Buzz Bishop has long been a name I have been familiar with in Canadian radio, but only last week did I get a chance to connect with him for the first time. A mainstay at Z95, Crave and Virgin 95.3, he segued to Calgary in 2009 where he took up the Top 40 cause at Amp 90.3, before crossing the hall to work at XL103. In recent weeks, he has been joined with Samantha Stevens who is no stranger to Calgary, having worked there twice before.
What I really like about Buzz is his passion for radio AND technology. He hosted a syndicated feature called CyberBuzz which aired on a number of stations across North America. You may also know him from doing the Canadian Hot 20. He was also an early adopter of websites and later blogs when they peaked in the early 2010’s. In this episode you’ll hear us talk about radio adventures, some of the greatest programmers, some of the greatest promotions, and Buzz shares some relevant tactics for repurposing content in 2023.
