Andrew Beckler from X92.9

Andrew Beckler is the morning host at X92.9 in Calgary. The station is pretty special in that it started nearly 13 years ago, has only had 1 program director in its time, and has been building it’s audience since 2007 starting with a Hot Hot Heat concert to ring in the New Year in 2008. The station has also had very low staff turnover and developed a culture unlike any other in Canada; comparable only to KNDD 107.7 the End in Seattle. Anyhow – more about Andrew… who was raised in Saskatoon and still sports a watermelon hat and a green jersey

Terry O’Reilly is a radio guy. He will tell you on the show that he is an ad guy – and that might be partially true. However, it is apparent that when you listen to his take on the world of media, advertising, marketing and radio, that he is grounded in radio.
