Throughout the Canada Reads campaign, authors Jeff Lemire, Angie Abdou, Ami McKay, Terry Fallis and Anne Giardini (on behalf of her mother, Carol Shields) spoke to CBC regional stations across the country.
Airplay is the afternoon show in Whitehorse. Host Dave White spoke to each of the Canada Reads authors, dissecting everything from the merits of the Jeff's graphic novel to the inspiration for Ami's historical tale. The interviews aired throughout January.
Airplay also hosted its own Canada Reads debates, with local personalities Victoria Castillo, Jerome Stueart, Leighann Chalykoff and Colin MacDonald discussing the contenders.
