Ken Connors: On His Terms – The Sound Off Podcast with Matt Cundill


One of the first questions I ask people when they make a decision to leave their radio job under the guise of retirements is: “Were you pushed or did you jump?” Unlike the Terry Dimonte “retirement” where he was clearly pushed, Ken Connors is leaving his weekend morning job at CJAD 800am on his own terms.

In this episode, you will hear all about Ken’s career which started at McGill Radio, continued throughout Ontario, to Ottawa and back to Montreal. Ken spent most of the 90’s at CHOM and then he shifted to Standard Broadcasting’s CJFM where he remained for 6 years before moving to 940 News, Q92 and then it was back to CJAD where he has been since 2016. A fairly remarkalbe career in North America’s most unique radio market. Ken and I spent a little bit of time reminiscing about those days at CHOM, and some of things we learned about the broadcast business. Ken is well liked, a nice guy and was fun to work with on and off the air.

A transcript and video of the show is available here.
