TV and radio host Gill Deacon returns as guest host to Q. You may know Gill from her work as an arts reporter, television host and best-selling author, but you'll also be able to hear her as the host of CBC's Here and Now beginning in September. Her week on Q so far has featured interviews with South African comedian Loyiso Gola, plus-size style blogger GabiFresh and pop culture critic Chuck Klosterman.
Stephen Quinn will be filling in for Jian during the weeks of August 5 and August 12. Coming to us from British Columbia's On the Coast, he's used to bringing Vancouverites a daily dose of important information. He's the creator and host of CBC Radio 1's Quinn's Quiz and a multiple RTNDA winner. While at Q, he spoke to Sopranos star and E Street band founding member Steve Van Zandt, author Neil Gaiman and pop sensation Robin Thicke.
Kevin Sylvester may be known best for his work as a CBC sportscaster, but beyond covering four Olympics, he's also an accomplished children's author. He's guest-hosted for The Current, The Sunday Edition and Sounds Like Canada, and we're looking forward to hearing him on Q, starting August 19. His guests include esteemed intellectual Noam Chomsky, zombie aficionado Max Brooks and colourful director Baz Luhrman.
