About the Hosts
Terry has been hosting CBC Radio One 89.3 FM / 990 AM's morning show in Winnipeg since 1993. Terry eagerly bounces out of bed each day at 3:30 a.m. because that allows him to talk with Manitoba's most remarkable people.
Prior to moving to Winnipeg Terry was a producer and guest-host at CBC Radio's hit network show "Morningside" with Peter Gzowski. He started with CBC Radio in Thunder Bay Ontario in 1985. Terry grew up and received his BA in Psychology in Prince Edward Island and has lived and worked in much of the country including stints in Thunder Bay, Waterloo, Lake Louise, Vancouver, Arctic Quebec, the Eastern Townships and in Boulder, Colorado.
He has studied mime, painted tugboats, done social work, parked cars, been the village gardener of North Hatley, Que., made video art and acted in a comedia del arte theatre company.
Terry taught for the WaWaTa Oji-Cree radio network in Northwestern Ontario and the TNI Inuit network in Arctic Quebec. He has also guest-hosted CBC Toronto's morning show "Metro Morning", "Morningside in the Summer," "Sounds Like Canada" and "As It Happens." He has also been a contributor to "The Latest Morningside Papers" and for five years was the mainstage host of the National Milton Acorn Poetry Festival. Terry is the winner of four Thunder Bay Press Club Awards.
Terry is an active community volunteer with many delightful organizations.
In 2004 Information Radio from CBC Winnipeg won the CBC National Radio Award as the best regional program in the country - beating out every other CBC morning, noon and afternoon show in Canada.
Terry is married to the spectacular Ellen and delights in his two remarkable children.
Born and raised in Winnipeg, Marcy Markusa has strong roots in the local community and strives to make every story relevant to the people who call our province home.
She has been working as a journalist since 1996.
She got her start in Steinbach, Manitoba where she worked for a small radio station as a news reporter and reader. There she covered the 1997 flood from an airplane.
Marcy was pulled out of the newsroom to co-host the morning show when a new station opened up. She enjoyed hosting the show, but missed interviewing and meeting people at the music-driven station.
"I grew up wanting to be Barbara Walters or Oprah."
She moved back to Winnipeg and took a TV job hosting CityScape on Videon Cable 11.
"It was a community show that took me all over the city to cover lifestyle stories at the grassroots. It was also live which I loved because you get a big rush when you have to perform."
When Shaw bought out Videon, Marcy came over to CBC Manitoba. She's been here ever since.
Marcy loves hosting Information Radio live each morning and hopes to connect to listeners with her energetic warmth and sense of humour.
