News Anchor/Technical Producer, ZoomerMedia Limited
Coming from a background in the food and beverage industry, Jeremy spent the better part of 25 years running fine-dining kitchens before deciding to put down his knives and pick up a microphone. At the tender age of 45, Jeremy went back to school, attending Humber College’s Radio Broadcasting program. During that time, he trained in the Announcing pathway, operating as a host on 96.9 Radio Humber. But it was a pair of internships over the two-year program that set Jeremy on his current path.
In 2017 he secured an opportunity to intern over the summer at Sirius XM Canada, working as an Associate Producer for Channel 167 Canada Talks. There he conducted research for various host programs, pitched guest prospects, chase produced and wrote features. Then in the summer of 2018 Jeremy interned in the newsroom at 96.9 Radio Humber. There he operated as a News Anchor, researching and writing stories, conducting interviews and delivering newscasts on-air. It was this pair of internships that led Jeremy to discover a passion (and talent) for talk radio and delivering the news.
After graduating in 2018, Jeremy landed his first real gig at Corus Entertainment. While the job he applied for was Technical Producer (Board Op) for Global News Radio 640 Toronto, during his interview it came to light that the company was also about to need a weekend news anchor. Jeremy’s solution was to say, “I can do that, too!” After a year of functioning as a Board Op for various talk shows, producing podcasts and serving as the weekend news anchor, Jeremy was presented with an opportunity he couldn’t ignore, in the form of Zoomer Media.
Making the move in 2019, Jeremy functions as a News Anchor (weekends and weekdays) for Zoomer Radio AM740 and The New Classical FM 96.3. He also serves as Technical Producer and fill-in Chase Producer for current events talk show Fight Back With Libby Znaimer. And while he still knows his way around a kitchen, Jeremy has not had a moment of regret in making this career change…and is continuously thankful that he gets to spend every day surrounded by smart, funny, hard-working people that challenge and inspire him to pursue excellence.
