Simi Sara – 10 am to 2 pm Weekdays
The 2013 Webster Award Commentator of the Year, Simi Sara’s passion for storytelling and openness to listen to differing opinions is what will define her role in the CKNW lineup.

Drex Live – 6 pm to 10 pm Weekdays
A new voice from down under, Drex brings an edge to the CKNW radio lineup as he is clearly not afraid to push boundaries. With a previous broadcaster Drex challenged the Premier and lost his job but was quickly hired by Corus Radio.
