Rob Christie

Edmonton radio host Rob Christie will be in the hot seat on March 8 for the Rotary Roast of Rob Christie. Organized by the Rotary Club of Edmonton, funds will go to Boys & Girls Clubs and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton & Area. Among those roasting the longtime announcer will be Edmonton Sun columnists Marty Forbes and Graham Hicks, Bruce Bowie and Bryan Hall of 630 CHED (CHED-AM) and Susan Reade and Sean Burke of 840 CFCW (CFCW-AM). Christie started out in radio in Montreal in 1968 and has worked at CKXL-FM Calgary, CKGM-AM Montreal, 630 CHED, Power 92 (CKNG-FM) Edmonton, Mix 99.9 (CKFM-FM) Toronto, CTV News Vancouver, KiSS FM (CKKS-FM), JACK FM (CJAX-FM) Vancouver and JACK-FM (CJAQ-FM) Toronto. He returned to Edmonton in 2005 to help launch Magic 99.3 (CIUP-FM). Since 2008, he’s been hosting the morning show at Capital 96.3 FM (CKRA-FM).





  1. Was this the same Rob that was part of the ‘Rob, Val, and Barry’ show that replaced Fred L. at 96.9 Kiss back around 1998-1999? Big voice, the program didnt catch fire here in Vancouver.

  2. Congratulations to Rob. One of the best guys in the business and truly deserving of the roast ( celebration). Edmonton will be lose an icon when he eventually retires.
