Stephen Quinn is featured in the following program(s):

Stephen Quinn is host of CBC Radio One’s popular morning show The Early Edition, a post he has often been quoted as saying is his “dream job.” Every week day, listeners wake up and tune-in for their daily dose of breaking news, traffic, local stories, entertainment, and interviews.

Previously, Quinn was the long time host of afternoon radio show On The Coast, where he was known for featuring people from the community and covering the day’s local news. He also connected with listeners on social media during shows, allowing citizens to participate in conversations in real-time, adding another dimension to live radio. He spent eight-years as CBC’s civic affairs reporter. This position spearheaded his passion for municipal politics, as well as his unwavering interview style and skill in prompting answers from notable subjects while delving into important issues. Quinn has guest-hosted several CBC shows, news specials and a series on the media for network radio. He is also the creator and host of the very popular Quinn's Quiz on CBC Radio One.

A multiple RTNDA (The Radio Television Digital News Association) award winner, Quinn has covered a multitude of stories that affects British Columbians, in addition to interviewing prolific individuals. From live-reporting Abbotsford police officer John Davidson’s memorial service, the 2011 Stanley Cup hockey riots, to interviewing novelist Roddy Doyle, and Lieutenant-General Roméo Antonius Dallaire about his battle with PTSD from Rwanda, Quinn is able to engage in and shine light on a variety of subjects. In 2017, he was also awarded a Jack Webster Award for best radio breaking news for his coverage of the NDP-Green deal for a minority government.

Quinn is a British Columbia Institute of Technology graduate. Even in journalism school, his goal was to work with the CBC. Prior to joining CBC in 2000, he was a reporter with CKNW.

When not in the host chair, Quinn can be found on the road in his motorcycle, with his kids, cooking in his kitchen, or exploring Metro Vancouver’s burgeoning craft beer scene.
