Roger Currie

Class of 1965

I've been a writer, broadcaster and storyteller in Canada for more than 40 years. I was born and raised in Winnipeg, where I graduated from Kelvin in 1965. After high school, I completed a Bachelor of Arts at St. John's College at the U of M.

I began my broadcasting career at CJOB in 1970, spending a total of 20 years there, including nine years as host of one of Canada’s first and most successful all information morning shows. I've also spent a total of 11 very rewarding years in Regina where my family roots run deep. My late father, Andrew Currie, played in two Grey Cups with the Roughriders in the late 1920's.

I first worked in Saskatchewan from 1977 to 1981 where I was news director at CKCK Radio. I returned to Regina in 2006 to do morning news and host programs at 620 CKRM.

My career has also included four years with CBC Radio in Winnipeg, 1987 to 1991. I was host of the afternoon information program, and co-hosted the morning edition for three years with Lesley Hughes.

In 2004, I was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Radio Television News Directors Association, and I also received the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal in recognition of my interest in stories about Canada's military veterans.

Over the past decade, I've also become more heavily involved in writing for print, and online, including articles and columns for a variety of publications. In 2007, I wrote my first book. "MTC 50" tells the story of the first half century of the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, Canada’s oldest regional company.

I have done a lot of sports coverage over the years. I've worked on the radio broadcast crews of both the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Along with the late Ken Nicholson, I did play by play coverage of the Winnipeg Whips baseball club in 1971.

I also love to sing, and in 1996 was featured on the holiday CD called Starry Starry Night. I sang Mary’s Boy Child on a best selling collection that also featured Randy Bachman. Loreena McKennitt and Fred Penner.

I've served on the boards of the major food banks in both Winnipeg and Regina. I've also been a member of four different Rotary clubs, including the club that made Rotary international, the Rotary Club of Winnipeg.
