratitude for my time in that studio. The staff are amazing and I’ll miss everyone.

To my dear listeners, thank you sharing some great laughs, stories and mixes on the radio.


  1. Zack is a heck of a good guy, talented, passionate, professional and has advocated for hundreds of Canadian artists. He’ll bounce back bigger and better!

  2. JRFM in cowtown would be great but I’m placing a bet on Now 101.5. And what about the Peak? How much longer can that station go untouched?

  3. Erin and I used to get into trouble on air at Z95 in the late 90’s. She is simply too damn good for other broadcasters to pass on.

  4. Erin was the only reason I would tune into this Calgary radio station all the way from Victoria BC. Even the one time I did call in to her show she sounded personable,funny and entertaining. I have a feeling she won’t be radio silent for long.
