Russ McCloud. McCloud’s radio career began at CKPG Prince George and CKOV Kelowna in the early 1970s. He joined CFUN Vancouver in 1976, before being drafted by CHUM Toronto in 1984 where he is thought to hold the record for the longest, uninterrupted stint in nights on the station – from ‘84 to ’93 – before moving into afternoons. Known for his energy and enthusiasm, McCloud was on-air at CHUM for nearly 17 years, also working with AM sister station 1050 CHUM as host of the nationally syndicated “Canadian Countdown” show. He went on to host middays on CINW AM 940 Montreal, until the station went dark in January 2010.
