Tony King

Tony King has a rapacious appetite to understand what makes humans tick. The author, broadcaster and bass player is a consummate asker-of-questions. After what he calls a “life-changing discovery” of music in high school, Tony’s thirst to experience the world led him to work in commercial radio in different Albertan cities. After a few years, he left for a degree in art and design from the University of Alberta.

The siren song of radio called to him again after graduation and he began producing programs for stations in Edmonton and Vancouver.
His career at CKUA began by covering for Tony Dillon Davis’ late-night show, Night Music. Since then Tony has hosted and produced multiple programs for CKUA, including the Saturday/Sunday Breakfast shows, Alberta Morning and, of course, his current show, Stardust. These days Tony is anchoring CKUA's mid-afternoons with his show Siesta.

Tony calls CKUA “one of the most precious radio resources on this planet” and says his involvement has expanded his musical appreciation immensely. “I have sat down to tea with artists such as Ron Sexsmith, Roy Forbes, Greg Keelor, Buck 65, Sue Foley and a host of others.”

A writer who has published short works of fiction, plus human interest stories on hockey, travel, food and movies, Tony is on a quest to live a deeply-experienced life.

“I am a self-confessed workaholic,” he says, “though I also tend to indulge my voracious appetite for travel, good coffee, cookies, wine, film and reading.”
