Todd has been involved in Christian radio since 2004! He started out as a volunteer in North Bay, then full time in Sudbury. Now Todd is one of the voices you hear every morning on the Get-Up & Go Show. He says a Gideon bible, a scary movie and a Kazoo played a big part in his coming to the Lord! He’s had an appreciation for Christian music since 1984 when the big bands were Petra, Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant! When he’s not on the air at LIFE, Todd enjoys playing drums at church, biking the trails with his wife, Rose, building models and doing stand-up comedy!
