Mark Connolly and Portia Clark were announced on Wednesday as the permanent hosts of CBC Radio One shows Edmonton AM and Radio Active, respectively.

“I am delighted that Mark and Portia are the voice of our morning and afternoon shows,” said Judy Piercey, managing director of CBC Edmonton, in a news release.

“In them, we have two great hosts who will continue to champion the best in Edmonton.”

Both Connolly and Clark were the hosts of the local supper hour television news cast in Edmonton.

Clark has been the interim host of Radio Active since December 2012. Connolly started hosting Edmonton AM in August following the departure of former host Rick Harp.

Former Radio Active host Peter Brown is now the producer of The Irrelevant Show, a national CBC Radio comedy show based in Edmonton.
