CBC to launch new Kamloops-area morning show

Shelley Joyce will be the new host of Daybreak Kamloops on CBC Radio

Clearwater and area residents will soon be waking up to a familiar voice and a new morning show this fall as CBC announced on Monday that Shelley Joyce will be the new host of Daybreak Kamloops.

Daybreak Kamloops will begin broadcasting on Oct. 9 at 6 a.m. on CBC Radio One at 860 AM in Clearwater. For more information on CBC in the Kamloops area, visit cbc.ca/kamloops

The new CBC Bureau is under construction at 218 Victoria Street in Kamloops. It will be home to the new morning show and digital service dedicated to local news, traffic and weather for residents of Kamloops and the surrounding areas.

Shelley has hosted radio programs in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna and written for The Winnipeg Sun, Today’s Parent and the Vancouver Province. She has been part of the CBC Kelowna team for the last six years and her stories have also been heard on CBC national radio programs The Current and The Story from Here.

“We have been looking forward to this new addition to the CBC service in British Columbia,” says Johnny Michel, managing director of British Columbia. “The show will reach more than 100,000 people in the area and with Shelley’s tenure in broadcasting and remarkable style of story-telling, we will hear great things from Daybreak Kamloops.”

“I would like to welcome the new CBC bureau to Kamloops,” said Cathy McLeod, Member of Parliament for Kamloops Thompson Cariboo. “This new bureau will not only bring expanded services to our local residents but further our community’s profile on the national stage.”

 

The new Bureau is part of CBC’s 5-year strategic plan, “Everyone, Every Way”. The plan, which was released February 2011, calls for a number of strategic priorities including expansion of service in Kamloops. For more information go to www.cbc.radio-canada.ca/strategy2015/
