Announcer Bios

I started doing radio when I was 19 in New Brunswick. After that, I did radio in the states for 5 years, then moved west to BC.. And now, Edmonton. I love Edmonton. People are great and everybody is rich from something they call oil.
 
The number one thing people say when they meet me is "I thought you'd be older and fatter." Then, followed by, "Where is Gillian?"... followed by, "It should be called the Yukon Jack show." I'm lucky to be surrounded by very talented people. I always say - I'm the most-successful least-talented broadcaster in the biz. When I started in radio I didn't think it would last for more than a month. That was twelve years ago. You know, that feeling has never gone away. Here's a quote that I think sums up my radio and comedy career: "Eighty percent of success is showing up." - Woody Allen

Radio is full of cliche'd crap that I hate. But the thing I hate most about radio is cliche'd radio station web site bios where the DJ's write "zany" stories about how they were raised by gypsies and were found under the porch of the radio station one day and given a job. Or bios where they do a 20 question type thing but answer it with "wacky" answers like..."Sex: Yes, please!" I promise you none of that here. I was born in Bangour, Scotland and soon immigrated to Millwoods where my family were fouding fathers of the T6L...building one of the first homes in an empty field that is now the Pollard Meadows neighbourhood.

CONTACT GILLIAN:
Ryan Maier - A.K.A. RyMy – 100.3 The Bear –

Morning Show Producer on The Paul Brown Show.

Keeps the Bear morning show on the tracks, but has been known to derail the train from time to time with awkward observations that were probably better left bottled up in his twisted head. When away from the studio, RyMy can be found hosting station events, doing live on location hits from local businesses, singing and playing the guitar in The Bear Band, and siphoning gas from unsuspecting motorists.
