Kerry Campbell is the new midday host on Capital-FM (CKRA). She had been one of the try-outs for the Morning News with Rob & Audie, and had also been on Capital-FM from time to time in the past.
Here is the official Capital-FM bio:
Kerry’s love affair with sound began on her 10th birthday, when her parents gave her a little radio/cassette player with a mic and a couple of blank tapes. Not only would she listen to all her idol radio announcers of the day, (Chuck Chandler on CKDA in Victoria, BC, The Racoon in the Afternoon on CFUN in Vancouver) she would then record herself mimicking their style. There were no women on the air waaaaaaay back then, but that didn’t stop Kerry. She would also sneak into her big brother’s room and steal his tapes. To this day she still knows every word to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and can recite the entire track list on Boston’s self-titled album in the correct order.
As Kerry got older, she got more into stage performing and singing, but by the time high school graduation rolled around, she realized she didn’t want to sling hash while waiting for her big break on Broadway. So she enrolled in a radio course at B.C.I.T. to combine her love of performing, music and radio. And the rest is history. Ancient history.
Kerry has spent most of her time on the West Coast of B.C., but in 2003 she packed up and moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates for a few years. If you ask her how it was, she’ll probably say…"interesting". You can interpret that any way you want.
Kerry moved to Edmonton with her family in 2008. She figured the weather was just like Dubai, only opposite. (It’s plus 40 in the summer there…minus 40 in the winter here). She’s still not quite used to the cold, but Kerry finds Edmontonians very warm, and loves the fact that snow and cold doesn’t stop anyone here from going about their business.
While Kerry’s moved around a lot, one thing that has never changed is her love of music. She is happily passing this appreciation on to her 7 year old daughter, who lists The Beatles, CCR and Elton John among her “idol bands”. Kerry also loves to dance. If you happen to be passing by the Capital FM studios during the midday show, be sure to glance in. Chances are you’ll see Kerry bustin’ a move. Then she’ll probably hobble over and ask you for the name of your chiropractor.
