Shelley Joyce, the new host of Daybreak Kamloops, and Josh Page, the associate producer, dropped by the Star/Journal office on Wednesday, Sept. 19 for an interview with the paper and Barriere Mayor Bill Humphreys.

Josh Page is new to the North Thompson Valley, having moved here from Saskatchewan, but Shelley Joyce has been to Barriere many times over the last few years, participating in the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo, driving through the Valley occasionally for the odd story for CBC Kelowna, and on holidays. She will be back in Barriere on the weekend to take in the Provincial Winter Fair, as well.

Daybreak Kamloops will air weekly, Monday through Friday from 6 to 8:30 a.m., starting Oct. 9, as part of CBC Radio One, bringing national, international and local news to Barriere on two frequencies: 860AM and 104.1FM. Topics will range from general news items, traffic reports, weather, and community events and stories.

Page and Joyce both assured Mayor Humphreys that when they do interview for their current affairs segments, those interviews are aired live, so that comments can’t be taken out of context by editing, as there is no editing.

 

Joyce will be delighted to do interviews about interesting people and events; anyone can call in with tips or story ideas. Their office will be open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 250-374-6802, and they can also be reached at kamloops@cbc.ca. Check them out at their website: www.cbc.ca/kamloops.
