John Christie

Evening and Weekend Host

Owen Sound native John Christie began broadcasting in 1967, while still a high school student, when he joined CFOS as a part-time weekend and summer relief announcer.  Upon graduation the following year, he became a full-time staffer, working on-air and as a copywriter and producer.  1971 saw a move to Kitchener/Waterloo, where a stay at a pair of AM/FM stations resulted in an eventual appointment as copy-chief.  After two and half years it was on to London, serving there as senior copywriter, promotions co-ordinator, and program researcher/producer.  John returned to the Georgian Bay region in 1983, working full-time in the transportation industry,but retaining a freelance relationship with radio. He re-joined Bayshore Broadcasting in 2004, and now serves as a Remember When evening host, is heard on weekend and holiday afternoons, and may show up filling in at almost any time.  Now semi-retired, John has served as a two-term Owen Sound City Councillor, and has co-written two books.  He lives with wife Carol in Owen Sound.
