“Shaye has done an amazing job connecting with listeners during his time on CHED and CHQR. A born and raised Albertan, he is a natural fit for extending this new show across the province and connecting with listeners in every town and city,” said John Vos, Regional Program Director, Corus Radio Alberta. “Shaye Ganam will be zeroed in on the things that matter to Albertans. He brings the facts, the insight, humour and understanding of topics that influence our day-to-day lives.”
